Lawyers change jobs a lot. Among attorneys with approximately 3 years of experience:
- More than a third have already changed jobs once.
- 44% plan to move within two years. (See "After the JD" (pdf) for more information.)
So, even if you know right now what kind of work you’d like to do and what kind of employer you’d like to work for, statistically speaking, you’re likely to change your mind.
Discovering your strengths and understanding different legal career paths is essential to mapping a pathway to your first job . . . and every job after that.
