I’m a second year associate with a split lit/transactional practice interviewing (second round) for an in house position this week. Interview is with the general counsel. Any interview tips? Wondering what questions I should make sure to ask and what skills to highlight given it’s a more entry level in house position and they know I’m coming from firm experience. Thanks in advance!
Is the interview process different for a sr. coming back to Big 4 vs external sr. hire? What is the interview process for a boomerang sr at big 4? It would be at a different office so can’t rely on reputation besides a referral. Trying to gauge how much prep work would be needed. Multiple rounds? Technical and cultural fit components? Pretty standard or just sorta depends? Thanks

Applying to a technical accounting position and the Company is asking for a writing sample. They have two options I could either write on a case scenario that they provide me or I can provide a writing sample from something that I have written before. I have a memo talking about a 606 cut off considerations it’s not very technical but I think it would address the request do you guys think this would be enough or should I just do the writing case scenario￼?
Trying to exit into FAANG but know it may be a long shot involving a handful of rejections. Meanwhile got approached by a number of recruiters for a) smaller emerging startup <but need to shift geo>, and b) major banks for in-house strategy. I’ll proceed with interviews with a) since it will give me a flavour of tech recruiting, but should I even go through with interview process for b)? Thoughts? Fyi, have not interviewed in 4+ years!

I have no idea how to get motivated again. I am a legit zombie that sits and types for hours and hours without talking to anyone. I feel like a shell of a person. And nobody in management cares about any associates well being in this remote environment. I’m a person who likes to talk about things, but I am well aware that nobody in management would even want to actually do anything to help. Is anyone else feeling the same?

I’m buying a house with my SO and MOST of the down payment is coming from me. Both our names will be on the deed / title. We are getting married very soon! However, because I’ve been very busy at work, I wired her the money to go get a cashiers check with our down payment and closing costs for our closing. I noticed that the “Remitter” on the cashiers check she got only has her name on it. Is this a problem? Should I have the cashiers check changed to have both our names on it for legal reasons?
