What should I be doing while pounding the pavement for work in privacy?
Background: I'm a 2019 grad, my state appellate clerkship is ending & I don't have a job lined up. I have extensive experience with privacy law from law school (JD w/ emphasis in privacy, a fellowship, NJ AG exp, CIPP/US & in house pharma) and have represented clients in the SDNY, EDNY, & DNJ (emp. discrim. mediations/settlements) and FINRA (arbitration).
FYI I'm barred in NJ with an exam score eligible in all UBE states

what time is too early to have a beer at work?
This case is like an ultra-slow motion video of already-dried paint. It’s a sensory deprivation tank doled out one record-cite at a time. Working this case feels like a never-ending layover. It is unflavored gruel. It is a beige cubicle. It is my life slowly seeping away. And I hate it. I hate it so much.
Those in-house, do you find you had more autonomy in firms? E.g., at firms if I was slow I just took the day off — w/o formally telling anyone — or ran an errand middle of the day and came back and made up the hours. This doesn’t seem possible in-house. It feels like a true “on the clock.” Anyone else?

Hey All! Trying to search this bowl but didn’t quite get an answer. I did a back door IRA in late January 2022 for 2021 (both for me and my spouse) through Vanguard. Can I claim this as part of filing 2021 taxes? My tax filer asked for 1099 form but that isn’t available on Vanguard. Also, is there a Form 8606 that needs to be completed? So, essentially which forms and can I do it this year? Appreciate the input!!

Blood bath at Wall Street. Time to buy MFs?
Beginner here, so I’m sorry if this is a basic question. I grew up in a household that wasn’t making very much (IE my dad managed a family of 4 on 28k at one point). I’ve been lucky to get into consulting where I’m making more than both my parents combined. I want to secure a good financial future for my kids and want to know if anyone has advice on getting into investing, or even sources they found helpful? I know literally “zero”
