I started in the summer and was on the bench for more than a month. No one cared, especially if you take advantage of the time and do things like training.

I was on bench for a couple months: network, make yourself known to your areas leaders and find firm initiatives to support them on so you can add value and justify your time

Started in February and did not get onto an engagement until May. It amazes me how there are so many needs for staffing, but so difficult to get onto an engagement. What skills do you have? What kind of work are you hoping to do?

Considering the push to get people to have certain cloud certifications, I have to imagine there is a work need for it.

What are your skill sets?

Mostly AWS migrations/architecting & SAP configurations. Im in front end web training now but I’m still getting the hang of that. I’m a fresh Bachelors graduate in info systems

Staffing mainly focuses on Exp and Bill rate, that's the sad part here

How did you get into your area of law? I have been licensed for 5 years and I still don't know where I ultimately want to be.

I was a good litigator but I had trouble turning off my brain and being present with my family when I was a litigator, so I don't think I would want to go back.
