I'm probably going to take a year off before I go to law school, but am unsure as to what exactly I am to do during this time. I think I'll work but there's a big problem - any decent job seems to require that I stay for longer for one year. (That is, employers will prefer to hire someone who would stay longer so they'd lose less money trying to train them.) So everyone-1. what are some good jobs to consider? (Some criteria: I'd prefer not to be a paralegal and though I would very much like to go abroad, I don't want to teach English. I am planning on transactional biglaw, with a transfer to Asia sometime down the line.)2. should i conceal to potential employers that i intend to bail a year later for law school?Now Peace Corps would be awesome if they didn't force me to take 2.5 yrs off...

I'm kind of in this boat too...since graduating in May, I had a temporary position that lasted through last month. Now, I need to find a job until I start school again...not sure whether to mention my future plans in the cover letter or just wait to see if I get an interview first...? I feel kind of guilty implying that I could commit to a salaried position when I would be there less than a year most likely..not quite sure how to go about this.
What about Americorps?
Quote from: cosmo on November 19, 2007, 09:00:02 AMWhat about Americorps?I've looked at it. I really don't want to teach, and if I had to, I'd rather teach foreigners than inner city kids in America (easier to control, get to experience life abroad, etc). NCCC sounds semi-interesting, but it looks like a lot of manual labor. And I might want to do some long-term travel, so I'm afraid of the 10 month commitment.Anyone have general ideas on what to do?
