Well, I'm already taking barbri (which b/c of no job I'm paying for myself). I'm already committed to take the bar in the state. I'm perfectly fine with being limited to this state for 5 years until I can get reciprocity. So the location of it is fine, other than it's not near much.
My concern about the location is that I think that there will be NOTHING to do. It's not a career concern as much as it is a lifestyle concern. Also, I'm interested in doing a specialized kind of law (more of a policy/public interest kind of thing) later on, which would mean I would need to get close to a capital or a city that has options with that kind of work. But, that's further down the line.
I can see benefits to this job. It will pay decent, which will get me through the bad economy. It'll provide me good experience in a more slow paced enviornment. My only concern is I wouldn't want to live there forever.
Anyway, for a number of reasons, I want to be near something big eventually. I'm not in a hurry for that, but I also don't want to take a job which will limit what I can do later on.
(On a side note, how normal is it to go from one law job to another?)
