Cuffing season? Or looking for LTR? This is the bowl for you - https://joinfishbowl.com/bowl_dn2dgg
For the past one month and a half I have been looking for entry level roles in Governance risk and Compliance but I seem not to be landing interviews . Can someone give me pointers or if anyone can recommend me to their company for that role. I have a degree in Information science, Associate degree in IT and understand PCI-DSS framework.
Really pissed that my SO eats the mealprep I spend hours cooking, without me when I’m not home. Very happy to be cooking for the both of us to share a meal but I am so mad that my efforts at being healthier/ losing weight/ staying sane while very busy with work and struggling with my mental health are literally going down the drain. Happy to support him when he’s busy (NOT busier, just busy, like me) which is why I cook for us both, but this is too much. Am I being petty?
I am a first year in corporate. Do not have U.S. citizenship and really want/need to know the current market of firms’ Green card/H-1B policies for junior associates or retaining foreigners. How should I go about learning this? Are there recruiters out there familiar with this?
Just got reached out by a recruiter from Salesforce. Opportunity is a director role (non tech), not CSG. What process (how many interviews) and total timeline can I expect? Ty!
Just a question to people having package around 50 lacs. Are you guys paying 15 lacs of tax?. I am asking this because then the actual package will come to 35 lacs only. So it there any loophole like companies change structure or component of pay and that help employee save more tax. Because paying 15 lacs tax is huge... I might cry 😂... I know only 3-5% of people might come in that category still I am seeking reply on the same 😀
Why do you think the ways we teach math and problem-solving have changed so much since we were in school? It doesn't seem like they got any easier or less complicated necessarily, so I'm curious what the reasoning might be that they are so drastically different.
Can anyone elaborate what is the next process after value round in Barclays and schedule in how many days. I gave the values round 15 days ago and the response was positive. I should follow up or wait.
Can someone please help regarding the variable pay in EY INdia. Like I have variable pay of 3L. How much will I get from this. Because I have same offer from Capegemini and EY India. But In EY there is only variable which is extra.. And is EY india is better to join than Capgemini. Because I heard very bad reviews about it.Capgemini EY India

How’s the job market looking now? Specifically Dallas area, but want opinions on elsewhere too.
Is anyone else feeling like there are now a lot of applicants and fewer good positions to go around?
It's always tough, but this year it has felt impossible to stay on top of grading. Sure, there are online quizzes the computer can grade for you, but that data is so limited. What about the steps they took to get that answer on the math problem? I need to see it to know what they missed... Between submission of blurry photos and going through the process of uploading, downloading, and squinting to see their work, it takes me 20x longer to grade work for my digital kids. #thestruggle
Disappointing but honest recap by a recruiter (big job/agency): “They loved you/your book/experience—but they wanted to hire a woman.” No sour grapes. This is what women endured for decades. Onward...
Favorite rental markets?
Looking for a referral to Stryker Corporation (for a marketing position)! Happy to discuss my background with anyone — thanks in advance! :)
Ladies - I’m torn between wanting to switch from a backpack to a LV neverfull for work travel or a new tumi voyageur. Thoughts? Those who use LV, does it feel unbearable to carry shoulder bag

Does your firm provide or reimburse for standing desks? Thinking about asking for one because my back is killing me.
In my home country, we never tell our current colleagues where we are going when we leave a job, especially if it’s going to a competitor. However, in the US, it seems that it’s common people will share that information easily. I’m usually afraid that they would call up my new firm behind my back and badmouth me.
Has anyone moved from attorney, to in-house at a company (more legal compliance/HR then the legal department), stayed there for a while, and then transitioned back to being an attorney? I’m thinking about taking a Human Resource position/compliance roll (employment law is my background) but I’m worried that in the future it will look bad on my resume if I want to transition back into being an attorney if I dislike the HR/compliance position. I’ve been practicing 2 years.
How would one politely ask for a deadline (without coming off as being slack) when receiving an email assigning work without a deadline?
I’m a third year business and corporate lit associate at a boutique NY firm (with heavy litigation work and some transactional work for a major well drilling company). I was just given a legal assistant because my workload has increased substantially. I’m too busy to delegate (court), and she knows nothing about law. She’s never worked in a law firm. She’s very eager to help and often gets underfoot, and the other assistants are too busy to train her. I don’t trust her enough to delegate. Tips?
Firm just told us associates that we will not be getting any market raise because “we are a different type of firm” ... I think I’ll start looking elsewhere. 🤪
Has anyone ever been sued for malicious prosecution and had your legal assistants (employees) named as individuals as defendants?? I’m in CA.
What is the best way to master Logic games on the LSAT? I’m having the toughest time wrapping my brain around these question stems.
Do you like the partner you work for/with? If yes, what have you learnt from them. If not, please tell me why. Somedays i think i work with a thoughtful good leader, and others (mostly) someone who doesn’t give a shit about their associates.
I'll say it louder for the partners in the back:
GIVE GARBAGE INSTRUCTIONS, EXPECT GARBAGE RESULTS.
Has anyone here worked (or does anyone currently work) for Bernstein Litowitz (aka BLBG)? Very interested to learn what inside associates feel about the firm, its culture, work-life balance, billable hours, etc.
How do I handle another associate taking all of my billable work? I am relatively new to the firm, so I have very few cases of my own at the moment. I struggle to get hours. The other associate has many more cases of their own. However, every time we get new documents, assignments, etc on my few cases, the other associate rushes and bills for it. At the end of the month, I have so few hours that I feel useless to the firm.
I am looking to relocate to Denver, and cannot seem to get anyone to even look at my resume. I'm a third year in litigation, AM200, really great experience and resume so far, and have family/friend connections (not in law) to the city. I would like to move to a large regional firm that pays at market ($150k ish). Any insight on how to get noticed without connections to the firm? Anyone have tips on who is hiring and who would consider someone relocating? TIA.
Any attorneys have board positions? If so, at what stage of your career did you find the position? How’d you get involved?
Remote workers— what’s your daily schedule like, how much are you at your desk all the time?
This law job is my first 9-5 ever, and it’s been disorienting trying to figure out boundaries and a schedule when there’s no one around to compare to? Sometimes I feel bad about taking a lunch or not being near my computer, even when the workload is light, which is wild. Frankly, I just don’t know how to take advantage of the flexibility of remote work because I’m so preoccupied with being available.
Do juniors in big law typically foster strong partner relationships/have partner mentors? 2nd year at V50 and I’ve only worked directly for more senior associates on deals..(continued below)
When submitting a writing sample, should you redact party names? Should you just change them to generics like John Doe v. Jane Doe? The case is actively going on.
