I want to get out of ID for two reasons the work is not challenging and I am very underpaid for a 7th year associate. I do not see a clear path to advancing at my firm. I clerked for a superior court judge in NJ for ny first year out of law school. Is it too late to change areas of law? I would like to find an associate position in employment and commercial litigation. Is employment getting hot due to covid?

I don’t understand what to do to lose weight. F/30 years old. From 18-27 I did all the diets (OMAD, keto, IF, only eating 1200-1300/day with workouts 5-7x/wk) before realizing it was f’ing up my relationship with food. Switched to weight lifting, mindful eating w/balanced plates the past 3 yrs but gained all the weight I’d lost with the diets + some. I’ve returned to calorie counting (though staying above 1400) and I’m within 10lb of my goal but my progress yo-yos each week. Feel discouraged 😞

Additional Posts in Ask A Recruiter - Law

Anyone have tips for asking for more than you think you're worth? Because of the employment market there's a job which is about a 20K jump for me but it's been open for a year so I'm pretty sure I can get something additional out of them. Would it be appropriate to ask for 10K above the jump? Or should I just count my blessings and leverage my ability to underprice other applicants
