If this partner would not work with you over your first project as a new attorney, they are not worth worrying about.

In other words, work hard and do your best. This is a lesson you’ll learn many times about time management and what your realistic capacity is. But don’t let it make you miserable. It’s okay to feel bad and then move on.

You will always have redlines. Don’t feel bad. If it was redlines for partner preferences, you’ll learn those in time.

Guilty! Being the interviewee recently has taught me what I failed to do as an interviewer. 1Outline your hiring process/timeline. Simple but oft overlooked. Tell them how many people they’ll be meeting, when u aim to shortlist, when u aim to hire. Communicate- someone is probably intensely waiting for any word. They may miss other opportunities for u. 2 Closure! Surprising how many places don’t let u know when they’ve moved on from u! 3 Can u offer helpful advice for them? 4 Reply to all.

Hi everyone, I have two questions: - In the US, how much importance is placed by MBB on GPA after 3-4 years of work experience? In case of a low GPA, does this weigh a lot or after a while do they almost only weigh work experience? What about for tier 2? - Is it feasible for MBB (or Tier 2)to be hired in the US directly from Europe, or is it better to transfer internally to your own company? Thanks to all

I’m thinking of quitting breastfeeding. My baby is 5 months old, and my pump just broke, and I don’t think she’s eating enough and she wakes up all the time at night hungry. I’m just tired of it. I’d rather just give her bottles and call it a day. Ready for my husband to take the night feeds, ready to be able to have a drink without worrying about when I have to feed the baby. The actual breastfeeding has been easy, which is why I feel guilty for “quitting.”
