I might need to term an employee for performance (located in CA).

It will be my first time terminating someone, let alone doing this virtually. Any advice?

Hi all! Never been to a wedding before and had a question about gifts: was told it’s best to gift a cheque even if there is a registry. If so what is the amount you’d go for? $100-150 range? This is from a guest perspective (not in wedding party).
Also separate question but if you’re going as a +1 do you contribute a gift as well? Or should only the invited guest be giving a gift?
Thank you all for your help!!
Do you care? First year corporate associate and I don't care about practicing law in the slightest. I wake up, collect my paycheck, go to bed; rinse and repeat. I say no to a lot and delegate to secretaries and paralegals but still on pace for 1900-2000 hours (not that it matters as a first year).

Had the most bizarre recruiting experience. I turned down a role with a smaller consulting firm (have to focus on my health for a while so the timing isn't right for me). I explained this to the recruiter and he seemed to understand & even offered to pick up the convo once I was ready (in a few weeks).
A few mins go by and he tells me another recruiter wants a quick 5 mins with me. Weird, I think, since I've turned them down. But sure, call me at 9 am tomorrow.

I feel like my current title (Implementation Leader) is not attractive to recruiters even though my responsibilities are similar to what an internal consultant would do. Ex.Operational Performance Improvement, Execution on Business Transformation Initiatives, and Analytics. My employer does not have consultants so there is no “Consultant” title. I’m thinking of asking my boss to change my title, but not sure what title to suggest? Any ideas please? What title captures the above responsibilities?
