That's great news, and congratulations. It will be far easier to move to a firm doing environmental law in DC once you have a few years of experience under your belt, especially BigLaw experience. It's always easier to get a job when you have a job. DC is one of those towns like LA or NY that you never need to do much explaining about why you want to move halfway across the country to get a job there (compared to smaller markets, like even St. Louis, where if you had never...
This thread reminded me of the Marginal Revolution University classes I'd read about from Tyler Cowen and Alex Tabarrok. They are more like a textbook than a class, because they just have the videos sitting on Youtube, and they don't go at a certain time the way college classes do. I downloaded all the lectures from their Development Economics class to my phone and I've been listening to them on the way to work. I'll probably go through all of the lectures and then take...
I wouldn't close off these opportunities at the moment, they can probably make you connections, and you have only been out of school a year and a half, so it's not going to look weird if you try lots of different things. I'm not that familiar with environmental law private practice, but in other highly regulated areas these (and regulatory agency jobs) are pretty good jobs to have on one's resume.I'm not familiar with the DC market, but I'd say you missed your shot at...
Did just this a few months ago. For me, the actual installation was fairly easy, but the microwave is a little too deep for the cabinets, so it looks ugly. I thought I could mount it farther back than I could, but that would have required cutting backsplash tile that went up unexpectedly high behind the old unit, and I wasn't prepared for tile work. It may be a long time before i get around to cutting and installing the roof exhaust vent I had planned.....
wait, i don't get this, the Neiman Marcus product shot is your living room?http://www.neimanmarcus.com/product.jsp?itemId=prod56290018&eItemId=prod56290018&cmCat=search&searchType=MAIN&parentId=&icid=&rte=/search.jhtml%3FN%3D0%26Ntt%3Dtwisted%2Bvine%2Bfloor%2Blamp%26_requestid%3D19648
lol, I spent over a month in a house with a tankless heater last year. Every morning when I took a shower I had to wait 3+ minutes for hot water, then the heat would cut out without warning right when I had shampoo in my hair. This happened with the kitchen faucet as well.
You could go into the FBI directly with your law degree (of course you'd still start out making $50K a year and slowly work your way back up)
As a side note to cheesus, there are lots of contract manager /contract specialist jobs in the DC area with both the federal government and government contractors. They are probably getting harder to find in the current fiscal environment, but there have to still be more in DC than anywhere else.A small government contractor might be your best chance to get your foot in the door without experience. If you get one of these jobs you can either take the alternate career path...
