Law

Just gave my two weeks at my first job out of law school after seven months. I hated the work so I’m relieved but nervous for the future.

You’ll land on your feet. I did the same after 6 months. Good luck.

Public interest law is one area of law needing bright energetic people. “Public interest lawyers and non-lawyers provide legal services to individuals, groups, and organizations that are historically unrepresented in society. Studies show that about 80% of the legal needs of the poor in the United States remain unmet, despite existing federal, state and volunteer programs that provide legal services to low-income people.” (Thebalancecareers.com) In the program I work in, my coworkers are dedicated to the cause and compassionate towards those in our community who need legal help.

May we ask, will it be solo practice from here? Or another firm in a different area of law? Best wishes for the days ahead!

Not solo practice! I still have so much to learn before I could take that on. I honestly don’t know yet...I feel like I just keep learning what I don’t want to do rather than what I do, but I know this time around I’ll be much more selective about my choice and set boundaries from the beginning. Thanks for the best wishes and you too!

This pandemic has been bad. Disrupted (prevented) exercise routine due to living circumstances and health reasons, my interpersonal skills at work have been dulled significantly. Like everyone else, there was a lot of disappointment with raises, promos etc. I'm on rejection number 17 for exit opps in the last three months as of today. I feel like a broken person. So much stress would be relieved with a new role and a little raise. What's next?

For benchmarking I think it’d be helpful for all on here to see starting comp. (undergrad or MBA) at top consulting firms: Firm: Base salary: Total possible per. bonus: Profit share: 401K:

So, I’m currently interviewing for new job, and market is not bad, but I’m anxious and I am interviewing for every opportunity that comes my way (director/vp level, tech). Today, September 30 I received an invite for an initial interview for another opportunity. So I applied to this opportunity through networking on August 10 (!). It looks like a red flag for me and I’m thinking thankyounext, but again it’s covid time... Thoughts?

If you're getting laid off, do you think the firm will allow you to "stay employed" and let you take your pto instead of paying in out just so it gives you time to find a job while "still employed"?

Honestly so sick of recruiters, I had someone tell me that most people leave public accounting for less money than they made in audit.... so let me get this straight, we work hard for 2-3 years so that we can find a job that pays less? I’m a early promo to senior asking for 90k (5k jump from what I would have made if this was a normal year)
