What is the most amount of times you have Applied to one specific company? It could be different job titles and different states but how many times have you applied to the same company? Sodexo , levy, compass group, Hyatt Hilton Marriott have Applied to all those 30 or 40 times over the past three years. Talk about insanity. I stopped applying six months ago I’m no longer wasting my time with people like this!

A few months ago I asked the question about using travel smart routers to host a VPN to disguise your location. The purpose of this is to have a working vacation in a foreign country, without telling work about it. My work computer has restricted access so I cannot install a VPN service on the computer without help from IT. My work around is a smart router that can directly host a VPN. Now I am in Cabo with a VPN to the US. I’ve included some details in a comment below. AMA

I lateralled into biglaw from a compliance job a couple of months ago because I was given a "too good to be true" opportunity (2 years out of law school), and I have regretted it ever since. Has anyone successfully left biglaw after one year and gone in house or boutique? (Please no nasty comments, we all make mistakes when that much money is involved). I can afford the pay cut thankfully, just worried about the ability to find work.

What good, and bad comes out of corporate lobbying in the US?
I've seen how it can shape some policies at a a federal level, but haven't done much research at the lower levels. All input is welcome. 🙂
Has anyone left big 4 for another big 4 as an equity partner in US advisory? Did the firm you left make you wait out your notice period? Partner agreement states six months. Wondering if they would waive it to save the 6 months of distributions and just rely on the non compete, or do they really enforce and pay the 6 months gardening leave? Appreciate any insight

Got let go for poor performance. Been struggling with mental health but between therapy and medication I finally feel ready to get back on my feet. Interviewing for new opportunities, some for large consulting firms, but given the rigor of our profession and the industries we serve how do I avoid burn out and the return of poor mental health and performance in the future? More immediately, how do I go about explaining why I haven’t been working for over a month now to new prospective employers?

Not sure if anyone who’s not in the ACN bowl will be able to read this (let me know if not, and I’ll send screenshots). But.. it’s concerning how many people don’t know what a micro aggression is. Not referring to OP who asked for examples, but the actual responses are so loud and wrong.
I love y'all. In case y'all needed a casual reminder that you matter even if your workplace doesn't reflect that.
ICYMI. I think Omar Epps should play this dude in the movie. Or maybe Ice Cube's son. (I refuse to make the obvious Ice T joke)
To discuss: What is the harm in “burning a bridge” with someone / organizations that clearly don’t respect you or care about you? What are you afraid of by speaking honestly?
Don't care if this falls into virtue signaling. I appreciated the response (and yes, I asked a robot how it is feeling. Quarantine feels are real)

Really depends on what area you want to stay in. LA is huge and has a ton of traffic so if you’re in town for less than a week you’ll probably stay in the same few areas which will dictate food options
There are great restaurants at every price point. Consider how much you want to spend on food per day and work from there. The LA food scene is diverse. There is even really good food trucks
