I’ve worked the last nine years for my state legislature as an attorney analyst, drafting and analyzing proposed legislation. I’ve primarily worked on health professional regulations. Next year, I will apply for student loans forgiveness under the public service program and would like a change. I know others who have gone into lobbying/government relations, but I would like to find other options to pursue. I’ve never done billable work so not sure if law firm life is for me. Any suggestions?

It depends on the state /region. There are County and local level/municipal gov agency jobs that might be a good fit.

Hi all, looking for advice on… well everything career related 😔 it’s the “great resignation” and people are moving on to better things all around me.

For anyone who needs to hear this today to keep motivation up- when I started my side gig, I didn’t know if it would ever take off. Wasn’t sure if digital courses are a thing.

Paid, fulfilled on spot. Of course you have to do the work, but the days when you feel like giving up, remember why you started
