Joan King and Update Legal

HAHAHAHA!!! Is Joan King and her little workers finally owning up to the obvious??

----------

"On Wednesday September 24th at 12:30 pm, Update Legal representatives will present information about the temporary market at the Law School, Subotnick Center (11th Floor). Update Legal will raffle two Ipod shuffles. We will serve lunch so please R.S.V.P. to Valerie.henderson@brooklaw.edu by September 17th if you plan on attending. This has been a very useful program in past years.

Will any of the delusional BLS lemmings who just know that they are getting biglaw when they graduate even bother to attend such a nightmare event? Will it occur to annnnnnnyy one to ask the question: "hey, what is doc review and why should we need them to come here because we are going to be lawyers?" Or "why are they coming here? Are we not all getting biglaw?".

And, do you think for a moment that the lemmings will have a clue what questions to ask Update? Unless perhaps they read this site and Tom The Temp. Questions like: "I heard that you often do a bait and switch on the material terms and pay of a project...Is this true? "Is it true that you will prey upon our desperation after we graduate and we realize that there are NO jobs for most of the grads from this so-called fine institution?" "Is it true that if we tell one of your phone solicitors that we, indeed, do have a doctor's appointment within the next 6 months we will not get hired for a project?".

It will be a total sham.

This dirty little secret is finally getting exposed. I wonder how long they have been doing it,to help pad their so called employment stats.

It must be part of BLS graduation, you cannot get your degree unless you register with Update.

And they pretend they don't know how many BLS grads are working as temps in law firms...they are actively promoting it.

Will Joan King and Update be informing these kids that these jobs will soon all be shipped off to India, or do you only find that out after you win the Ipod?

Joan King wants the whole class to go off and work for Update Legal so she claim that all of her graduates are working in biglaw and making over 100K a year. She then can bump up tuition another 10K a year.

It is public and on the up-and-up. With all of your conspiracy theories on this blog, this should be welcomed--a breath of fresh air. Adults making decisions. On the up and up. Kwitcherbitchin'

This is ssad, spend three years and 140K in tuition to get a temp job. Why don't they just change their name to something like interboro or Catherine Gibbs or one of those other baloney "schools" you see ads for on the subway.

I think the real serious question is, is that Chin Kee Fat administrator really a fat chink?

What's really messed up is that email only went to the bottom half of the class. They know what those jobs are like.

They had the same meeting last year, only it was held in August. I didn't win the ipod. :(

Anonymous said...

maybe I'll go and if there's a Q&A ask why I've been blacklisted by Update.

Anonymous said...

Can someone please go? I would like to know why Update discriminates against people that want to work hard but are disabled? Maybe Joan King can chime in and offer her wise commentary.

A fucking iPod shuffle? You need at least a nano to get through a day of doc review.

You have to realize a few things about agencies. Most of them like Hudson and Update have a bunch of middle class gals who want to look pretty, pop off a few kids and find a dude to take care of them -- hey, maybe even from the pool of guys they interview! Barring a few older sophisticated lawyers in this game, most of these gals really don't know much and are certainly not half as qualified as the people who register with them. I have two Ivy League degrees, worked in finance for many years and then decided to take time off to take care of the kids, and temp. Once I get to actual employer we get along fabulously and I am hired for long periods of time. But the problem with me most of the time is that most agency gals will just not send in my resume because I don't kiss their ass. I am educated, attractive and assertive and I guess they are just more comfortable with fat, lumpy under-educated gals who are easier to bully. I have worked with so many losers who get placed more frequently than me because they kiss ass and tell the gals jokes and attend their lame X-mas parties. That's just the way it is -- now I try to have a few drinks before I go in to meet these losers and so that their dumbass doesn't get to me. And yes, Update blacklists you for everything. They are really just looking for an excuse so they can place on of those fat saddlebag gals on the case.

Ok, in true lawyer like fashion, let's cut & paste key portions of the above post and place them in quotes and I will insert my comments in brackets:

"I have two Ivy League degrees, worked in finance for many years and then decided to take time off to take care of the kids, and temp."

[So, you met a guy that was fool enough to marry and support you so that you could stop working and pop out some unneeded kids to seal the support deal for future divorce...The husband, I mean mark, must have also been Ivy educated and now highly paid. Very shrewd. Good for you!]

"Once I get to actual employer we get along fabulously and I am hired for long periods of time."

[Is it because you might be attractive and seemingly willing and compliant? Hmmmm. I smell lots of ass kissing or perhaps BJ's]

"But the problem with me most of the time is that most agency gals will just not send in my resume because I don't kiss their ass."

[Perhaps you should lick a little.]

"I am educated, attractive and assertive"

[Ok, so you have 2 stikes against you and you allege that you are attractive when most women, especially in NYC, highly overrate their attractiveness and bedroom and job skills..so forgive me if I am not hot and bothered by your bio.]

.."and I guess they are just more comfortable with fat, lumpy under-educated gals who are easier to bully. I have worked with so many losers who get placed more frequently than me because they kiss ass and tell the gals jokes and attend their lame X-mas parties."

[So, I suppose that you are over educated? Can one be under educated to do doc review?...Get off your trollopy Ivy league high whooo ooorse! If you were so attractive and bright you should not even be aware of what temping is. You should be an associate in biglaw or at home telling the maid to look after your kids while you count hubby's/sucker's money. Hey, fat white biotches need money too. They ain't gonna get it anywhere else in lawland so they have to go and temp. Don't hate on em.]

Wow, 11:29. You truly are bitter and jealous that no one will marry you and enable you to retire from the workforce. Get over it and be a man.

Can they export Joan King to India, too?
