Is the grass greener on the other side?

grassJob hunting is a part of life.  As this Macleans article “Bay Street lawyer blues” points out, many female lawyers think that the pasture is greener on the other side.  The best advice that I can give law students out there is to get a taste of all the different fields out there while you’re still in law school.  I spent time in a plaintiff’s firm, a defence firm, a non-profit agency and a corporate in-house department before I settled on what I think is the ideal job for me.  You have three years; it’s well worth the time to explore your options.
