Generally okay if it makes sense (e.g. change of practice area, left with a supervising partner/ practice, went clerking, went in-house).

It will always look bad to some uptight people, but don’t worry about them.

If you can explain it, and there's a need, don't worry too much. But this market won't last forever, and if there's no need or you don't have a good reason, it can look bad.

Job hopping is totally fine, ideally you have stays of at least 2 to 3 years per role.

And, if possible, leave each position for a progressively better title each time (e.g. manager, senior manager, associate director...).

Depends how long you stayed each place and if there were clear upward progressions or same job at the same pay range in the same markets. Usually try not to start looking until 1.5-2 years if you can.

Started an in-house job after leaving a firm. I love it. Looking back on my old job, I now realize how gaslighted and manipulated I was. People at the new job treat me with such respect, it feels amazing (also sad that my bar is now so low).

Do people really ever get jobs through cold interviews from job postings? I’ve been trying it for years, done alot of third-round interviews and such, all generally positive experiences, but every job I’ve ever landed has involved a personal recommendation, warm intro, or someone I’ve worked with at a previous role or as a competitor, etc. A fair number of the jobs I’ve notice go “unfilled” with postings remaining up for months or years after.
