I’m a very experienced veterinary assistant who has been doing this job for about 4 years in total however because of my skill level I would say I am more of an unlicensed technician. I’m looking for input on what I should ask for a raise. Given the minimum wage, I make about $5 over but that hasn’t really changed to match inflation of living, etc and truly feel like I should be making a decent amount more given my skills. Any helpful advice?

Looking at a Facebook people strategy role and wondering if I’d have a higher chance at getting a first round interview if I was referred by a FB recruiter in a different department? I have another friend who is a FB benefits manager but he says 9/10 referrals of his don’t get one. Thoughts?
I have been approached by 3 separate HR people at a startup company to interview for a position. I already have a fulltime job that pays well and I only started 6 months ago too. Anyways, the pay was intriguing and the job was a high level scientific advisor so I did interviews. At the last interview, at the end I was told the job was for management but I prepared for a different kind of interview. I am waiting for an offer or rejection letter. I feel peeved that they wasted my time. Red flags?

Hi all. I finally relatively have inner peace now but I think I should look for a virtual therapist that is well versed in childhood trauma, self parenting, digging out repressed trauma and memories, PTSD and all that jazz.
Preferably female and Chinese American recommendations would be best. I've tried one from BetterHelp, but didn't click and that was a back-end system match, not self selected.
What platforms do you use for therapy that's worked for you?
Real estate / real estate finance associates, is everyone still crazy busy or are you noticing a bit of a slow down? I’m at an Am Law 20 and was crazy this year through most of the summer, but have seen a pull back in workload / deal flow the past few weeks.
I make around 100k a year gross and have about 85k in savings. What do you think I can comfortably afford to buy?

Pros/cons going in-house at a start up?
Billing is about to drive me over the edge. I hate it. I love the law, generally like most aspects of my job, but the billing is awful. I feel super depressed and burnt out because of it. My bills are okay. I just don’t have 8 hours worth of work everyday/when I work for 7 hours on a substantive document I’m exhausted. I don’t know if I can keep this up. Any advice? I have amazing opportunities at my firm so idk if I want to leave but this is awful

Billing question/firm expanded too fast.
Fifth year here. Started at new firm 6 months ago, and they hired 4 people for 2 empty spots (they are expanding). 1800 billing requirement is enforced but there are just days where I'm not busy/billing. I've emailed and gone door to door for work, but I think they expanded too fast and concerned about not hitting minimums. Any advice/similar stories?
Why do the recruiters I work with not respond to my emails? It’s getting ridiculous, and can’t do anything about it if I’ve already sent out applications through them.

I’ve practiced litigation in DC for about 5+ years at a larger plaintiffs’ firm, and am considering a switch to a defense firm. Is there any insight to how many billable hours this would require, and how much time that would actually be? For reference, the firm has a 1900 billable hour requirement and the partner said I would have “no problem” fulfilling that based on the work they have.

I am a new attorney (one year being barred) and I have no confidence when it comes to taking deposition, mainly because English is not my first language. I was taking a deposition last week and the Corp was kind of making fun of me especially when he asked me “what I am asking is a request or demand” and again “what I am asking is a question or an order” I was stunned and didn’t know what to say!
I just need advise from all experienced attorneys how can I improve my deposition taking skills?
How many unread work emails do you have?

Welcome to in-house 😎 I did a couple of hours of work this morning and now I’m catching up on my shows and doing some laundry. Will probably do another hour of work in a few hours.
You guys hiring? 😂
That will change. Work gets to you progressively. Use these early days to dive deep into the culture of your company and learn everything you can about every process and every person that you are helping in your role.
I’m assuming you can study the company online either with a proprietary intranet or other resources? And then setup short video conferences with the various stakeholders.
Maybe they’ll fire you and you’ll get severance ☺️
The problem is I feel insecure with my job security as I don’t feel I’m adding value.
When I started in-house I was told very clearly I was not immediately worth what I was paid. But that the time would come. Your company is making an investment in you. It just doesn’t work that way in private practice.
They need to find you. It will take some time. They didn’t hire you to not work.
I moved in house a few months ago and did about an hour of work on any given day for about a month and took the rest of the time to clean up/organize my investments and retirement accounts. Now, I'm up to about 5 hours of work a day. The work will come but agree with all above comments - in house it takes time for the work to find you
Spend these slow days meeting ppl. I try to meet at least 3 new ppl every week. At least at my company, ppl are pretty receptive to “Hi, I’m new counsel with the X group. I’d like to grab some time on your calendar to introduce myself and learn how I can best support your group.”
In-house work cycles a lot, try and talk to your clients to get a better understanding of the expected workflow for the rest of the year (ex, do they plan to be really busy around Q1 close, are a lot of drafts still out with customers from around the holiday, etc). It will make you feel more comfortable to better understand the business cycle.
In the short term be proactive and offer to help with more admin type projects that usually get pushed off. Contract template updates, process improvements, filing clean up, compiling onboarding resources. Your boss will love you.
Where are you guys working at? I'm in biotech and it is no fun
Busy busy busy busy 🐝🐝🐝🐝
In house is up and down. There are days when I feel like I don’t add a ton of value, and days where I feel like I’m making up for those other ones.
I just started in-house a few weeks ago and my days are like 8-12 hrs just learning the company, meeting people, and attending company committee meetings (we actually are encouraged to attend!). Slowly being ramped onto actual work. There is so much to do to learn a company! If you can access it, read corporate history and background, compliance policies, commercial agreements, product materials, competitor info, etc. Talk to different attorneys and non-attorneys to learn about the business. I’m having a blast doing it at a leisurely pace. And I hope it’ll pay dividends once work ramps up.
