Please let me know of your experiences; I’m starting work when baby will be 4 months.
I’d like to apologize to my parent’s neighbors and anyone else that heard me screaming like a lunatic at my dog.

Saw a job posting for a new dept in a company I want to work for-I am shallowly acquainted with the owner from 15yrs ago and we have messaged each other 2x on LinkedIn over the years. He is a multi billionaire. I am thinking about reaching out to him to ask about the department with the intent to be considered for hire.

Hey fellow attorneys! I am a second year attorney who has recently accepted a job within a firm that I am absolutely ecstatic about. However, my first year of practice was highly supervised and I was given no cases of my own (Always worked the cases with major supervision and micromanaging by partners in my previous firm). I am worried about being able to do solo cases individually and whether I know enough to be in charge of cases. Anyone else experienced this? Or have any advice? Thank you!
