Does Accenture allow remote work from a different country for a few days to a couple weeks?
Hey ladies 👋
A few weeks ago, I shared how hard it was for me to land interviews despite sending tons of InMails on LI, networking, and applying. I made new connections off of 1 post on Fishbowl which is AMAZING! 👏 I haven't gotten any offers yet, but I'm optimistic that the right opportunity is around the corner. 🤞🏽
I'm making another post because I was inspired by others generosity in reaching out to help. Tell me what you're looking for and drop you LI url.

When you are complimented for your work, how do you respond? Do you feel the random pressure to respond with a compliment?
Do you have a recommendation of trainings or books that help to improve verbal communication skills?
Happy Indigenous People's Day! Let's hope none of the brands we work for make an embarrassing and money-grabbing attempt at celebrating today! Here's to no cringe "we see you" emails and instead just sending out donation links for Indigenous People's causes!
Anyone else excited to have a few days break from work to focus on arguing about vaccine mandates and the relative severity of omicron? Also think I’ll have time to see family.

I‘m a lawyer turned recruiter in NYC -i work w/ top US firms. I see excellent attorneys fail to advocate for themselves in years 3-5. Lots of opportunity then. And if you’re unhappy, try a new spot.

Any tips on how to keep my plate full with work? I just moved from civil legal services to Biglaw as a staff attorney (9 YOE), and I’m looking for strategies on how to get work from partners. They know I’m new and I have gotten some matters to work on, but I find myself out of billable work by the afternoon (and today, by 10am). I check in with different people each day to ask if there are things I can work on, but what else can I be doing (that isn’t going to annoy the shit out of ppl)? TIA!
Can we talk about the lawyering in the Johnny Depp v. Amber Heard trial?
I can’t be the only following this case incessantly….
I recently started working at a firm that does a lot of legal aid. In order to attract more private clients, they want us to go out and do speaking engagements and volunteer work (on our own time). Furthermore, they started asking us to consider doing per diem duty counsel work to bring up our receivables (aka- work as duty counsel and give them our pay). I was so appalled by this comment, I’m beyond livid. I became an associate so I didn’t have to go out and bring in business. (Cont.)

Actually just curious what about firm life do you think would cure the lack of motivation? The characteristics about firm life that I would think as possibly motivating are (a) da money and (b) maybe the diversity of clients that keep it interesting. Nevertheless, I think a lot of people at firms end up doing the same thing over and over even if it's for different people. Whereas I see in house as an opportunity to be more in control of decision making and more personal investment in the outcomes which sounds more intrinsically motivating than the many clients option.
Disagree with MD above bc I get excellent advice from outside counsel and access to tons of free CLE from in house that gives me an even broader view. I'm corporate.
This always depends where you are and what your practice area is....
I would literally cut off a limb to put an end to the misery of billing. It's always tough doing the reverse of the norm, but not impossible. My office recently brought back a former Partner who went in house for 5 years. From what I gather, there must have been some implied understanding that he would being his former employer on as a client. Aside from this type of situation, recruiters will be reticent to bring on an in house, especially one without an established history of law firm practice.
Sounds like you'd do well in real estate or construction law. I negotiate contracts for large developments, and those issues come up all the time.
What kind of stuff do you do? Corporate, employment, IP?
A3 - sure thing! Feel free to PM me. Since I made this post I’m now at a firm doing real estate for renewables so I made the transition! Happy to chat whenever you’d like.
