So, stupid question. At my biglaw firm we’ve taken paycuts and the partners have slowed their distributions. What does this actually mean? Management would not tell us if they were actually taking a pay cut. At the end of the year, if profits stay the same because of our paycuts, will they still make the same amount?

Hi. I’m relatively new to recruiting and my role is primarily in supporting recruiters. I’ve noticed that even when I include a specific request or call to action, that my emails receive a response less than 50% of the time. Is this lack of responsiveness indicative of company culture or more about the culture of recruiting, since they receive so many emails? Thoughts? I’ve not experienced this rate of responsiveness in any organization I’ve worked for. I am beginning to take it personally.

Hi all, I am really trying to pivot into PM, but I am running into hurdles with my history. I do have several years of project management experience, but no formal certifications. My current employer utilizes Kanban, but we don’t use WIP boards (we basically have to memorize where all our projects are at). We only use a CRM to manage our projects. I’m trying to get a Google project management certificate, as this counts towards the PMP, but I’m too burnt out. Any recs for courses/carts?
I dress conservatively and wear minimal makeup but I still get hit on by prospects all the time. The worst is when a prospect accepts a meeting with you and then doesn’t even talk business :(

Hi All! I hope you guys are staying safe and healthy.
I am hosting a free workshop for teachers that I thought might benefit you. The workshop is called From Unsettled to Prepared Classroom. I am giving you the tools you need to feel organized and ready for this upcoming school year. There is so much that is still uncertain and it can be super daunting to start to plan for a year like this one.

In the interview process and company just had layoffs which impacted me. When/how should I let companies I’m interviewing with know?
As realtors, our worst and best friend are the contractors, being friends with the contractor that remodelled a home you are going to sell is a plus because you can know for sure what kind of improvements were made to the house and why; and what kind of things are pending to be improved, that way you can provide real information to the client. You know what they say: a happy client always comes back to you.
