Hi! I posted this in the in house bowl, but figured I would post here, too. I’m LGBTQIA+ & an in house attorney in a red state. I am desperately seeking a relocation after a handful of anti-LGBTQIA+ bills have been introduced, & some even signed into law in my state. Despite my efforts, I cannot seem to get a recruiter to work with me or any companies outside my state to even consider me. I’m applying to jobs for which my experience is a match, & I’m being looked over. Any advice on relocation?

Can you get licensed elsewhere? That may be the impediment


Sure! I would file for reciprocity or even take another bar, but without knowing I have a job, it’s hard to decide which state to do that in.


Will your company let you work remote from another state?

Unfortunately, no.

Year and experience? I’m an in house recruiter (internal not placement) I might be able to give guidance.

5 years total, 3 in litigation, 2 in house. Any info helps!

Are you looking to go in house somewhere else or back to a firm? I know my firm and lots of others are looking for strong mid-level associates with experience so I would think you could get traction.

Very fair. Billing and bills are the worst!


Where do you want to go?

My sights have been on Washington, Washington D.C., or Colorado, but I am open to most any coastal city!

Hola everyone,
I have 1.5years of experience in Angular and recently i started looking for job opportunities. I was hoping that it will take 2-3 months at least to find a job opportunity and then when i serve 90 days notice period then I'll have around 2years of experience. But i got an offer letter in the first company i interviewed at and they are offering 80% hike.
I think i still have many things to learn and i can do it in my current company. Now should i accept that offer letter or reject

I’m interviewing for jobs that would essentially lead to a minor career pivot. I have gotten to 4 straight final rounds (4-5 interviews and a presentation for each company) to be told I’m second choice in favor of someone with more experience. I’m losing my mind and so tired of interviewing tbh. What can I do differently, or do I just need to chill out and wait for a company to say yes?

This is a legit question so don’t hate me just trying to understand if it’s worth it or not. What is the draw of applying to M7? I understand elite status, but based on research the median total comp for an M7 grad is 185k as of 2020 study (2019 data) and the average age of the students in these programs is 27/28. I know going to MBB they have pretty specific comp coming out for M7 grads but outside of those three firms, what is the draw? Trying to justify spending 200k for a degree.

Hey everyone please consider this as my Hail Mary.
My notice period got over a month ago.
I resigned from the service based company i was working in because at the time I had an offer. They later mentioned that the offer is contingent on the fact that I get an early release from the 90 days NP, which didn't happen and they ghosted me.
I feel utterly helpless. I have been applying and getting shortlisted almost everywhere but nothing has panned out.
