What’s the bare minimum amount of time you should stay at an agency? Suspecting (another) round of layoffs and don’t want to get caught with my pants down.

It’s all subjective. Do whatever you feel is good for you. I wouldn’t let spending 2 months or a year at one agency bother you too much. That whole staying somewhere for a long time looks better on your resume is a bunch of bullshit. I’ve done 4mos/1yr/2mos et cetera and still find work all the time. Same goes for my creative friends. Again, do whatever feels right and know there is a ton of work out there 😉

Some agencies will ask about short stints on a resume, but if you have a good explanation that generally sets their minds at ease. I’ve done as little as 8 months more than once

I could use some guidance on how to transition out of firm life into a government role.

I love admin law, have some litigation and some transaction work as a lawyer. Thanks!
