Impressive that you figured this out, but again, proper responses to this thread should look like:

By the way, there won't be any NYU Tax LLMs applying for that $60k job.

Should I feel ashamed thinking that a 60k a year tax boutique job with benefits and perhaps a company car is a fine place to start your career?  I assume that you wont be working 80+ billable hours...

Let's see, get a CPA and a $60k tax job, or get a JD and LLM and a $60k tax job. Which should I choose? Which - should - I - choose?

a.) The only practical way to beat this challenge is to find a job listed on the Internet
b.) Top jobs are not posted on the Internet

Therefore, there is no way to beat this challenge

If you're going to work in Tax, you should just get a CPA and start making $60k out of college.

Dude, what don't you understand? No one who is worth their salt would be looking at craigslist for entry-level associate positions. Its NOT how you get a job. You don't even look at something like lawcrossing. You're looking at this from the typical 0L mentality. You have no idea how a legal job search really works. You don't get an entry level job from craigslist or monster.com.

Once again, if you were in lawschool, and had any dealings with a career services office, you would have figured this out by now.
