This! I knew my current job was a dream when my future boss answered this question by saying “6 months is a learning period, I would just expect you to be more confident in what you do.” I’ve never heard anyone acknowledge the inevitable learning curve that comes with a new job, and it showed that she was a super patient and flexible person.

I interviewed a guy this week and he asked two people on my team who were in the room if they were proud of their work. I had never heard that question before and loved it. What an interesting angle to take when evaluating fit.

I’ve just started my career 2 years back and I really want to have an international exposure. I don’t want to change my career path and stick to consulting. The only options I have is: 1. Go for MS - which is a big investment 2. Start applying to other countries for job. But I’m not sure on which countries have opportunities since my overall experience is just 2 years. Would love to hear your suggestions.

How do you approach asking senior managers/directors/partners about writing recommendation letters? I'm applying to law school in the fall and I need some. For what it's worth I'm a second year staff at a mid-size firm, have had good reviews the entire time/known as a high-performer in my office, and I've worked directly with everybody I'm planning on asking. However, none of them know that I'm planning on applying.
