I'm pitch hitting in a court set, med mal, discovery status conference. I've not appeared in court since I was sworn in and I'm barely familiar with the case. The partner on the case was no help when I asked him what I should expect.

Not really luxury, but what do y'all think of bronze dive watches?
I think it might be a fad, and wouldn't spend much on one, but I'm loving this one with the teal face.
I’m looking for a roommate starting 3/1. I live in a BEAUTIFUL home in the loop with the view of the lake. You’d have your own spacious bedroom and bathroom. The home is completely furnished so you don’t need to buy any furniture. My one request is that as a vegetarian, I’m looking for someone who is also vegetarian/vegan or someone who will not cook or eat meat at home. I’m happy to share pictures and more details on rent.

For EY if the recruiter is coming back to you to add your social/ fill out a tax credit survey can you assume that those steps are good? Usually give my social for background screening
Need some help. I got a letter in mail that my car had a recall for ABS and I should contact the closest dealer to fix the issue. Contacted a dealer and said, yeah it's an issue but a remedy hasn't been placed. So I just have to use my car as is. Is that normal response? If the remedy isn't in place why would the company send me a letter informing of the same? Do you think they just to avoid another fix? Should I contact another dealership? Thanks in advance! I have a Hyundai Tucson.

What are some ways that you build authentic and strong relationships with older male senior clients...sometimes my check-in calls feel so unnatural...even though we had a great professional rapport during delivery?
Things that helped me to increase the women's level of interest-
- Dress in clothes that fit: makes a ton of difference. Follow a few influencers on Instagram if you need help with styling
- good haircut : spend some 💵 on a good hairdresser
- stop giving a fuck and caring about everything. Except for your career. Work your ass off and get a career with a fancy title and money
- be good at listening. Women love to talk and appreciate a good listener

Hi, what is the upper limit for Senior Engineer post at nagarro? Please mention technology as well like .net or data scientist or Java developer.....
I wanted to know if anyone was having issues with their pharma branded Instagram accounts? My brand’s account was fine yesterday and now when you search it it’s not on IG. It’s a business account so it’s fully public. I reached out to a few brand managers and it’s hit or miss on if they’re brand is found. Cleared caches, incognito browser, and all. I’m not sure if IG is down or if something changed with IG and pharma accounts.
Hey! I just got an offer for a L6 position at Amazon but compensation is below my current salary. Any advice on how to negotiate? Base salary is ok but the gaps are 1. The variable and 2. The sign in bonus is only a 1/3 of my non vested stock. Thanks!!!

Should you specialize early and aggressively? As a general litigator (2nd year), I worry that I am not specializing. All advice for building a book of business, whether in big law or a small firm, suggests that focusing on a niche industry or practice area is the credited advice. My mentor advises building technical litigation skills and then finding a specialization around 5th year or so. But who will pay that 5th year rate to “learn” a new area of law? Cont.

I recently joined a firm doing general lit. The position was marketed as a match to my skill set. I’m doing nothing related my strengths and I’m languishing intellectually and professionally. In 12 months I’ve gone from loving law to wanting to quit the law altogether. I don’t have a book at all because my network consists of broke millennials and the pandemic makes it hard. Marketing told me the areas I want to practice aren’t big money makers. How can I find a better match?
I’m currently in the Workers’s comp defense department at a medium-large firm (just over 100 attorneys with five offices), which has a full General Liability department that practices med mal, pi, premises liability etc. But I’m worried that I’ll be pigeonholed and unable to do another area of ID like med mal which really interests me. Should I consider leaving if I don’t think I want to do WC forever? Been here for just a couple months so far.
6th year associate. I’m in the weird position where partners bring me in on big cases and expect me to do it all myself. I’m expected to act like a partner but also get their approval on every little decision. And also I can’t bring in a newer associate because I’m the associate, even through I’m technically by myself. Trying a case in June and I’m pretty sure the partner doesn’t even know what it’s about, yet he loves to critique every decision I make.
Any insight into Kobre & Kim?
