What industry are you aiming for? I work in software sales and love it - better WLB, culture. Changed over from finance as well as currently sell to financial services industry.

Yes, I was going to suggest fintech, although I think the real money is in SaaS (at least right now).

This is a very subjective question, but I’m interested in getting a variety of opinions. I graduated in 2019 and got what I initially thought was a dream job in local government dealing with civil matters. I’ve reached a point where I’m getting very bored with the work, which is 75% contract review. My talents and interests are in writing and research, which I had been told I’d be doing tons of during my interview. Do I jump ship? When? And what sort of job is ideal for a new lawyer?

I have a gut feeling that I’m not being paid market value but it’s tough to find comparable salaries. Do you think $15.38/hr is a fair wage in this case?

Hello, first post here. Outside sales, merchant services/card processing. I’m primarily a welder but I work 4 10-hour shifts typically then I try sales the last three days. I’ve done it long enough to where I’m confident and comfortable going to new businesses, establishing some rapport with business owners. But it seems like a lot of businesses see this as a waste of time, even adding services and cutting costs. I guess either I’m looking for advice or considering not doing this anymore.
