.Not something I want to do (assuming I get one of these types of jobs) but I need to eat in September so I will do anything legal related or anything that pays. Seriously thought of working at Home Depot to make ends meet for the time being, assuming they would hire me
I really don't understand why so many young people LOL at working retail. I have a client who works at Micheal's Crafts as a manager and makes $21 an hour and gets health bennies for her kids. It's ultra-low stress, she pretty much just hangs around, chats with customers, etc. She only has a high-school diploma and is 26 years old. She's in much better shape than the average non-Biglaw/non T14 law grad, who has to beg/grovel for that same salary to grind bale after bale of makework, cut n' paste shitpaper and usually no health bennies and no real future whatsoever.
Home Depot is an easy gig but they don't give an employee discount which sucks, although if you make pals with some of the contractors they might take you on as a laborer. If you can learn a decent amount of "handyman" type skills, you'll be much richer & more marketable and have much better quality of life than being a shitlaw schumck. In my area of NJ most handyman-type guys charge 35 to 40 an hour, often getting paid in cash. And their workday is much lower stress and more interesting than gutter-sucking shitlaw.
