Question for fellow attorneys:
I applied to a credit card with Chase a few months ago and within 7 days I was told it was rejected and they would send a letter explaining why.
Chase has recently calling to say it expired (they said it wasn’t rejected but I was told on the recorded line that it was).

Has anyone here negotiated dog care expenses while traveling for work? I am single, live alone, and have two dogs and it’s not cheap to board them or have a sitter when I travel ($100/day). I am in talks for a job with lots of travel and it would be a significant cost to me to care for them while I’m away. Asking friends to take care of them isn’t a long term solution for a job with 25% travel. Any tips for how to bring this up and ask for this to be covered contractually?
Should we actually start posting our rates and salaries?? I work for stepping stones group, I was recruited under a travel contract and they tried to renege. My current offer is for 62/ hour but direct service only aka I only get paid if I’m with kids/ Medicaid billing.

Finally picked up the phone to get help. I have a telephone assessment this afternoon and they sent me an Anxiety and a Depression questionnaire to fill out with a scoring system. Always knew I had anxiety - turns out it’s severe anxiety - and looks like I have moderate-severe depression. Good to be aware but also bit difficult to stomach. Wish me luck on this journey…..

Started at Slalom a few months ago after multiple big 4 stops. Best decision I’ve ever made for my career. If you’re current B4 and want to learn more, let me know. They’re building something truly great though and happy to be a part of it.
Edit (some are asking but I’ll reply in comments or DM)
1) tremendous WLB and people centric approach - people centric is not lip service.
2) pay is more than competitive and growth has been great -
3) you make a real impact on clients.
