I have 1 year of experience basically as general practitioner at a regional firm, mostly because my firm is disorganized as hell and offered zero training or mentorship. I literally get thrown intakes for contract, family law, criminal defense and do it live. I’ve learned a lot in a year but mostly the hard way. I’m sick of the lack of leadership and want to go elsewhere but every job opening requires 3 years experience in a certain practice area so I’m getting nowhere with interviews. Plz help

Additional context that may or may not matter: I have six years as an officer in the military overseeing multi million dollar government contracts…managing the full life cycle start to finish. I also have a STEM bachelors degree and am actively studying for the patent bar. Was Editor in Chief of a secondary journal at a T40 law school. Top 1/3 of the class.

Pass the patent bar and all your troubles will be over! Patent litigation is the sport of kings.

I’ve been approached by a Capgemini recruiter for a role in their tech consulting group. I know CG is less prestigious than Deloitte but I’m tempted by opportunity to increase base comp by 25% (I know not to trust bonus % any recruiter dangles), and move from Deloitte M to CG Director (E1).
Have any of you Big4 fishes made the move to CG? Glad or sad you did?
