Throughout our legal careers, we’re told to reach out to the partner (or mid/senior assoc if available) if we have questions.
I’m a second year L&E lit associate and the partner wants us running point on all our cases. However, he literally never responds to questions I have on case handling/strategy, and is super vague when he does answer questions
Is this normal? If so, aside from just badgering him (which annoys him), what can I do?
27F - I’ve never been in a serious relationship and have only started dating in my recent years after college. Am I not giving guys chances if I already want to end things after 2 dates? I’m not excited to text them or make plans although the dates go well, I’m just not into them in that way? Am I expecting too much early on?
Ladies, at what annual income level did you start buying luxury brand handbags (if at all)? Also what kind of handbag do you take to the office?
Finally did it. First $1000+ watch. Don’t think I’ve ever sweat so much during a purchase.
A distant friend of mine attended my wedding and gifted me cash. I am invited to her baby shower and am not sure what is appropriate to gift. Do I gift her the same amount as what she gifted me for my wedding? I’ve generally practiced the rule that wedding gifts are traditionally larger than baby shower gifts, but since it’s not too far from my wedding, I’m stumped!

Good morning DPW. Just wanted to check-in on status and when we can expect to see the initial draft. Closing is Jan 31 so we would appreciate the immediate attention. We are willing to negotiate above market terms in the interest of time. Please let us know if you have any questions.
I recently lateraled and I think I actually just hate working for a law firm. Or rather, I hate working in this new reality where it’s normal to bill 200+ hours every month. I was fine doing this when I was doing 150-200 with a few outliers here and there, but now I’m done. How bad does it look to leave a firm after less than six months? I want to start looking for in house roles.
I am in a really horrible professional situation and I don’t know what to think or feel. I started a new job just one month ago and encountered bias on my 1:1 with regards to several topics. I wish I could start a live session right now to talk to someone but I can’t. Has anyone started at a company and realized it was a mistake early on? What did you do? How long did you stay?
Have an interview coming up for a Product Manager role at a startup and want to get more familiar with the product. Their product/website isn’t for all consumers and requires special information to sign up that I don’t have because I’m not the intended audience for the site. Any suggestions on how to get around this? I might be able to fake my way in and provide junk data but don’t know if that looks bad since my interviewers will know I did it to check out their site.
Everyone wants to be realtor until they realize Netflix shows *I’m not name dropping* and your favorite influencer realtor glamorize the field.

Thoughts on the new Ford Bronco? Is the low mpg worth it? 🤔 would love to hear from people who currently own one
I need a new car and I really love the design and capabilities, but I would use it mainly for commuting/getting around town (besides the occasional off-road excursion on weekends). I’ve done a lot of research but I still am not sure. If anyone has monthly price of owning one that would be great too. I live in CA btw
Between two offers which would you choose?
1. Junior Associate at MBB
2. Strategy & Ops Manager at Tier 2 Tech (e.g. Microsoft, Uber, Lyft, AirBnB, LinkedIn etc)
Currently at a small consultancy and received an offer for one and later stage of the process for the other. I'm curious if people think that one would be an obvious choice in terms of long term comp and growth prospects?
Plan is to exit to Tech eventually anyway but not sure if having MBB brand is better choice in the long run?

Hi, I had been laid off several weeks ago and because of eagerness to find a new job, I had sent out several apps to companies with positions I qualified for. However, I was screened out immediately due to my resume.
Because of this, I had revamped my resume to better showcase my qualifications after having colleagues review and provide feedback.
I wanted to see if it would be worth trying to apply to the same positions with a different email? Thank you for any advice!
