Similar thing recently happened to me. I interviewed with a mid sized firm in February. I followed up the next month and got response. I started looking for other positions after that.

Yep, it’s so frustrating. But what people say is true, the right job is out there for you. I’ve been in your shoes waiting to secure an offer with an impending deadline in a term clerkship running out. Just remember you are valuable and the right job will come along.

Yeah move on. Honestly, just keep plugging away. You’ll definitely get a few offers and end up in the right position for you, it just takes some time. I am speaking from experience.

Considering an “attorney development” role at a big firm. Currently midlevel at a big firm. I would be helping with career planning, reviews and staffing. The attorney development role is low six figures (less than market 1st year salary) and 9-6. I don't hate practicing law, just looking for better hours and long term viability. appreciate hearing from anyone who knows folks in similar roles.

I left my consulting role of my own accord earlier this year (pre-COVID), primarily for WLB reasons. Notably, I was always rated a “top performer” and left on very good terms. I did not have a job lined up because I wanted to get out of the rat race for a bit and enjoy life. With the job search severely tougher than expected and repeated, explicit offers from my former partners to rejoin, I start to feel tempted. => See below...
