When looking for lawyer jobs, the most important thing is having the right information at the right time. It is not always about having great grades and going to a top-ranked school that matters. Those factors do help, but often being part of the right network can help you land a great law firm job or a position in a legal department where your skills are fully utilized.
But lawyer jobs do not always have to mean just working in law firms. There are jobs with nonprofits, government agencies at the local, state and federal level as well as the court system. There are also in-house positions in the legal departments of companies which many lawyers find attractive because they are widely perceived as offering better work-life balance.
