I worked at a large insurance defense firm for 4 years out of law school. I really enjoyed the work itself, but the hour expectations kept increasing and I was getting burnt out. I decided to try a new type of law and have been at the new firm 3 months. I have way less responsibilities and none of my own cases. I’m worried this was a wrong move/too far of a step backwards. I know I don’t see myself here long term, but I’m not sure how long I need to stay to avoid looking like a job hopper—help!

Having confidence to take the next step in your career is all about the process.

When thoughts become beliefs, take action.

Outcomes give you data to help adjust your approach and build confidence.

I’ve been in the federal consulting space for the past 6 years, with 9+ YOE overall. I’m so burned out from federal consulting. Our clients have such a low bar to clear themselves and are checked out most days. Our work is measured mostly through vanity metrics that don’t consider impact or innovation at all. I’m thinking a jump to commercial consulting could offer a much needed break in both compensation and challenging, meaningful work, but don’t know what firms or roles to target.
