This weekend I accidentally sent an email to OC that was supposed to go to the client. I didn’t have the clients email and only had the OCs email, but I still should have double checked before sending. It ended up not being a huge deal bc it was a mostly agreed upon settlement agreement and my senior associate and partner walked me through a follow up email to OC. They were pretty cool about it, but I can’t stop cringing. How do I try to move forward and not feel totally idiotic about this??

Anyone in an interfaith marriage? How is it?
Just accepted a lateral move in my company but since I had applied to other positions, I’m still getting calls for interviews a month later. Have you ever had an experience of still interviewing after accepting a position? Have you ever left a job very shortly after being hired? I feel a bit guilty though I know I shouldn’t. I’m interested in this new job since it’s a permanent position and my current one is a contract with similar tasks and potential salary bump. Any advice appreciated!
