Grab hold of the systems and procedures first…devil is in the details…you’re only as good as your ability to plan and coordinate so the candidate has a great experience heading into interview..

I’m a jr litigation associate with many years of tech work pre law school. A former coworker has offered to submit my resume for a legal role at her company (also tech) basically doing contract and privacy work as well as other tasks relevant to my former work life. My current resume is full of litigation experience from law school, since my resume is written for applying to lit positions. On the one hand, it bolsters my legal experience. On the other, it’s not relevant to this role. Do I cut?

About 6 months into a new job. Love the role, decently happy with the company, but realized I’m ~$20-$70k below median for the industry. Have a mid year review coming up and was curious if it’s way too early to bring something like that up. I don’t want to come off mercenary or greedy, but I’d love to close that gap by $20k and call it a day.

Today I received an offer for a fully remote position at a smaller firm (150 people) in the Pacific Northwest once I move back this summer. They initially offered US$135K but after my comment about it being lower than I expected was raised to US$140K.

My gut tells me this is low. Please help!
