Yea I hate that

Typically 2-3x, if I can spare the time and it’s important to me. So ends up being close to an entire working day. If it’s not a high priority company for me or I just can’t spare the time then probably close to the minimum. For these things, it is NOT important to format/proofread/etc as if it were a client facing presentation. I do it sloppily (ie it would never go to client, stuff is improperly aligned) but focus on generating insights and recommendations with some structure—with very good success.

Other struggling to find work? I graduated law school in 2018 and have had such a tough time. I started out at a boutique firm, but was laid off in Oct 2019 due to a restructuring decision.

I look for work daily and have had a handful of interviews, but nothing has stuck. It’s difficult to handle the rejection and I just don’t know what to do anymore...
