Allow women’s voices to expand. Let’s be progressive, Stop the structural oppression or xxxx shaming.
McDonald’s ex CEO is sued by the said organization for alleged sexual misconduct with employees. There are too many of such news these days.

Default Luck plays a part - don't take it too personally

I'm an associate in some law firm in Singapore. I wanna thank all the posters here who try to share thoughtful comments with the rest of us.

Based on my limited experience and circles, it would appear that a lot of hiring is really arbitrary - much is based on timing. "Fit" is just another word for "likeability"/"chemistry", and just like any other job, some people are just luckier. But in this regard, confidence and a positive disposition can compensate for that. Have a thick skin.

This arbitrariness is a shame because lots of people get stuck in their initial year(s) of practice (bad mentor, bad firm) and then drop out; while at the same time their classmate/peer who is not much different on paper got lucky with another role.

But I think there's some things people can still do: grades stick with you for a while - so study hard (but I admit that intelligence is a limiting factor). Make genuine connections with people; ask questions - I think some associates still care enough to share. And for the rest, some may just like the feel of being a mentor, or just want to network with as many people as they can, or they just want your free coffee and cake. Don't be shy. Sometimes all it takes to get a job is to ask for it.

So for the fresh grads/trainees, don't be too disheartened if you're having difficulty (especially now, when firms are using covid as an excuse - seriously, the partners make so much in the good times it's shocking).

I hope that if you're at this stage you already have that determination to make it; but if not, do realise that the practice of law is but one option - we live in different times.

Would I have done it again? Probably not - but then again this may just be me being hit by 'grass is greener' syndrome.

Thanks a lot for this, I’m stuck in a similar situation as the one you have just described. “Law is just one but one option” - I have been spending time thinking about what are some of the options I could possibly partake in at this time and age. I think there are many things I can do since I have not turned 30 yet. People have been telling me that there are many opportunities out there such as banking, teaching, tech, project management or strategy consultancy.

I am currently trying to see what are the other options which are more suited for my personality. I would like to try as many things as possible before I hit the big three.
