If I want to leave after 2/28, do I need to be interviewing now? I'm getting a bit nervous after hearing other people talk about PIPs and being let go after the firm has used you up...

Well, if your performance improves, you're not let go. i had an associate last busy season who was on a PIP. Turned out they were a fantastic associate who had just never gotten on a team that put in the time to train them. I recognized their past poor performance was the firm's failure, pointed this out to leadership and now they're on track for promotion again.

Yes. Start now. Took me 2 months between getting laid off and finding my next job. If you get lucky you can always tell your new employer you can't start until march 1

@EY1, I got put on a PIP last year and got off it, but I suspect from recent layoff threads that my head would be first on the chopping block. The threads I'm referring to are people who were put on one that conveniently coincides with their client's SEC filing date.

I would start to put feelers in now. The whole process took me about 1.5 months while I was currently working

So if you get out on a PIP, you are definitely getting fired after busy season?

That's rare

Pips??? What's that

Performance improvement plan

Yes, start looking now. The process can take a while especially if you are picky on your next opportunity. It took me about 3 months

Yes!!! Start early,bro!

My fabulous legal assistant is leaving at the end of the year to focus on her mayoral campaign. I live in a very rural area & there are no legal assistants around. Everyone applying have just worked at hospital as assistants. I don’t have time to hold their hand. I need someone running from the start. My friend moved back to the area and she is interested in becoming a paralegal. Any tips/suggestions on what sites, online education, etc to refer her to. I’m at the point of hiring a virtual asst.
