New Job?
I can always count on my pals here to steer me in the right direction! I'm thinking of actually applying for a position (yes, I'd be an employee) in an area of the law in which I don't generally practice, but I can learn. The job is also 100 miles away in my hometown, but that's not really a problem.

The position is full time, but they can't find anyone. I would suggest working 2 full days there, and I'd stay at my sib's house. I could actually work 10 hours there each day. I would work the rest of the time at home. That's because my other position is 2 mornings a week here in my town. I definitely don't want to give that up.

I'm looking for a change; one reason being, I am once again becoming burned out on family law, which has happened on and off over the years. I do it, then I stop, then I do it, then I stop.

I only know one person that works at this firm; a gal I went to high school with. The owner of the firm is a man who looks to be a bit older than myself, and he has a range of women employees of all ages, which I see as a good sign.

I'm thinking of calling up the head man first, and not just send the information to him.

What do you think? Thanks!

Wise to seek others perspective.

Stretching one's self brings growth.
I know you are a hard worker and a very caring person.
What are your good husbands thoughts?

Have you talked with your gal pal at this firm, to see if she enjoys working there and if she likes the bosses leadership?
Have you spoken with other attorney's or researched him and his practice?

Driving that distance in the snow would be a challenge for me!

Apply, interview and think it over some more.
If it feels doable then go for it!

My husband will be fine with whatever I do, so no prob there. I will talk to my friend--she just recently went to work there, after working at a different firm for many years. I used to drive 4000 miles a month all the time, but gave that up about 8 years ago.

I did do some research on the firm.

SweepingBeauty--the floors are doing well, and haven't yet cracked up!

Thanks, all!

I always go with my gut feeling. Sounds like you're really needing a change. I would say try it. You can always change things up later! Good luck!
