How do I get in contact with a headhunter? Or at least get on their radar. I’m at a boutique firm in Upstate New York with 2.5 years experience including litigation, medical depositions, appellate briefs and a pending brief before the Court of Appeals. I would prefer to move laterally into either a legal research position or litigation associate role in the NYC area. Appreciate any insight or feedback.

Well I'm a first time mom and feel home bound running the baby cycles. My baby is not a good sleeper so I feel like I am on 24/7. When he is a asleep in doing the usual bottles, dinner etc. I feel like I need more confidence to get myself and baby out of the house with everything in tow but I suppose walking through malls could help.

I also do the night cycles solo so I'm pretty much too exhausted to do anything but want to get more scheduled about it so I can plan on an hour here and there when my husband gets home.
