Or be the last man standing and become partner with all former colleagues as clients 😉 you're either cut out for this work or you aren't. Follow the reasons that are right for you.

I had a call with a team member for a position I'm in the interview process for (soon to have a call with the recruiter). The person seemed passive aggressive during the call and hung up on me before I was able to say thank you for his time or bye. I didn't have my interview yet but I was told that this call is known to the team and the recruiter. Does it seem like I bombed the interview before even having the interview since it didn't end on a good note?

Seeking some legal advice: under the current travel restrictions, is there any way to get my parents to enter the country and visit? I am a German with permanent residency and they would only come here on ESTA. Reason is that my child will be born soon and I really want my parents to visit as early as possible. I heard under special circumstances immediate family would be eligible for a National Interest Exception but the event probably won’t qualify them. Any tips?

Currently a local gov lawyer (was a prosecutor before that). Live in a small market where government contractors are the big employer for the community.

Sometimes I think about leaving for this. No loans, will never do big law. Just tired of not being able to buy a decent house. Am I crazy?

People who have boomeranged or are familiar with the process,
how do you actually boomerang?
Particularly interested in knowing the following:
-Is there a formal process (at your firm or in general)?
-Do you need to be at a particular level/have a certain amount of years of experience at the firm?
-Do you need to be above a certain performance rating?
-Any other prerequisites to qualify?
-Would you know if you have the offer to boomerang prior to leaving your firm or only after leaving?
