Other struggling to find work? I graduated law school in 2018 and have had such a tough time. I started out at a boutique firm, but was laid off in Oct 2019 due to a restructuring decision. After months of searching, I finally landed another position at a boutique firm only to get laid off again one month later due to the pandemic. I look for work daily and have had a handful of interviews, but nothing has stuck. It’s difficult to handle the rejection and I just don’t know what to do anymore...
Any tips to boost confidence? Especially as I dive back into the job hunt. It’s been years since I’ve looked for and prepared for job interviews and my confidence is not here.

Should I keep applying or give up? I graduated from a mediocre law school 10 years ago (cum laude) and have a tax llm from a good school but mediocre grades(3.1) . I am licensed. I work in public accounting and am at one of the large firms. I do tax controversy, writing, research, international. I applied for tax law firm job over the years - rejected. I interviewed with a small firm today - it's an intellectual step down - I can't do that. Big law still an option or stop disappointing myself?

My firm’s support staff went through a shuffle and my former assistant got a promotion. I’m so happy for her, but was bummed to lose her as my day to day support.

Hello everyone, I have got 18 days of unused PTO and I am planning to initiate my resignation process in few days. Couple of questions - Does Deloitte payout all the unused PTO days ? Is there a limit to the number of pay out days ? - if answer to above question is no, how did you all handle this situation. Did you take PTO before notice period ? *trying to stay in good terms ! Appreciate the suggestions/insights. Deloitte

Kind of embarrassed to ask this, but how does one ask for a sign on bonus? I’ve never asked for one but I always hear about them. At what stage do you ask and how do you phrase it?
