I’m at a midsize firm in the Midwest and I’ve noticed that we’ve hired multiple associates who all graduated law school the same year. Some are coming from clerkships, other firms, etc., but they’re all on the same graduation year. This feels like it’s setting up a squeeze down the road for these folks with respect to partnership. Is there something I’m missing or is this something that will cause issues down the road?

A recruiter reached out to me about a role that sounded interesting. I sent him my CV and he got back saying that the hiring manager wants me to add more details about my work and the projects I have worked on in the CV. I already have a broad description about my work and I have a confidentiality clause on my contract that doesn’t allow me to list any projects. I told him about that and he told me this is a bit strange and didn’t hear any other candidate having this issue. What should I do?
