Thougts on this - I’m an associate in big law real estate transactions team. 8 months in.already feeling swamped and can’t see this going on for the next years as it likely just gets worse. Been interviewing for a smaller firm litigation dep. hours are perfect and pay is manageable. Am I making the right choice or should I stick it out more? No debt issue, as school is paid for, so it’s just a personal preference. Will I regret it?
I was asked in a video interview what I do for fun and I said that my indoor cycle has been a really great outlet during quarantine and I felt like I got weird up and down looks and just a bad vibe because I’m not clearly thin or athletic woman... but it doesn’t mean I don’t like to exercise! Anyone else experience this or something similar?

Hi FB family - seeking some help for my soon to be graduating son. He has an interview with capital one. He’s cleared other stages thus far. This last one he’s pretty intimidated by because it includes some type of case interview where the Capital One team will share a pseudo code type case. Anyone know what the format of that interview is? What type of case to expect? Appreciate any guidance on how to prep. Thanks in advance.

My anxiety has snowballed in the past month and I’m really struggling. If you think about that feeling of nervousness you feel when you’re about to walk into a job interview.. that’s how I feel all day every day. I’m suddenly nervous/anxious about EVERYTHING, even when I’m not thinking about anything. It’s to the point where last night I couldn’t fall asleep bc my heart wouldn’t stop racing in nervousness but there’s nothing I could/should have been nervous for. Has anyone else experienced this?

My husband just called me slut today as I took a call (emergency work call) instead of helping to make my kid sleep. He does majority of childcare due to his schedule but shouting at me that I am a slut when I am trying to make a living hurts . He has his parents trust fund to go back to and we are already in counseling . I am terrified I would be living on the streets (what if there is a lay off) and divorced . Vent over . Thanks for reading .
Fish….. have discussed this w many ppl and so far have 1/10 as supportive of this idea but no clear feedback about why this idea won’t work.. Would like to present a 5-10 yr NPV of the value I bring to firm (ie my bill rate x hours worked - salary) in order to illustrate why an increase in compensation for me would make sense to them - why wouldn’t it be persuasive!?
