I interviewed with the hiring manager on Monday and she really liked me and I liked her. On Tuesday I interviewed with the VP who is my bosses boss. That same day, I interviewed with the CMO. I was very tired at that point since it was 8:30 pm and then had been interviewing all day with this company and several others. The thing that threw me off was that the CMO seemed cold and she wouldn’t take off her her COVID mask. Not sure why since she was the only one in the room. Is this a red flag?

Any advice on landing a firm job after 4 years of a federal clerkship? It was originally a 2 year but I extended due to Covid.

Interviewers seem very confused by the length of the clerkship even though I explain that my judge asked me to stay and I didn’t really want to test the market in April of 2020. Just not sure if the concern is about money or something else.

How much do you work out a week to cut? I was reading a bunch of articles that said 6x/week (3x weight, 3x cardio). Pre-covid I did 5-7x/week and wasn’t seeing great results. During lockdown to pre-cutting, I did 2-4x + walks/hikes on weekends. I find by workout day 5/6, my body feels so fatigued, I either skip or switch out a weight day and do restorative yoga/another LIDL cardio day instead. Today was my 6th workout (jumprope tabata) and I could barely do it which then just feels pointless.
