For your resume, how many bullet points under your XP with your firm straight out of college is too many? I’m a senior and don’t have anything else since college that’s relevant.

Done with 2 rounds of interview with Birlasoft and HR asked for some documents.
When I can expect the offer letter?
How do you deal with interviewing with someone who was your old boss. With the old boss I had some problems with my performance the first year, but turned it around and worked there another 5 years. I just don’t know if the old boss will mention this to my interviewer ( they are friends). Do I admit I made mistakes and talk about how I improved from them?
Am I being too judgmental? During the interview process I ask questions that help me identify culture. During my recent interview I directly asked “How would you describe your culture?”, and it was described as “work hard, play hard”. I expected a much more meaningful reply. Thoughts?

It’s been 3.5 weeks since my last round of interview for an operational risk Goldman Sachs, I’ve tried to reach out to the recruiter to follow up for a status update but been ghosted ever since, should I move on from that role or is it a normal turnaround time for that company?

So I recently interviewed with Microsoft and told them about a competent offer when they asked. Now the HR is forcing me to share the complete offer letter instead of just the annexure so as to prove that the offer is actually mine. Can they do so? They are anyways offering me a lesser base salary but they say that they need it for the approvals. What do u suggest guys?

Can someone please help with with possible Oracle interview coding questions on Oracle SQL
Should you always negotiate? I never gave a range during the interview process, I had a TC # in my mind. Got an offer and TC was exactly what I would've asked for. I will take the job.
That said, is there any harm to negotiating for higher here? I don't have any data to back why I deserve a higher #, but feel it's a missed opportunity to just accept the first offer
Just picked this up!

Advice: I'm taking over a new thread, and I've been shadowing the current lead. The development team appears to need a LOT of handholding. During our daily standup, I find that we spend over 45 mins (15 min meeting) daily going over code. There is so much handholding. I do not have a strong background in the language that they are using. I'm very concerned about the strength of the team. I'm not sure if I should inform my manager? I don't think I have the expertise to lead the team cont....

To experienced attorneys at large employers, has anyone tried starting a small side practice in a different area of law (wills & trusts, for example) and succeeded in building it out over time? Notwithstanding my present employer being happy/okay with this, curious as to the feasibility when I have no real experience in the practice area.
Would like a separate law-related side hustle to potentially build into my full time work down the road. Thanks.

SOS to anyone in the Austin, Texas area! About to be 3rd year associate with experience in financial services, bankruptcy, regulatory compliance (mostly consumer and bank focuses) and litigation. Can’t stand my tiny firm after being here for over a year. Keep making it to final round interviews for roles (in-house, mid-size firms) I’m probably a bit “under-qualified” for but no luck. Looking for any advice on firms/companies to look at. I’ll also happily accept any jokes to make me feel better.

I once knew a partner that would have his associates check every punctuation mark’s font and size, as well as number of spaces for applicants. If a single thing was off, even a single period by 1 size, or if you mistakenly put two spaces after a period but used only one space after all other periods, he would trash your resume with no response. His reason was “there are so many of you on the market I can afford to be that picky about who I interview.”
Also.... If a partner asked me to do that as non billable time.... I'd snap
Maybe I’m snooty but I think the cover letter should be perfect in terms of grammar and clean appearance. It should be one or two paragraphs and if you can’t proof that and get perfect I’d worry about briefs and letters going out in work for the firm. That said I’ll forgive a comma or minor typos in the real stuff as long as only happening on occasion. But in a two paragraph letter that is an introduction to how the candidate writes there is no room for error.
Well prepared cover letter and cv are a must. Checking for an extra space seems a bit nutty, but you absolutely have to be at your best, and have no good reason not to.
After that, I am looking for smart and a history of effort. Deliberately avoid “cause” lawyers, as well as those whose work and academic history reflect a lack of effort or focus.
When I reviewed clerkship applications, I rarely even looked at cover letters. I'd go straight to school, grades, and work experience.
In my view, a cover letter shouldn't say more than "my name is X, I'm applying for Y position, enclosed are my materials, thank you for your consideration.". If you can't do that without a typo that's pretty lackluster, but I likely wouldn't notice either way.
This is a really subjective issue, but for the judge I clerked for (court of appeals in a large city), it was rare to extend interviews to applicants from schools outside the top 50. And most of the people hired went to T14 schools.
