That sounds like a great gig. And you're right, I am planning to take the bar. I guess I am still holding out some hope that I may find something legal that I won't hate, and part of me just wants to have passed the bar even if I go the non-legal route (I guess there is no real logic to this). So I guess what makes most sense is to keep looking for a legal job, and to start applying for immediate start, non-legal jd preferred stuff once I am still unemployed after the bar?
Best part is, it pays slightly better than most firms in the location that I'm working in other than the "big law" firms that no one outside of T14 can get.
I plan on taking the bar, but doing so in February or July 2015. That way I can study at night over a longer period of time. I dunno *shrug*
It can't hurt to apply now and talk to some people about your timeframe. You never know what hiring timeframes are. Then, if you find a job you really like, you can option to start earlier if they need it.
In the end, its all about what you want. If you really wouldn't be happy working at a firm, why do it?
