Hey Fishes, if you are looking for an experienced Data scientist to help you with interview preparation at FAANGs or WITCH irrespective, career coaching for DS profiles, Data Science mentorship, you can DM me. I am a 10+ years experienced Data Scientist open to help/guide/share my DS experience with budding DS or DS folks planning to switch or need guidance in work.
I'm currently in Tech Sales. However, I want to work with FAANG; it's literally my greatest dream. I have a UX Design Cert from General Assembly that I earned last year.
After months of applications and rejections, I left and got into tech sales because I knew I'd easily get a job and bills had to be paid.
I think I failed to get jobs because of a lack of visual design skills (my specialties were in project management and user research), and weak portfolio. What should I do?

Interviewed two weeks ago and still haven’t heard back. The recruiter isn’t responding to my follow up email. Bad sign?

Has anyone started in-house and made the transition to a firm? I started in-house right out of law school, but I’m looking to make a move at some point. The perks of in-house are great, but I have a lack of motivation most days and would like to get more exposure by working at a firm. Any advice or success stories would be appreciated.
In my experience pro se litigants normally appear crazy. I have an appeal of a police licensing decision that I want to do pro se because I don't think it's that complicated, I can't find a lawyer I like / trust in this area, and they all want a ton of money to do it.
What is your opinion on lawyers representing themselves pro se?
Been a long time since I took crim, so would love to hear from someone in the know -
What’s going on in this Kyle Rittenhouse case - is the Judge in the tank for the defendant, or is the prosecutor just bad?
Everything I'm seeing suggests this prosecutor is incompetent, and that makes me very, very nervous.
If you're negotiating a start date with a new firm and you need to give your current firm 2 weeks and want some time to yourself before starting, but you already have a vacation planned in the early fall, is it an issue to take 2-3 weeks before starting as long as you're clear that you have a pre-planned trip?
How many rounds of interviews is too many? At what point do you say, I don’t have the time for all these hoops?
I’m plaintiff’s side employment litigator. I want desperately to switch back to defense. But here’s the wrinkle… I have a fairly sizable docket of active cases in which I am opposing counsel to virtually all the defense side firms I’d like to work for. Is there an ethical way to navigate this conundrum, or am I just stuck?
Those in ID, what are some of your common and repetitive weekly/monthly tasks that you go through to pick some easy .1-.3’s on each case?
Does anyone use an iPad for note-taking at the office? I imagine it would be more beneficial and save more time than going back and forth on the legal pads. Any insight on what bells and whistles are needed (if any)? Thanks so much!!

If you are an associate assisting on a file, you get cc’d on all emails and take time to read them and stay up to date, however you aren’t actually replying to the emails or doing any billable work. But you need to stay in the loop for when you need to eventually draft a document and know the facts. How do you record your time for these emails?
I’m looking to confirm/check that a New York attorney can represent a Delaware entity for general corporate and transactional work. Does anyone have a direction they can point me to to find the answer? I have looked through the NY ethics rules and opinions but didn’t have any luck. Thank you in advance!
Thoughts? How many associates do you think feel like this? Would it change law firm culture if we didn’t feel so insecure?
Thought it was an interesting article.
What’s the best way to turn down a 2nd interview? During the 1st interview, I learned that the compensation for the role is not within the range that I am looking for and requires 400 more billable hours a year than what I bill now. I’d basically be laterally for my current salary just to bill 400 more hours. I also wasn’t aware that the local office was strictly ID. Firm website advertises lots of practice areas. Any advice? TIA!

Hello, first year associate trying to pick a writing sample for another litigation position I'm applying for. I've been in my current litigation position for 1 year. Any advice on what kind of motion would be best?
I've written motions to compel discovery or deposition appearance, MIL to preclude evidence or testimony, MIL to limit scope of testimony, motion in response to plaintiff's objection, statement of facts?
I feel it is probably a good time to stop using my 1L writing sample.
