Job Search / Nonlegal Job Search
« on: June 14, 2008, 03:33:00 PM »
I graduated with a JD/MBA from a regional/local school with good grades in both programs.  I may continue to look at nonlegal jobs.

Some have said that the law degree helps, because you bring a unique brand of knowledge and intellect.

Others have said the law degree overqualifies the applicant.

I would imagine it would have a lot to do with the type of nonlegal job, the salary, and how tangentially related it is to the skills a law degree builds.

I also do not understand how some claim that omitting a JD from a resume is beneficial!  Even if it were perceived as a bad thing, there would be a huge chronological gap on your resume.

Any feedback on all this would be appreciated.  The job search is frustrating.
