Just got laid off. I’m a privacy attorney with 7 YOE. Market looks bleak. Anyone have any leads?

:( sorry to hear - good luck 💐

Meta? It’s not as bleak as you think. And since you’re Meta you can be vocal about the layoff, you don’t have to hide it. Depending on location you want to start applying. Just grind out the applications. Lots of places are hybrid now but you’ll be ok. Where are you? (Also not a headhunter so unfortunately can’t place you that way, just giving advice)

You’re right. But you’re coming from Meta. You have the pedigree. And it’s been a week. The job search is a soul sucking grind but you gotta keep your head up. And flex. Your. Network. That gets you above the fray of everyone looking.

I’m glad there’s finally a list like this. But it’s so obvious these were done by PR people at agencies because of the blatant display of Titleism. Show me a list of 40 over 40 of people voted on by their peers or others in the industry. The ones that are crushing it but either didn’t get the fancy title or turned down the title because they also want work-life balance.

Additional Posts in F50 In-House Counsel

I do not have a single recognizable company or law firm or school on my resume. I’m from a boutique IP firm and now starting in house at an unknown 3,000 employee company. My dream is to end up as product counsel at F50. Is it possible or is my lack of business pedigree going to hold me back?

Thanks in advance!

I had a google referral from privacy counsel for a privacy counsel role that I met all the qualifications for and I didn’t even get a screener. Feeling a bit confused. I just got an offer from another FAANG company but feeling perplexed by this rejection.

It seems like we’ve had many people join from firms today. In the in-house bowl we had a lot of people speaking about F50 who don’t actually work there and the info/advice was often not accurate. If you’re not at an F50 feel free to ask questions but please refrain from commenting on things you don’t have first hand knowledge of so we can avoid the misinformation issues and make this bowl helpful for all

Best product legal teams at Google in your opinion (e.g. Ads, Google Play, Chrome, Cloud, etc.)? While I’m assuming it’s all team-dependent, any general, across-the-board ranking based on WLB, culture, morale, most impact, and most coveted?
