So What do You want to do With Your Law Degree?
You probably know what you don't want in a job, but you're struggling to figure out what exactly you do want.
✦ You search job postings online, but rarely apply because—despite your JD and years of legal experience—you somehow don’t think you’re qualified enough.
✦ Or you go to the other extreme, sending out oodles of résumés and getting little to no response.
✦ Let's not even get into all the "informational interviews" you've endured.
✦ You may even daydream about starting your own business or law firm, but stop short of pulling the trigger when fears of the unknown and failure overwhelm you.
✦ Most days you numb yourself with busy-ness, booze, or Netflix—whatever gets your mind off your dead-end lawyer gig.
And like the majority of attorneys, you ultimately end up in the same place: settling for the job you have instead of going after the one you really want.
