(Cont.) My ultimate goal is still to work as in-house counsel (GC eventually) in entertainment, but all listings I see are either on the coasts or require law firm experience. I’m in my 3rd year, and feel like I have the experience and skills, but without the firm experience I feel dead in the water. I’ve taken pro bono work in entertainment, and worked on international licensing deals. In my 9-5 I’m negotiating complex and varied agreements, advising multiple departments, and managing litigation in multiple jurisdictions and across varying practice areas. I even got a certificate in IP law while in law school and have attended the ABA forum for a couple of years trying to beef up those credentials. Have I blocked myself out here? What can I do to get my foot in the door? Not licensed to practice locally, in-house only (reason for pro-bono work).

Yup. Also music is booming on the tech side of things with streaming/content on twitch and other platforms. Sounds like you have/will have great experience to make a move to music/digital space. Have no fear

Might be that our field is no longer hot. I have a similar experience, but I’ve been more or less unemployed since graduating in 2017 as a result.

How do folks manage childcare? Me and my partner work both work in MBA level roles.

Is this a reasonable number or should I be looking at alternate options. We can stretch and afford it, but my question is how does an average American raise families?
