1) Billable ID attorneys, HOW do you consistently bill 8-10 hours a day. Idk how to bill besides that you need to do it immediately.
And 2, how long did it take for you to get comfortable billing.

For the first time in a long time, I am excited to teach something new! I replaced The Crucible as my drama unit with Hamilton. My kids are stoked to be reading something modern (even if it is about an old dead guy)! Any one else out here teaching Lin-Manuel Miranda's play to your high school students?
To any fish familiar with recruiting at Mck SF - can I expect to do the PST or digital assessment as part of the pre-screen for a BA role?
Absolutely struggling at finding a new job. Updated materials, implemented job search tips and tricks, and still haven’t moved the needle. Feeling like a failure 😩
^When the client tries to contradict you^
Anyone else starting to put their foot down with recruiters or am I late to the party🤣? They reach out for an opportunity without client or comp info, and then ask you to run through your resume. Buddy, you reached out to me 🤣
When a former teen celebrity like Screech dies it makes me feel a little old. I know he wasn't the best guy but its sad to be diagnosed with cancer and die 3 weeks later.
Anyone here go to Barry’s? Looking for some friends who will workout with! I go to Lincoln park mostly about 4-5 days a week.
Need like for dm,

Joining kit or any other perks from Wipro?
I was taught a leader “gives credit, takes blame.” But I wish others would as well. It’s depressing to not get credit back for inspiration. Am I petty to hope for acknowledgment, too?
Hello everyone, I am an HR Generalist in the Miami area. I have one formal year of experience in HR, plus 8 years of management experience with plenty of transferable skills. I will be graduating with my MBA with a concentration in HR Management. I’m getting paid $50,000 annually. Is this a fair salary? I feel I am a bit underpaid, especially given the cost of living in Miami. Thanks!
How do you get the free fitbit through EHE? Trying to schedule the annual check up but does not offer anything. There was the same question last week but can not find the thread. Thanks
My toddler (17 months) still isn't walking independently. He walks (even runs) holding onto our finger and gets super anxious when we try to let go. Has anyone else had a similar experience? All his little friends are running around him now and I'm not sure if/when I should be getting worried or if I can do anything to help him.

How does everyone feel about getting random emails from strangers asking you to refer them for a job at your company? I just received an email from someone I never met who applied to a position in my company. In the email he asked me to push his application to HR and a 30 minute call to talk about my experience. I find it a bit off pushy considering I don’t know his qualifications at all. Usually when someone reaches out on LinkedIn I will respond. How do you guys approach this?
How many are planning on leaving consulting because the pandemic made you realize exactly how non-essential our work really is?
A former colleague from some years ago told me my old team was hit by layoffs. Basically all the people I worked with there once upon a time, including a few lifers who were there through '08. Do I reach out and say anything or no?
I'm not in a position to give them any leads since I happen to be looking myself right now, but feels like I should at least offer an ear to listen
Any tips on how to deal with Dominant style personalities? I’m an Influential style personality and work in an environment were bluntness, aggressiveness, etc. are valued and seen as cool as opposed to the warm, empathetic style I prefer to employ. I’m reflexively diplomatic and collaborative but I feel that it comes across as soft and even frowned upon, especially being a man. Am I over-thinking this, or do I simply have to learn to play the “competent asshole” cliche corporate America loves?

Finally admitting to myself that the office is not happening for at least another 6 months. I have a monitor and I’m going to order an office chair this week. What are other things you’ve bought that have made WFH easier?

I have two offers - one in NYC and one that’s in a LCOL area with no income tax - and they both roughly pay the same. The NYC one seems cool and is more well-known - is it worth taking the HCOL for it?

Can a company clawback a sign on bonus from you, even if they place you on a 3 month unpaid leave of absence and you find another job during the unpaid leave? Seems like you could claim an invol
