Epic job positions. I’ve been a pct and I have customer service experience I currently work as a clinical help desk analyst. I’m having a hard time getting an epic analyst job. The job info says entry level but I’m not being picked up. Does anyone have any tips?
Definitely took the wrong job. I was offered a seriously competitive salary and great benefits to work at a well funded startup, which is great! Turns out the salary and benefits were meant as lowkey bribes to insure I worked at the company without actually doing any work. Every single suggestion I've made has been shut down and I've been ghosted for several meetings with the CEO. What should I do? Just leave?

Are FAANG companies really the place to be for SWE’s? I want to work for one but I’m worried about culture & work/life balance.
Hi boys & girls!
Joined a big firm (Big4) not long a go and starting to feel like I got a good grip on my current work.
I've always been very technical, so I think that the only thing I am missing now is making sales. (I really wanna make partner)
Can any seasoned lawyer share tips and materials (i.e. books) which can help?
Would it be a good idea to join a Social Club where potential clients spend time? (gym/tennis/paddel/events)
Any advice welcome!

Maybe this is the wrong bowl- but I’m going crazy with Microsoft word’s new “save a copy” feature. Is there any way to revert to the classic “save as” function?
I need some words of wisdom from this esteemed bowl. I have been an associate for almost 2 years in civil litigation with my bread and butter being family and marital law. I have the drive and desire to operate a solo practice with an emphasis on family law as that is my most comfortable area. I've been loved by all my clients and believe I have the charisma to attract new ones. It's not a matter of if I'll go solo but when. Any advice and/or potential pitfalls of going solo so soon?

I was offered a partnership at a small firm I used to work at before my current also small firm. We had come to terms and I expected to inform my current firm. To my surprise, my current firm made me a significant offer to stay. Not a partnership, but making more money and better benefits. I’m torn because the other firm is under the impression I’m coming in as a partner. But I can’t turn away from the significant offer I have from my current firm, where I enjoy working. Any advice/thoughts?

Anyone have any experience with a business consultant that specializes in running a solo law firm? If so, how was that experience? Worth it?
Venting… I had a PC reach out last week for services (commercial real estate) who proceeded to tell me that their project is going to make me the “gold standard” , so rich and etc. further they wanted me to send them a plan of everything needed for all the phases of development and an estimated cost. The call completely drained me and rubbed me the wrong way. Then they brought up my age and me being younger, saying it’s an opportunity of a life time. It felt extremely condescending.
Putting in notice today at a very small firm that the owner wished for me to take over one day. It’s time, and it’s complicated, but according to former associates he’s acted completely unreasonable in response to associates leaving. Wish me luck.
How do you keep track of your time when you go solo? Making the transition soon and I'm wondering if I should invest in any specific software.
Hi. I am a co-founder of startup and need some help with doc review and guidance as we move from our friends and family to Series A. This would be for me, not the company. I am based in the Bay Area. Looking for a solo practitioner or small firm, I believe. Any recs? Thanks
I’m an associate attorney at a mid-size family law practice. (5 attorneys, 3 support staff). I’ve been here for 3 years and just asked for a raise to $130k from $90k. My annual billable target is 1400. However, since I’ve been here I’ve barely broken 1000 despite working my ass off. I bill out at $375. They told me no more raises unless I start taking my own cases. Now they just hired a new associate and are paying him $170k and he takes his own cases. Am I being unreasonable asking for $130k?
Anyone use google local service ads. What’s you ad spend per a month and how many clients do you get out of it?
