Campus recruiters: I am not a premium employer on Handshake but I want to host a multi-school virtual info session. Can’t I use the same link for a Teams meeting (or Zoom or whatever) and request events at each of the schools I’m targeting? I know that’s a lot of manual work to set up the individual school events but is there any reason that wouldn’t work? It’s been a while since I’ve had to do this and I don’t want to have to re-do anything and look messy! Thanks for any tips in advance!

I was offered an amazing job that I’m super excited about. I’m waiting for the background check to clear before I give notice. I’ve been told background checks are taking forever right now.

I’m trying to get an idea for what I should propose for my start date…I really want to have some extended time off before I start.
Was talking to a friend at a firm that’s hiring Australian attorneys because of need. He was frustrated because one of them is very young (23 or something) and doesn’t really know anything (and my friend is annoyed that he’s getting paid the same as US first years who my friend says know a lot more). Are firms really hiring newly qualified attorneys from Australia with just an LLB as associates now or is this just some fluke?
Told a pushy recruiter that the role they wanted me for wasn’t what I was looking for, and they sent me a calendly link to find a time to discuss other roles.
