Looking for Help

Second Career - First Year Associate with a Tech Background and experience in Businesses Development and Sales.

I work in Tax Law with a significant billable hour requirement, which I have no problem meeting (1160 Billable Hours achieved just in Q4 last year).

I am looking to speak to a recruiter or anyone with an opportunity in remote work speficially, preferably transactional in nature

Message or Comment!

Thanks!

You bill over 12 hours 365 days a year?? Open your own shop bud.

If only that were the solution - it may seem hyperbolic or exaggerated but that is the expectation that was placed on me, and I met it. It's less of a brag and more of a reality. Only explaining since your comment, while it could have been intended to be a huge compliment, seemed disingenuous, and if it wasn't the case then my sincerest apologies.

Sorry, didn't mean to sound disingenuous. More just shock really. I don't know a single associate (or partner for that matter) in biglaw that bills that amount, mostly because comp and bonuses tend to plateau around 2500 hours. At $500 an hour that's almost $2.2 million in revenue for the firm. Even maxing out bonuses won't get the average big law associate anywhere close to that in comp. I just hope you're extremely well compensated and are ok dedicating that much of your life to your job. If you are, cool cool cool.

I genuinely appreciate your response, truly. Unfortunately, compared to what I'm bringing in, I don't think that the compensation matches my pull, which is one part of my desire to transition, though not the biggest. When I'm met with an expectation, I tend to meet it despite how insane it may seem, and that's where I am at unfortunately. I met it, fought tooth and nail to get there, and now it just seems to be the maintained expectation and that's not sustainable when trying to build a career but also a life.

I’m a recruiter that is ex-biglaw. Does it have to be remote? Could be hard with your vintage but DM me, please.

Happy to speak — I’m a remote associate in transactional law at top firm in its Tech group. Your hours are insane. Get out ASAP no matter what

Sunday is a day where, if you struggle with anxiety, it builds and builds throughout the day. You have that knot in your stomach and try to push work out of your mind but I know, it's so hard to do. Please feel free to message me if you'd like some support.
