Anyone have advice for landing interviews? How are folks applying? I started applying for jobs a month back but only have 2 interviews so far. Feel like I'm doing something wrong.

Cold apps or referrals? Are you doing the bare minimum or adding a cover letter?

Are you tailoring your resume for each position? And are your referees able to vouch and advocate for you or is it more or a surface level arrangement where they just enter your details in their internal system? I think another factor as well is what kind of exits you’re targeting and how much demand they have for talent currently.

I’m interviewing for in-house and firm roles and I’m not sure how to navigate the compensation issue. My first job out of law school was with a state regulatory agency so comp was slotted and basically limited to salary and PTO. What should I be looking for when I interview in-house? With a firm? I don’t want to leave compensation on the table and end up feeling undervalued later.
