Just relax and take a deep breath, figuratively speaking. You realistically have 35+ years left in your career, don't worry too much about what you do in your 20s.

Hmm I like corp strategy / marketing strategy!

Think about the trajectory you want to go in. Not everything will happen in one step. Just make sure you do a good job and you will be recommended in the things you want to do.

How to handle recruiting burn-out? I’ve been actively searching for a new role for a little over a year now (obviously this is parallel to the pandemic). Any advice on how to go forward? I’ve had a few final rounds, but no offers or couldn’t get there on comp. I know applying online is likely to not yield anything, but cold e-mails are only marginally more effective.

Jumped from biglaw pship to join ~$2B company <12 mo ago. Pitch was to come grow into GC role and have strategic seat at table.

Has killed long-term appeal of this gig. Trying to figure out next steps (stay a while, jump to another in-house gig, go back to private practice) and any advice appreciated.

I am looking to gain certification or other credentialing in diversity and inclusion, not only because it would look good on my resume both for future job-search purposes and also to become better educated in this area, which is growing in importance. I looked at SHRM's "Inclusive Workplace Culture Specialty Credential" and got a bit of "sticker shock" at the cost - $1,655.00 for members. Does anyone have other suggestions on training/credentialing in this area?

Does higher vault ranking (v10-30 compared to v80-100) open more doors for corporate in-house opportunities for a senior associate? If chambers practice area rankings and expected billable hours are similar and they offer the same DPW pay scale, does it matter less? Is it better to stay at/lateral to a firm where you might be able last longer to learn the necessary skills? Any personal anecdote or advice would be appreciated. Thank you.
