So I’m an incoming non-tech summer intern at Facebook. I’m moving from Wall Street finance into the tech world which has always been a goal of mine. I’m a junior in college and I want to know what tips you professionals have for me for killing the internship and being productive without burning myself out. I want to be extremely intentional and hit my goals to receive an amazing return offer based on performance so maybe I can later leverage that offer with other tech companies! Thanks Facebook

I’ve been in the federal consulting space for the past 6 years, with 9+ YOE overall. I’m so burned out from federal consulting. Our clients have such a low bar to clear themselves and are checked out most days. Our work is measured mostly through vanity metrics that don’t consider impact or innovation at all. I’m thinking a jump to commercial consulting could offer a much needed break in both compensation and challenging, meaningful work, but don’t know what firms or roles to target.

I’m unsure if I should stay in workers comp defense or switch into medical malpractice. I like workers comp, but everyone says med mal is more sophisticated and I think I might like to do jury trials again. Problem is, my wife is a doctor and she said she would try to be supportive if I ever did plaintiffs work but would always feel hurt/betrayed if I built a career suing doctors. So with WC, I could transition into claimants one day but with med mal, I’d need to do defense. (Cont’d)
