Tips on writing a resume...

1. Don't apply with only 1 resume. Tailor your resume based on the industry (e.g. e-commerce, fintech, etc.) & Companies (e.g. Amazon, Google, etc.)

2. Read the job descriptions & responsibilities. Check the repeating words & phrases...then use those when you're tailoring your resume. Why? Lots of companies (esp. biiig onez) use ATS and it filters ones that match their JD. Resume is a tool to knock the company's door. So knock them well and with strategies!

I work at a small firm and I am the only first year associate. A semi-frequent problem I have is I will send a partner my research findings and never hear back. I automatically assume this means my work was not helpful/total crap, and they just don’t want to hurt my feelings. Of course there could be other reasons but....Is it okay to send a follow-up email to ask if what I sent was helpful or if I can be of further help?

Thought experiment for you, fishies.

We all love to hate on billable hours. What’s a real, feasible alternative???

Small agency owner 🙋🏻‍♂️ I’ve wracked my brain and have 3 biz model options, none great:

Billable hrs: Generally accepted. We all know the downsides.

Pay4performance: Big upside potential, tons of risks.

Project pricing: Cloak for billable hours. You have to estimate project cost with something.

Who’s thought of a better approach??? Genuinely curious if there is one.
