Hi everyone! I’ve been in the middle of interviews but there are some processes I’ve stopped particularly because I noticed that there were barely any women at the firm or when I asked questions about how they handle cases of sexual harassment I wasn’t a huge fan of the answers. I’m trying to be especially careful before I make a switch! Do any of you have insights on whether the work environment for women is inclusive at Kearney? I haven’t met a woman in my interviews yet.

Looking for some honest feedback on my resume. I currently have a job, but not the happiest place I have ever worked. I have been applying to positions since I started working there almost 5 yrs ago, but I never seem to get interviews with the positions I feel I would do extremely well at. I’m not the best at “selling my work” so thinking it might have to do with my resume. Would appreciate any pointers
Just passed the phone interview for a non-tech Program Manager role at Amazon. Up for the loop next week and I need help! Any tips? Also, this is for an L5 role and i think they may be low-balling me. This will be an onsite role and it would take me an hour to get to the office everyday. Also, I live in Southern Cali so gas prices are gonna kill me.

Does anyone have any tips for teachers who push in upon returning to in-person/hybrid instruction? I would be pushing into 7 classrooms. I teach ESL.
We just had a new associate start today. They are still on their old biglaw firm’s website. As someone who was previously let go (and has had friends let go), I know what this means. PSA to people who were laid off/fired, remember to let your old firm know when you’re starting at your new firm so it isn’t so obvious that you were let go. I don’t judge people for being let go, but many people are not as friendly/kind.

Can anyone recommend an app or software for tracking billable hours to make it easier to put together and submit timesheets? I work for a small firm and all of our billing/invoicing is done manually. Every couple of weeks I go through my notes to type up my timesheets and I’m wondering if there’s an app that can record my time as I work and then put that all together categorized by client to submit for invoicing. I don’t need to note how much a particular client pays per hour.
