Hi ladies, its my first time posting here but thought I'd ask for some advice on this. am a beginner UXer with a design education background. I just got a job as UI Designer. I am super anxious. I am good at research to wireframing. But UI, never done it before... high fid, design systems etc are all so new to me. This is making me so insecure getting into the new job what if I make a fool of myself? What if I ruin projects and real client work? Should be excited but can't stop overthinking.

I’m a dilemma , I joined DUSI in May and it’s been just 3 months . The project I work in has no process at all and it’s all haywire here .

Bank of America is offering me Manager position with 30% hike . Would it be a good idea to leave Deloitte ? My YOE is 8 years

Any tips on how to keep my plate full with work? I just moved from civil legal services to Biglaw as a staff attorney (9 YOE), and I’m looking for strategies on how to get work from partners. They know I’m new and I have gotten some matters to work on, but I find myself out of billable work by the afternoon (and today, by 10am). I check in with different people each day to ask if there are things I can work on, but what else can I be doing (that isn’t going to annoy the shit out of ppl)? TIA!

That moment when your "smart" plan to boost your hours this month by working the Labor Day weekend (thus turning down all the fun plans your friends made) becomes sitting on your hands & feeling dumb because all the partners are too busy to delegate anything.

How do my fellow litigators deal with hearings that don’t go so well? Whether you fumble over your words, don’t make all the points you wanted to make, or the judge is annoyed and/or gives a bad ruling, etc. I just had a hearing this morning where the judge granted my motion but only after acting annoyed and coming very close to denying it. Now I am replaying in my head what I could’ve done differently and kind of beating myself up. Does this happen to any anyone else?

I am a post bar graduate and currently seeking employment. I did not graduate from a top tier school, but I did graduate in the top third of my class as a dual-degree graduate. About a week ago, a partner at a big law firm connected with me on LinkedIn. He asked if I had a job lined up. I told him no and he responded that I should let him know if there is anything his firm or he can do to help me. We have a meeting with each other in two weeks. Is this a big law opportunity?

Part of it depends on your firm politics. If you think it’s acceptable to you to reach out to other partners for work I’d do that. If you’re unsure then I wouldn’t any chances until you talk to other colleagues and get the lay of the land.
Best things I can think are to be totally on top of a file the minute you get it so you build up a bit of a credit when things get slow. As soon as you get the file work it up to every last detail. Predicting when the work comes can be next to impossible but some clients will assign cases on a rotating basis between the firms. If you get the work directly from a partner, maybe you can check to see in casual convo with them like “oh yeah it’s great working on this new case but it seems like it came out of the blue. Do they follow a schedule in assigning cases?”
If the work is just coming straight to you with no oversight or it’s your client I’d reach out and simply ask for the opportunity to handle more work (politics permitting of course)
I hope that helps in some small way but trust me the feast and famine thing is totally normal.
