6th year L&E associate here and thinking about transitioning to a position with better WLB. How do you go about getting a government job and are they flexible about WFH, at least a couple of days a week? Recruiters reach out all the time, but always about other firm positions. Tips/ advice much appreciated!

Yes I work for a local government doing L&E, and we don’t work with recruiters. Frankly, we don’t even have the money to run a feature on LinkedIn. Check state and local government websites for openings and just apply. We are generally all back in the office currently, but in the past, we’ve been flexible with people’s schedules of child care, etc. was an issue. My job has great WLB though.

Not sure what state you’re in but I saw CA DiR post a few positions recently. Just apply directly.

I made the transition from midlevel L&E associate to state government recently. As others have said, keep an eye on government job websites - recruiters aren't going to be much help for you here. WFH may vary depending on where you work. We're still remote but anticipating a lot of hybrid schedules with at least one day remote per week. WLB is infinitely better, even though work is just as fast-paced and interesting (albeit perhaps for different reasons).

My professional life at the moment is far from ideal. I’ve been on quarantine (long story, but a good one) for the last seven years. Royalties from my books don’t pay the bills. My entrepreneurial pursuits remain hampered. For the interim, I’ve been looking for a remote opportunity where I can leverage my skills in marketing, sales, social media, and elsewhere for a decent sum. I have a social media presence which, in recent years, reached millions. There has to be something exciting I can do.
