Totally goofed an interview, was in sell mode/selling myself, but the I didn’t want to come on to strong so I buffered with “oh yeah I can do some of the work.” 🤦🏼‍♀️ Knowing full well I’d be an asset

Cut to me towards the end of a perfect interview with a w+k recruiter saying, "you know, I thought it might be too early in my career to reach out. But then I said to myself ‘No, it’s not.’” 🤣🔫

Ughhh I’m sorry OP. Sometimes those ingrained, subconscious societal pressures are a real dick. Use it as a learning experience, and next time don’t worry about coming on too strong. A guy saying the same stuff wouldn’t be seen that way, and neither should you! Go ahead and brag about yourself during interviews - there’s definitely a way to do it without sounding like an ass and without minimizing yourself. 💪🏻

^No. It's not. You're done there. Move on. Learn from it, be confident in your abilities and articulate them. If SAM1 wants to blow sunshine up your ass about how it's "The Man's" fault, rock on. If you're worth it, say it. Gender immaterial.

I work at a Big Law firm on the West Coast and my firm is allowing me to work remotely in MN during the pandemic to be near family. After being here for the past four months, I would like to remain here even post pandemic. I am not looking to change jobs right now because I am so grateful to have a job during these times. Does anyone think that the industry will change to remote working long term? And if not, does anyone have an idea of what the law firm culture is like in MN? I’m a 3rd year.
