Does anyone know of any good job options in FL for attorneys who are not licensed in FL? I’m wanting to move back to be closer to my family but I really do not want to take the bar again. I’m currently licensed in MO and doing products liability and trucking litigation through the Midwest. I’ve applied for some in house roles but I’ve only got three years of practice so I’m not sure I’m qualified. Is it possible to find something or will I need to suck it up and take the bar again?

I may be misinformed, but I think federal government positions only require you to be barred in one state, not necessarily where you practice. There might be some roles in that area. But generally speaking, the Florida legal market is kind of a crapshoot imho. A lot of offices might take you on and allow you to practice until you take the bar at least.

WITCH(Wipro, Infosys,TCS...) Companies used to charge clients CAN $ 26 an hour for 8 hours 24 days a month. I convert that to rupee makes nearly 2.76 lakh per month. WITCH Company paid 24-26 thousand a month to it's employees.

A good product based company pays nearly 80-120k rupees per month which is quite less than TCS Charges the client.

Left PA and started industry remotely. Haven’t been in the office. Met my team one time. Tips are to always be on video for even the smallest of calls. Take a ridiculous amount of notes. In downtime, go through your notes and come up with questions by reperforming old work. Set up recurring question sessions with your team so you know what to do next time. Set up performance meetings even monthly because it’s hard to get a gauge on your performance
