I’m new to the firm and have A LOT of downtime. I will get a report to do and finish it within the next day or two and then get nothing for DAYS. Is this normal? Will this change? I mean…it’s definitely nice but I want to stay billable and keep my job lol. Any insight?

Better than many of the projects I have seen. 10 hours a day for 6-7 days a week.

This sounds like a great time to ask your direct report for more work/ownership or to get into some firm initiatives


Network with people. Try to do firm initiatives and upskill yourself with certifications and trainings that interest you


Shhh 🤫 you found the dream role most of us pray for 😍


I’ve seen so many people get staffed on easy projects and not even bother to seek additional work. They’re just billing full time hours cause that’s how they were staffed so unless you do something particularly bad they’re not gonna fire you. But it’s up to you to use the time to your advantage as others mentioned. Network, firm initiatives, certifications etc.

Received a verbal job offer on Tues. $5k short of what I had said was my desired range but still up from my current salary. We set up a call for Thurs to discuss further. On Wed they sent me all benefits info. Thursday on the call I asked if we could either increase moving stipend or get closer to my desired salary. They said no, and I asked them to send over written offer and I would let them know by Fri. They then email they are no longer offering me the position and repost it the next day:

Applied here and interviewed (presumably to the final round) and didn’t end up with an offer, I think due to the specific experience I’ve had so far. I want to definitely try again in the future when I get more experience. Is there a specific grace period that is ideal? Would this look bad if I apply again since I’ve been rejected before?
