Formação dos preços dos produtos de exportação
Bar Preparation / 17 de outubro de 2017

Preços para produtos Embora a maioria das empresas gaste o tempo necessário para obter uma compreensão completa dos cálculos de preços para seus negócios domésticos, muitos não colocam o mesmo esforço quando se trata de seus mercados de exportação. Infelizmente, isso pode ter um efeito de fluxo na competitividade e na rentabilidade do negócio. Embora alguns exportadores simplesmente cobram seu preço doméstico sem pensar mais, aqueles que são bem-sucedidos a longo prazo quase sempre investiram o tempo necessário para obter o preço de exportação certo. Custos a incluir ao estabelecer preços de exportação Independentemente de quem organiza e paga o frete e os custos, como os direitos de importação, você deve saber os custos que seu produto atrai pela cadeia de suprimentos. Sem conhecer esses custos, você não pode entender completamente onde seu produto se encaixa no mercado e, portanto, compare seu preço com os de seus concorrentes. Alguns exemplos de custos na cadeia de suprimentos incluem: • Expedição fábrica para porto de partida • Transporte aéreo e marítimo e seguro • Imposto de importação e impostos • Desembaraço aduaneiro / taxa de corretor • Transporte terrestre do porto de entrada para o armazém ou o cliente • Taxas de…

Hello job fair, my old friend
Bar Preparation / 27 de agosto de 2017

My worst nightmare by JD I entered the room to shake hands with an older man and a younger woman. The guy was the most evil person ever. It was only a 20 minute interview, but somehow he terrified me so much that he almost made me cry. First, he asked me why I was interested in working in DC (besides the fact that I am from the area). I was like “Well, you know, I like being in a big city, working alongside or near the federal government and government agencies, some financial institutions, etc…” other crap and he was like “Financial institutions?!?! HAHAHAHAHAAAHAHAH! No WAY. NO. YOU’RE WRONG. That’s NEW YORK.  Not DC.” I was like “well …okay….” Then, shortly afterwards, he asked me “Why do you want to work with us?” I described the firm’s great reputation, that it seemed like a collegial and cooperative atmosphere, etc., and he was like:  “Umm…no. Everyone says that. Really, what makes us different?” (Keep in mind, this was a job fair, and I had like 5 interviews at once, so while I had researched the company, I hadn’t really been prepared for this level of specificity.) SOOO I made some…

Passing the Bar The Second Time Around: A Do-It-Yourself Lesson Learned
Bar Preparation / 26 de agosto de 2017

Let’s be honest. We all knew that the majestic, beige paper with our names and JD written in fancy letters comes with a price tag. NOT THIS JD THIS JD Complain all we want about how law schools duped us all, but at the end of the day, even with greater transparency with regard to employment and salary stats, quite a few of us would have signed up anyway with ambitions of high grades and dream jobs. However, one very significant cost, which at least in my case was severely underestimated, was the price tag of the most obnoxious and arguably most stressful part of law school—the bar exam. My bar experience involved a $700 bar application fee (plus a $125 laptop fee), a $2500 Barbri tuition fee, and a $400 “round 2” bar application fee (plus a $125 laptop fee). In hindsight (of course), I could have avoided destitution and months of agony if only I possessed the stones to just-say-no to the Barbri (or Kaplan) pushers, ignore the overwhelming majority of peers who were hooked on it, maintained an ounce of faith in my scholastic abilities, and prepared on my own by ordering a set of bar prep…

The ABA Limit on Student Work Hours
Bar Preparation / 26 de agosto de 2017

The ABA Guidelines limit a law student’s ability to work more than 20 hours a week as a full time student. With tuition on the rise and many low-income applicants already suffering as a result, an additional limitation on the ability for students to earn money while studying would only add insult to injury.  Without the sprinkling down of ubiquitous scholarships, most students face crippling debt. Take the example of a working single mom who fits all the admissions criteria but does not get a scholarship and cannot risk the welfare of her children to spend three years accumulating debt.  She considers that many scholarships get taken away after the first year of law school, and the decision not to go seems wise.  However, she wants the opportunity to practice law.  She enrolls but eventually finds that she cannot keep up with her bills or even consider hiring adequate supervision for her kids despite the loans and despite her scholarship unless she can work more than 20 hours a week. Now, consider a student from a low-income background, already looking to pay off debt from undergraduate loans, who decides to enter law school anyway.  Imagine that this student decides to attend Boston University,…
