So many (often trivial) things, but more importantly can we normalize not being an industry known for eating its young? Maybe a stretch but actually coaching/nurturing the next gen?

Pharma too early on (unless you want to be in pharma)

I wasn’t even in pharma but I had a few big health insurance clients at my last agency, it took me 9 months to get a non pharma new job, so many doors were slammed in my face because of any proximity to health stuff.

Has anyone used the reMarkable tablet? I’m growing tired of using multiple notepads, but haven’t heard enough to justify spending the money on one yet. It seems brilliant and perfect for this type of work, but want to hear more feedback before spending the money. Pros? Cons?
And if anyone does swear by theirs, is it permitted in court to take notes since it’s technically an electronic device, even though it doesn’t have web browsing capabilities or recording functions?
