New job is pressing me to start 10/25. Old job is screwed/burned bridges if I don’t stay until 11/5. We have an SEC filing due 11/5 and I do the SEC reporting.
Can I suggest to the new gig working both jobs for those 2 weeks? They can send me a laptop and I can deal with onboarding/system access/intro calls while wrapping up lose ends with my old gig and ending on a high note.
Is this a weird thing to propose?

What’s the best social management tool for LinkedIn? I’m doing B2B social and majority of our audience/interaction comes from LinkedIn. Is there any platform that gives you a leg up? I did a demo w Oktopost but I don’t really think it’s worth the expense for what it does.

I’m an in-house lawyer with two years of post JD experience. I’ve graduated from a top Canadian school (if that matters). My work is focused on regulations within the capital markets.

I don’t mean to be vague but does anyone have experience or insights on if things are “better” as a black person working as a consultant or in house somewhere rather than in an agency? Any POV is helpful. For background I currently work at Ogilvy in a pretty junior role and I see NO ONE that looks like me. Peers or at the top aside from those in HR/diversity and in addition to dealing with the day to day reality of being a POC in corporate America, its hard to visualize a path to “the top”.
Pandemic life or associate life? You decide

Padding my billable hours like
I’m depressed. Nothing unique about my depression - I’m in big law, my career defines me, when I’m not working I can’t find the will to get off the couch, I’m sad or I’m numb…I know I’m the only one that can make a change to my life…I’m on antidepressants. Just extremely unmotivated and paralyzed. Self-help books are not for me, but I am curious - has anyone tried a guided depression/anxiety journal? Any recommendations if so? Or, if you have experienced the same, what steps did you take?
