Why do you think most referral requests are not even acknowledged?
It’s solely because of this standard one liner- “Can you refer me to a job in your company?”
RESEARCH is your mantra & key word.
If you want a referral , do your homework on the open positions.
See if they match ur skills & expertise
Then reach out with the open position name asking for referral.
See the difference with a little bit of effort & investment

Suggestions on how to resign from a small firm? Only 4 attorneys including me and I work for both partners at the firm, but definitely 1 more than the other. When they ask why, I'm focusing on the fact that I'm going to a national firm on a partner track rather than anything negative. I'm a 4th year and have been at the firm for 3 years....I know they are going to take it personally...but to get greatest extent possible, I do not want to burn the bridge.
All suggestions welcome! Thanks!

Attorney with ADHD, just joined a firm which lacks a good organizational system for finding form language, past documents, etc. and I'm still struggling to master the search function on the program we use.

Frankly, I'd welcome any suggestions or best tips for staying organized, whether it's probate deadlines, finding language,etc. Thanks!

Considering companies are cutting raises and bonuses, have any of you found new jobs that are giving a pretty considerable % increase? Or is the job search coming up low on salary offerings too?
I’m onboarding at a new consulting firm (big4). I was told in a big onboarding meeting with 300+ people in all kinds of diff roles at the firm that the ideal utilization rate is 80% billable. How long did it take you to get to 80% billable? And are there ever any consulting roles where you can consistently be less than 80% billable and still get promoted, get rated well, etc eg if your role just naturally involves a lot of admin work like proposal writing?

Quick poll: List your gender & a quick sentence on whether you like to work for male or female bosses (ok to say no preference). Me personally - Male - I’ve had better experiences working with male managers. I’ve noticed that more female managers feel disadvantaged and try extra hard to prove themselves (incredulous this happens in 2020), but in the process tend to be more demanding and stressful to work with. This is not intended to offend anyone. Just genuinely looking to learn and grow.
