Anyone had a firm do a background check done using RAI? It’s been over a week and I haven’t heard anything. I’m surprised it’s taking this long because there’s nothing in my background that would raise any issues.

I don’t remember what service my firm used, but it took a couple weeks. There is nothing to find on me. The delay was due to delays in connecting with HR at my former firm to confirm I gave accurate dates (sounded like a lot of unproductive phone tag; I left on very good terms and spoke with the HR person - she was trying!).

Thank you so much. I really appreciate this. I feel like clerkships are seen as such an amazing job, which it can be, but it depends so much on the environment. And a bad environment coupled with living in a high col city on a clerk’s salary has added a lot more stress and unhappiness than anything. I’m really looking forward to getting back to practice.

You sure don’t come across as confident that there’s nothing to find. Relax!

Just relax man (or girl or whatever you identify yourself)

What r the chances of a person who’s only had in-house experience for 7-8 yrs to lateral into Biglaw? I have had pretty rich experience for in-house (leading internal investigations, directly reporting to management on risks/legal issues, etc.). I recently moved to NYC (my company’s headquarters) but would love to go into Biglaw. Promotion seems to be an uphill battle at my company unless u r from Biglaw. How to start networking and get my foot in the Biglaw door?

How to let a firm know comp expectations changed due to a raise at the current employer? Gave a firm a range and they offered me a base comp at the low end of my range. Not sure how I feel about this. Thoughts on this? Would expect them to meet me at least in the middle. Current comp is going to be very close to 90k at the end of the year. Initially gave a range of 95 - 110 (when my comp was still in the low 80s). They met me at 95. I have almost 2 YOE. Thanks!

I’m an A2 up for promotion so I should be performing like a new senior, but I feel like it’s clear that I’m not close. For more context, it’s a first year audit so maybe that...
