Hello everyone! I am a recent marketing honors graduate and have just finished an internship with Apple. I have also been with the company for 7 years in retail.

My host during my experience suggested that I look at new companies for entry level positions to grow my skills and continue my passion in marketing research. I would enjoy connecting to learn more about career paths and entry level marketing positions I should start looking into or any additional certifications I should get?

Hey! So.. I got promoted yesterday! My first promotion :)
I am happy about it. I have put in a LOT of work in the last couple of months, but at the expense of my physical and mental health.
Right now, I’m happy that my efforts (sacrifices?) paid off/got acknowledged. But at the back of my mind, I have this feeling that this is just the kind of sacrifice-reward system that’s unhealthy in the long run. I have had legit panic attacks in the last few months- (continued in comments)

Hi Folks,
Recently i heard that Deloitte might start setting re hire checkbox as no for people leaving after the year end hike. Any idea how true is this? I am waiting for my offer and plan to resign soon. Is this a good move to stop people or pure hyporicy which i felt.

Years after taking and passing the NY bar, I’m sitting for the FL bar exam in Feb. Doing BarBri again (which, annoyingly, I have to pay for), but I also need to take MPRE again as I took it a long time ago. What prep courses are people taking these days? I know it’s a security blanket, but I want to do it to make myself feel better, so I wanted to know which courses for MPRE people are taking these days.

Do I go back to my old firm? 3rd year lit. Been at new firm since start of the year, $130k. Left old firm on good terms, only left because I moved 4 hours to new firm to be with boyfriend (we’re no longer together). I told friends at old firm I wasn’t happy in new city and new firm is much more demanding (1900+ vs. 1750) and several partners are becoming intolerable. Gossip at old firm led to managing partner calling me to offer $110k to return and do the exact work I want to do. Worth it?

To more senior litigators/trial attorneys, does litigation get easier?

I’m a third year, and am told I do a good job. Backing that up, I’ve gotten a lot of “good” opportunities early on to take/defend depositions, be the client contact, handle drafting dispositive motions + hearings (even hearings completely on my own for the motion/response I drafted).

People in my office will say these things are fun, that I must be enjoying it. But I don’t enjoy it and I want to puke most of the time.

I'm wondering if this is accepted practice. My firm has a computer monitoring system that takes pictures of what you're working on every 5 seconds. The firm's HR/office manager then uses this to determine if you're working while you're in the office. Ex) I have outlook opened on my computer, but I'm inactive on my computer b/c I'm reading a paper file. This individual will walk into my office to see why I'm not 'working'. Getting pretty fed up.
