For those that are observing yom kippur, have an easy and meaningful fast. For those with Jewish people on your teams, don’t wish them a “happy Yom Kippur” or ask them to “enjoy the time”- it’s a solemn holiday. It’s also not the responsibility of the Jewish person on the team to teach you about the holiday - you have Google. And it’s really terrible to guilt them for signing off early/taking PTO to observe.


Junior cap markets associate at a V25 and I'm on track this month to bill 280+ hrs at my current rate and more in October.

Bonus points if tech or energy industry clients!

She blows through boundaries because she needs to vent and I'm not sure how to protect my energy and still be supportive. Ideas?
