Advice needed!! Have 8+ years of compliance/legal/in house experience (not privacy law except HIPAA). I really want a Privacy Counsel role so I took and passed the CIPP/US and CIPM exams this past year. I’ve been offered an Associate Director job at PwC. Is this a good stepping stone to a Privacy Counsel role? How long should I expect to work at PwC before I could apply to Privacy Counsel roles??

Anyone have good alternatives to the integer card game for 7th grade? With Covid I don't think I can use the cards
Is there any additional tangible value in getting the CIPM in addition to the CIPP (I.e., will a company hire a candidate with both the CIPP and CIPM over one with just the CIPP, if both candidates have same YOE)?
What are some books you'd recommend, which fall in the self help category? PS - I don't read a lot of books, but this category interests me.
Would request you to share a brief synopsis of the book too, to explain how the same is worth a read.

Zoom (or similar) completely sucks, I know. BUT. Out of the shitty “digital social games” you’ve played on these platforms, which ones are actually at least an ounce of fun?
Which privacy cert would you go for, CIPM or CIPT? Debating which I should test for, since I have competency in both. Which has better ROI for career, or in greater demand in industry?
Hi! I’m looking for non-fiction book recommendations. Memoirs, self-help, business... anything really 🤗 TIA!
Confession time -- If I can get away with it, I always take a shot or two of liquor to calm my nerves before phone interviews.
Kindly recommend some self help books!
Low billable, low pressure work in patent lit, tech trans or privacy law? Slowly realizing that as my boys get older, the money isn’t worth what I’m missing out on. Currently a patent litigation associate with lots of hearing, depo and trial experience (I’ve appeared on my own at hearings/depos) at a well respected firm. Have my CIPM and CIPP/US /E and /C. Just feeling the burn out; 2000 hours of billables a year just isn’t sustainable for me long term. Money isn’t a huge issue.

My local Chinese grocery store seems to be stocked very well according to my mom! The only good thing about all this anti-Asian xenophobia is I can buy more frozen turnip cakes and Xiao Lon bao
I live in Florida. Wearing a mask in the grocery store is stifling and I fight the urge to rip off my mask because it’s so hot. I don’t know how I’ll make it through an entire day of teaching wearing a mask when it feels like I’m suffocating. Is anyone else wondering the same thing? And if I’m feeling like that I’m sure some students will, too. Thoughts? Suggestions?
Most of my cases don't ever even reach litgation. However, I just settled my first case that I truly thought was going to trial. The feeling is odd. A mix between satisfaction and disappointed. We won but it was still odd.
EY India Hello All, I got interviewed by EY India GDS and HR informed me that I am selected and I will receive an offer letter soon and my salary is discussed. And I think many are waiting for an offer letter from EY. If you belong to this category please comment on how long does it take to receive an offer letter after you have compensation approval.

But my job is a big unknown right now Super high anxiety about all the unknowns. Help
