My mentee (class of 2021) graduated from a good school with decent grades but somehow ended up in a nonexistent CA market doing insurance coverage. I think he just panicked and took the first job offered. I’m trying to help him make a transition out to a primary market (I’m thinking SF/SV) and actually make money. If anyone has an leads or would be willing to meet with him please reach out.

Does he have a compelling reason for living there? I went to a very good school and got excellent grades but went to a very small market for family reasons, for example. Not sure if that’s the case here but it might be worth asking about instead of assuming the guy just panicked and took the first offer he got.

Thanks hoping this post gets some traction

So, I started watching “Limitless” with Chris Hemsworth. Apparently, he found out he carries both genes for dementia which puts him at a higher risk. So the series is about him changing things in his life for longevity. The third episode is about fasting and he fasts for 4 days until the day he has to hunt for his food. Does anyone in healthcare have thoughts on this type of fasting? I know it is done in some cultures and religions, but to what extent?

Throughout our legal careers, we’re told to reach out to the partner (or mid/senior assoc if available) if we have questions.

I’m a second year L&E lit associate and the partner wants us running point on all our cases. However, he literally never responds to questions I have on case handling/strategy, and is super vague when he does answer questions

Is this normal? If so, aside from just badgering him (which annoys him), what can I do?

Got called into a meeting yesterday with my current, small firm to have a conversation about my commitment to them and if I was interviewing elsewhere. They questioned why I left early or came late a few times in the past few weeks (it was for interviews). I obviously said I wasn't interviewing. And now, a day later, I receive an offer that I will definitely be accepting. This is going to be awkward.
