Any tips on meeting with your RP? Any specific topics I should touch on apart from the projects and my contribution to the firm.

Clearly and concisely communicate your goals

I might be outside the norm but I'm able to have unstructured free forming conversations with my rp. I just talk about career goals, how I've been doing on my projects and just life in general. 😊 nothing formal, very relaxed.

Ask for what you want. It is an under-appreciated skill.
