I actually just landed my dream job— corporate M&A biglaw, v10 firm in big city with cool coworkers and surprisingly good work/life balance and flexibility. My path here was unlike many of my Ivy League coworkers. I had to grind and network with hundreds of people my 3L year to get this job and there were many times that I thought I would end up not even practicing law. I wanted to do this exact job and I wanted it really badly, so I think that definitely was the driver in why I got this job and why I am succeeding so far.
