Q: How do I begin to think about an alternative career?
A: Start by thinking about what you’ve done and enjoyed, professionally and personally. Employers need to see the nexus in order to think about hiring you.
If, for example, you enjoy advocacy and public speaking (but not litigation), you might consider being a spokesperson for a company or cause. If you enjoy managerial work and teaching, you could look into a lawyer training role at a firm.
