Tips when starting a new job for a corporate company?
I'm starting a new job next week for a corporate entertainment complex. I will be working in admin in the legal department and there is 4000 people employed by the complex. Does anyone have any tips or advice in regards to corporate jobs and help so I can succeed in this job?

Remember, first impressions are lasting impressions.
From the start, listen a lot and say very little.
Remember, your first few weeks, you must learn from them, you have little to offer , they have a lot to offer. This is not to say that you won't have anything to offer them. You will, but not at first.
Find a mentor.A mentor is an older, wiser, more experienced person. he will teach you the corporate : culture". He will teach you who your friends are, and those who it's best to have as little contact with as necessary.
Remmeber, there's a lot of office politics there, as well as anywhere. Lean who is who, who will help you., and who will see you as a threat.
Often, it isn't what you know, but who you know. Learn who the right people are.
Remember your first day in High school College. It's deja vu all over.
Can anyone suggest a reliable operator on Sydney Harbour that I can contact for some Corporate Charters?
We would like to do series of outdoor team building exercises, such as sailing regattas and corporate entertainment charters for our staff of 60 persons.
Question answered by Ellie McMaugh
A few months ago, a colleague of mine arranged a corporate charter for our company. He called a company based in Rose Bay...Sydney Harbour Escapes. They had so many boats to choose from, but basically they emailed him through heaps of options and gave their personal advice on what would be best for us.
We ended up doing a sailing race...a catamaran regatta on three of their boats (Seawind Catamaran). We were divided into teams of three on three separate boats...my team was on a boat called Perfect Day, which of course won hands down! My competitive streak came out, so I got really hands on, where as a few of my colleagues chose to lay out on the front deck with a drink in hand and enjoyed the ride. It was great.
We stopped to raft up outside the zoo for lunch (which our skippers cooked up on the BBQ).
It was so much fun - highly recommend for a fun day out on Sydney Harbour. It really suited our team, whereas you may like to opt for a high-end cruiser to do the day in style...they have huge boats to accommodate your party of 60 for a more tame harbour cruise.
Anyway, speak with them direct and they'll give you honest advice and send through prices etc.
With the financial crises worldwide, do you think real football fans will get a seat now?
With so many financial institutions using up so many seats in stadiums across the land for corporate entertainment, will clubs realise this cash cow has gone and restructure ticket prices to allow real footy fans back in?
This is more aimed at the lesser leagues (like Scotland) as England have their cash cow in SKY.
Were clubs to do this and bring true supporters back, would they see the error of their ways?
Sorry the Socialist in me demanded I ask this question.
Question answered by falgee
Come the revolution charlie all clubs will be owned by the fans and it will be free to attend, with players turning out for the love of their team... and the big time money men will be working as stewards in the away end.
What are the different specifications of law?
that you can deal with? As for being a lawyer, i mean. I know there are corporate lawyers, entertainment lawyers, and such? Can anyone tell me the vast majority of jobs as a lawyer and also what each one deals with summarized? That'd be great, thanks! =]
different law practices. Also, if anyone knows of widely popular book, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, what practice of law does Atticus Finch have?
Question answered by davidsohn1
It is pretty broad. Lawyers are licensed by individual states to practice in that state. To be licensed you must pass an exam. After passing the bar of at least one state you may apply to practice before the federal trial, appellate and supreme court without additional testing. This is except for those who wish to assist people or corporations in obtaining a patent. Those who "prosecute" patents must have a bachelor of science and pass a separate exam. As to different "specification" you probably mean "specialties." There is no training for lawyers like doctors receive in their residencies to become specialists. Rather, lawyers can develop knowledge in an area of law through practicing in the area under the guidance of other lawyers in their firm. The types of law one practices can generally be broken down into trial lawyers (i.e. those who regularly appear in court and represent clients) and others (those who don't appear in court and specialize in drafting legal documents like contracts, wills, deeds, trusts, or otherwise offer advice). Basically a lawyer is a lawyer.

You want to get in contact with investment bankers. Good luck, most of them are in New York or L.A.
What are some strategies for getting corporate sponsorship?
I'm looking to find corporate sponsorship for an entertainment-based business. Any ideas?
Question answered by superscribe
I'm a marketing specialist, I think the best is to think like the marketing VP of the company you're targeting. How would being visible to your audience be of benefit to the company?
There are three basic questions to ask to secure the sponsorship (assuming you know, through research or interviewing, what their marketing goal is):
1. Can you see how sponsoring my event will help you reach your goal?
2. Are you interested in reaching that goal?
3. When would you like to start / commit?
#1 is the most critical question, and of course, you can't really ask that question until you've done all the required homework and can prove to them that sponsoring your event will be of significant benefit to them.
I was involved in getting a $80,000 sponsorship from a corporation, and I can tell you that it takes a lot of research and planned negotiation. But it's definitely worth it! :-)
Can an investment bank/Financial Advisory firm double as a Corporate law and Entertainment law firm?
The firm would double. Not in terms of Investment Bankers also doing law but the Firm would also hire Lawyers specializing in Corporate Law and Entertainment Law providing more diversified capabilites than most firms.
worth isnt measured in figures
Question answered by Paul
As long as the attorneys do not solicit and conduct securities business without the proper licenses, there isn't anything stopping an investment firm from having attorneys on the payroll or conducting more than one business line..
