Three months into litigation, working at a mid-size firm in three different practice groups under four different partners. I’ve botched two drafting assignments in a row for one of the partners. Having a crisis of self confidence and don’t know how short of a leash I’m on if I mess up another assignment.

Have not been able to clear the finish line for Sales Engineer roles because of no sales experience 😔.. 2 big companies in tech. Constant feedback is that I do have strong process and product experience but no sales experience. Any suggestions?
Would appreciate referrals too. Have over 15 years experience in implementation and solutioning.

When sending a cold email to a recruiter, should you include a reason why you’re interested in the agency? Or keep it short and sweet with your book, resume and what you’re looking for?
We are a data/software provider. My business folks get lots of requests from customers to fill out annual security/due-diligence assessments. I don’t have an issue with them generally, but many of them now include “attestations of compliance”, and will throw in a link to their Vendor Code of Conduct.
We don’t agree in our contracts that we will comply with their Codes (or even that we will answer these assessments in the first place) - but assuming that the business does “attest” to (Cont)
Why’s there such a negative view on Internal Audit. Really thinking about moving into IA after public. Better pay, generally a 9-5 job, no weekends. With all that time saving I’d have more time for side hustles.

I need some inputs on if I should pursue a MBA. Goal that I would use MBA for is getting into VC, only a undergrad internship in that space, or doing a search fund and like micro PE. I would consider corporate VC too.
