Anyone here who works at Venable? In IP Department ideally. Looking for your thoughts about firm culture generally, work life-balance, how the atmosphere is for women, how the working relationships between staff and attorneys seems, how turnover is these days, etc. Am considering applying for a position there that would remote working and I think would be a job that does work for all of the offices that have IP groups (which may be all of them?)

My grief can be triggered in a million different ways. Any advice from your experiences? (also I am in counseling)

Anyone else feel odd when separated from their spouse post-pandemic?

For Chicago lifers, what’s the rite of passage before a transplant can really consider themselves a Chicagoan (if ever)? I’ve lived here a few years, pay a boatload in taxes, survived the polar vortex, been delayed countless times at ORD, and have eaten a thousand Chicago Dogs (and have opinions about where to find the best). Other than place of birth, what qualities or experiences do you feel make a “Chicagoan”?

My little sister is a junior in college and is interested in advertising (specifically creative). Are there any internship programs / agencies you’d recommend she looks into?
(This is kind of an ad, but I started the bowl, so here ya go...) Alright, friends, I'm a huge fan of the Southwest Companion Pass. I've had it for 3 years, and have gotten LOTS of free flights out of it! This year, Southwest/Chase have made it so much easier to earn the Companion Pass by raising the credit card sign-on bonuses. I would be posting this even if I didn't get a bonus from it, because it's been so great and such a money saver. (Continued in comments)

Advice on pivoting into Sales from Accounting? I know I have the skills and it’s a better fit, personality-wise. I am not a super technical accountant, but my background is still a super strong skill set I bring to the table with me (the ability to process and translate the technical to layman’s terms, and the anticipation of client needs and wants). Are there Sales recruiters similar to those for Public Accounting? Do I go for Inside/Outside 1st? What are your recommendations and wisdom?
