Hey everyone! I recently graduated this past December and started my current role January 24th. Just this morning I had a recruiter from Meta reach back out to me about a role I applied too last month. Should i schedule an interview with the recruiter? What if it goes well? Would it look bad if I quit my current position to take this role if I end up getting an offer? One reason I would want to switch is because the pay would most likely be a lot higher at Meta then in my current position.
For a school like Yale SOM, is it important to show a non-profit interest or background in my application? I have no interest in social enterprise but genuinely love the school.
I came across this job posting by Credit Suisse where they explicitly say "Prior experience must be from a global organization (not from an India company)". That's hilarious considering the para above the post talks about their values of diversity & inclusion.
I found it pretty discriminatory, as the position is based in India, providing support to the India office. Maybe if the job poster had been from "an India company" there wouldn't have been a typo in this job post.
Any bass players here? Looking to get my boyfriend a bass guitar for Christmas (he plays guitar and wants a bass guitar to mess around with) thinking around $200-$250. Would love any suggestions!
I Built Better Keyboard Shortcuts For Google Slides
I recently left consulting and moved to industry (a tech startup) and life has been great.
However, a major downside has been that I'm now forced to use Google Slides.
Quick edits are fine, but anything involving more than a few sides is physically painful to do. This was so annoying that I ended up building a solution (slideswhiz.com).
Is there anyone from Carmichael Lynch in here?
Any high volume corporate recruiters out there? I need advice, I have about 130-150 reqs, but about 300 open positions. I’m managing ok, but I’ll be passing off some of my sow soon because its not sustainable long term. One of my decks has about 100 reqs, and +\- 130 positions, the other 30-50 reqs holds almost 200 positions. So lower req load but more positions, or higher req load, less positions. It’s up to me to decide and I can’t choose :( plus I love all my hiring managers so it’s personal.
Anyone’s 2 yr old listen to one vs the other? Kid listens to dad, and tells dad when he needs to use the potty. Kid doesn’t listen to me, and pees himself (def not an accident, he knows when he needs to go). What did you do? How did you fix this? So tired of being seen as the soft parent by my kid.
Can confirm, this past weekend N Wells establishments were not enforcing the rules. This is what you get. Talking to you FPI.
What’s the probability of getting business school sponsorship from MBB? And how does only having ~1 year working there impact chances? I really enjoy my AI/data science work at Deloitte and am 90% sure I’ll get sponsored to go in Fall 2023 (have 2+2 acceptance) but like everyone else I find MBB appealing for the work/people/brand/pay. Trying to decide if an offer’s worth taking before starting the casing grind
Is Accenture big enough to acquire WPP? Would they? Or is it going to be a boxing showdown between the two. What about the rest?

Hello fishbowl ! I am considering a move to the UK or Europe and wanted to know if anyone could share how the average salary for a Deloitte manager in Amsterdam compares with the UK? Trying to arm myself with some facts to help with planning and decision-making 😅Deloitte
Curious of other jobs/careers LPN/RN do other than bedside nursing that isn't management or pharmacological. Looking for different career options?
How much cash do you keep on hand (cold hard cash)? I have $7k sitting in a safe and have been thinking of splitting it between an HYSA to fluff my emergency fund and finish off my TIRA contribution for the year. If I leave it as cash I will still hit my TIRA max out by eoy.
Im trapped in that the work I’ve done professionally is not really worth putting in my portfolio yet I’m told I’m too experienced for junior positions. What do I do?

Ppl who work in small offices, did you invite anyone (or all) from the office to your wedding? Anytime there's been a wedding at my office everyone has gone. I feel like I can't just invite the attorneys and not staff. I feel like it's almost expected I have to invite everyone. But an extra 20 people ain't cheap.

Does anyone have tips on using excel to streamline document review? For example, I have a file of 300 excel sheets, each with various properties that I want to log, but so far I’m only able to get document titles and the occasional property, but not the ones I need.
I feel that my spouse and I have different expectations of our careers. I want to be extraordinary and they settle for just a job. I constantly am making moves such as expanding, buying different businesses, working really hard on important matters. They ask me why I'm doing all this? My answer is I want to be really successful. They take the 9-5 then I'm done position.
Merry Christmas! Put the work away 🎄(unless you don’t celebrate and want to work because you like punishment)
Partner sends me fairly complex “quick research” assignment at 5:30, to come up with creative transactional solutions to a particular issue. You drop other things send them some solid ideas and they say oh i meant to ask you this. And the real question was something everyone in the office could have just said “no that’s impossible” without having to check.
It’s only my second time leading a M&A deal and drafting the merger agreement. Partner is super nice and responsive, but it took MANY rounds of comments to get it in shape. I just hope the partner doesn’t think I’m completely stupid and never works with me again How many times/deals did it take you to feel like you got the hang of it??
I’m applying for admission in NY, I just got an email asking to be interviewed for potential C&F issues. The interviewer seems nice but what’s the best play here? More in comments.
Can anyone estimate what I should be making as a 5.5yr attorney? 3.5yrs @ the SAO so I understandably shouldn’t be where a typical 5th year would be…
Just found out my raise for the year and it’s an increase of 5.6%. It is the raise I would’ve received last year, but then that was halted due to covid and no one got raises. I’m the most senior associate and have been told I’m on partner track, but I think the raise should’ve been higher and am pissed, but I’m also grateful to still have a job with covid. What raises have you gotten and how has covid impacted your compensation? I’m in a mid size insurance defense firm in the PNW.
Any thoughts on Wilson Sonsini (DC) office? Any updates as to return to office/flexible working arrangements? TIA.
Earth may be closed today, but you better believe I’m still getting email invites to CLEs on “Mastering Cannabis” and “Rock n Roll Law”.
First-year associate here. For all those who have lateraled in this market, do you recommend I make the jump to a bigger law firm? I love my partner and enjoy the work, but the compensation is extremely low for comparable mid-size firms. I bill over the minimum billable requirements every month, and I’ve been told I’m a good associate and have good work product. Lately, it’s hard to feel motivated knowing that I’m billing as much as people making double what I make.
