I’ve always gotten the advice that when you want to switch jobs you should take interviews from places you’re not actually interested in, so you can understand your value in the market and have better negotiating power.
I’m doing that rn - took a couple interviews to gauge my skills, my market value, and see what I need to work on for interviews that I actually care about.
However, I feel really guilty about wasting their time and going all the way knowing I’ll just say no at the end. Wwyd?

But today I’ve received a message that a box of chocolate is on the way from KGS and will be delivered tomorrow.
Should I keep it or deny since I won’t be joining?
PS: The order contains only chocolates but not the laptop and other joining kit. 😁
So I'm trying to handle this maturely even though I feel like yelling at someone - how do you handle saying "no" to someone asking your parents to marry you, even when you have made it clear to them that you're not interested a long time ago? I feel like this person is sneaking "behind my back" going straight to my parents - not how it works anymore..at least for me. Thoughts/advice?

Need advice! Context: Make 160k in LCOL area, 28M. Living at home with no rent and paid off car for last 3 years. Monthly expenses add up to 1500, invest/save about 8K a month. At a point where I’d like to move out, I’ve been living at home because it’s mutually beneficial to my elderly parents and me. We get along really well and I help them, they help me. My car with 180k miles recently broke down. I would like to move out and also finally buy a nicer car.
Anyone had luck moving from supply chain consulting to either strategy or more investment based roles (banking, venture capital)

I started a new job in a new state in April. I never met my staff before SAH orders and I still have not. My work relies heavily on trusting my paralegal to complete tasks and work as a team. A few months in, started noticing that she wasn’t getting to my work quickly and prioritizing my male/senior coworker over my work. Then she started the insubordination, telling me how to do my job. Things came to a head when another attorney noticed similar behavior and we were instructed by HR to (cont)
I’m a first year associate. I billed 240+ every month this year, and I’ve officially hit 300 for the month of May. I’m starting to feel kind of worn out. How do I bounce back?
Do you accept social media requests from coworkers? I have a fake Instagram name but was somehow still found. I don’t want to burn any bridges by not accepting, but I’d like to post pictures in swimsuits and other non-work appropriate things. Obviously nothing too explicit or anything overly provocative, but like swimsuit pics, dress pics, drinks with friends pics, things that are decent but not very work appropriate
Started a new job and still feel like I have no idea what I’m doing. I don’t know how to fix it and am scared I won’t catch on

My vertigo has been rendering me useless for a week now. I'm struggling to bill hours and turn in assignments. I'm a first year so I'm worried about how the seniors and partners I work with will take my performance this past week. I'm trying my best but it's honestly hard to sit thru meetings when I can barely write (my handwriting gets visibly worse when my vertigo is acting up) or focus on a task. It's taken me 6 min just to type this post!

An equity partner who I’ve never worked with before asked me if I had time to help him with an assignment. I told him I would be glad and willing to assist next week but he then clarified he needed the assignment done within the next day or two. He then asked me what assignments I was currently working on so I listed everything on my plate. He then acknowledged how busy I was and later asked who I was working with on a particular project so I told him. I never heard back. I then heard (cont’d)..
Anyone use a legal staffing agency to find a job and was it worth it? Currently employed 3+ years at a private firm but looking to relocate to be closer to family.
I got a really sweet email from OC (female) today after settling a case, thanking me and my supervisor (who also happens to be a female) for being reasonable and cooperative, while still strongly advocating for my clients. I get the billable requirement, I get that the profession is naturally adversarial, but this email gives me hope that just maybe a tide is turning in this profession, especially as more women join. Would love to hear more stories like this.

Would you change practice areas to get great female mentorship? I am a few years in and love my practice area, but have not succeeded in getting the mentorship I need (from either men or women). I now have an offer to join a practice group at another firm with an extraordinary woman at the helm who is a strong personality match & wants to "develop" and coach me. I'm torn because I want to work with her, but I don't know if I'll like the new area of the law as much as my current practice.
