Hi all, I’m currently on F-1 grace period in the country and have an approved COS H-1B effective 10/1/21. Does anyone know if I can continue to invest (Roth IRA, brokerage, crypto) during this period? TIA!

Next week I’m having my first lateral interview as a junior associate. I’m very nervous because the group with whom I’m interviewing works with life science/tech clients and the attorneys have strong science/tech backgrounds; and I do not. However, I am very, very interested in transitioning to this practice. And I reaaally want this job because it’s at my dream firm. How would you recommend preparing for the lateral interview?

Interviewing and they want examples of my previous work. I have some examples that were shared with general public, but my best work was for specific clients. Realize this might be a dumb question, but have never been asked this before. To create a deck as part of an interview exercise, sure - but not providing actual deliverables. Any advice?
