Braless No More

I start my new job Monday. Probably will have limited posting time, but fortunately, Jill’s pretty damn prolific these days.

I’ll be doing essentially the same thing I was doing before, but downtown (so a much shorter commute) and with actual opportunities for advancement.

In the meantime, I’m allegedly getting my final paycheck, two weeks late. We’ll see.

    Congratulations on getting another job so quickly!

    Not that it’s any of my/our business, but is this more of a public interest thang, or are you still doing more or less corporate contract work (if that’s a correct description of what you were doing before).

    Congratulations on the need to return to supportive undergarments, congrats on the shorter commute!

    Wow that was the shortest unemplyment ever! I wish I had Skillz.

    Woo hoo! The mojo worked!

    Congratulations!

    Hurrah! Congratulations, zuzu!

    Congratulations! I’m hoping to join the ranks of the employed again soon myself.

    Thanks! It is quite a relief.

    It’s still doing corporate contract stuff. I needed a job right away, and the opportunity presented itself.

    What’s good, though, is I’ll be getting a lot of trial experience in this job, so should I decide to go into public interest law in a few years, I can hit the ground running with those skills. And, you know, find just the right opportunity rather than just take a job.

    Also, I realized that my resume was a little light on recent public-interest type stuff. Meaning, I should be a little more active in some of the more interesting subcommittees of the City Bar and stuff like that (the ABCNY is very active in challenging the Gitmo detentions, for instance) and stuff like that.

    Hurray!

    If this week has taught me anything, it’s how much one can feel for your favorite bloggers (who you don’t even really know).

    Congratulations!

    Also, wtf?! Stryper, Ron Jeremy, and Christian pro wrestling – it’s like the turducken of religious right agitprop.

    Very cool. And stress-reducing! This sounds like a great opportunity. You have a vision of what you want to do in a few years, and this job is a big step getting there. Have a drink, or more, to celebrate!

    nicely done.
    Too bad about the bra, though.

  17. February 9, 2007 at 8:38 pm

    Congratulations, zuzu. Best of luck at the new place.

    Re: your job, congratulations.

    Re: your bra, while I have no stake in the matter, condolences, I guess.

    That all sounds interesting. Incidentally, as someone who has more or less lived in poverty all his adult life, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with making money a priority in a job search. Not that you’re necessarily abashed about the corporate work, but just throwing it out there. Sometimes, strange as it sounds, money is underrated.

    The trial experience sounds great. Will you blog about it at all, or does that need to stay private? My uncle is actually a very successful corporate lawyer in DC, and it’s funny to hear how cynical and derisive he is of juries.

    Oh, believe me, if money were my number one priority, I’d have never left the Evil Empire. I’d be making easily twice, if not three times, what I make now.

    I make decent money for the rest of the world, but not necessarily for an attorney.

    Zuzu, I’m a bit late to the party with this, but congratulations on your new gig, even if it’s “just” contract. Un- and underemployment for me has always been a time of gnawing worry, so I can certainly appreciate it when you say that this new work is “quite a relief.”
