I’m a second year attorney at a smaller general litigation firm looking to specialize in Labor and Employment law. About 30-40 percent of my workload is EPLI at my current firm. I am currently interviewing at a Big 4 firm. Any advice on interviewing, and hopefully eventually transitioning to the new role? Thanks in advance!

If it’s been 30-40% of your workload for two years, seems like you understand what the work involves, know what you’re getting into, and would enjoy the L&E resources of a big 4. My advice is to have a 2 minute elevator pitch about who you are and what you’re looking for from the job. Be prepared to talk about transferable skills and research/writing ability if you haven’t done any motion practice in your L&E cases. No one expects you to be doing depos two years in, but if you have play it up. Language proficiencies and familiarity with e-discovery platforms are worth mentioning too.

Hi Fishes,
Need advice.
I am currently working at a prod based company as a QA Engineer in a maintenance project. I joined 7 months back. They offerred me an SDET+DevOps role. And all this while I was mostly working on manual. There is no scope and value to automation in this project.

I have an offer from a service based company with 25% hike from my current ctc. They have offered a API automation project.

Is it wise to leave now or should I wait for an year?
