Setting up and building a beautiful job just to have engineers go behind me and wreck it with poor modeling practices.

Well in fairness Revit is a movement driven by the architectural firms in creating a 3D atmosphere that is supposed to be collaborative. The fault lies in that when engineers shouldn't have to work in a 3d atmosphere for majority of things (it's more analysis than to scale).
Example: architects care about location of receptacle whereas electrical engineers care about the quantity and positioning of them.

Advice: So, in both '16 & '19, I reached out to a local ECD saying I was now freelancing/touching base & if they ever need help, give a shout, etc. Typical networking. Not a cold call: we have many mutual connections/have worked at similar past agencies, both pros, not strangers. And in both cases, 3 years apart? Crickets. Nada. Snub.

Cut to today: I post an ECD gig & they're all "HEY PAL, LOVE TO HEAR MORE, MISS YA!" So: do I help or say, "Riiight, now that YOU need something...karma baby" ?

Have I missed my chance with biglaw? I need someone to give it to me straight. For the past year or so people have been telling me I have a shot, and I’ve been applying left and right and doing all I can to network. I’ve been hopeful the whole time, but I rarely even get an email response back. Graduated from a good school with good grades but have only managed to scrape up staff attorney positions. All I need is that one “yes” to prove that I can succeed, but it’s not coming.
