My goal was to practice corporate law, but it seems as though that door is completely shut at this point. Most the job postings I see are usually DA or public interest, but honestly, I have no passion for that type of thing. I have been thinking to maybe try and use my law degree to get my foot in the door at a bank or something. They probably are more interested in someone with a business degree. Even if I got that type of job though, it would kinda hurt going through law school and never actually practicing law. Guess I don't know what to do at this point.
One of my friends from school 3L year was in this position. He found an opening for a compliance gig on monster.com (or some similar site), interviewed, got it, worked there for a year or two, then got a job as VP at a bank near his hometown (New England suburbia). He seems pretty happy, and his hours seems pretty humane.
Hang in there!
