Even though compliance jobs mostly just require a bachelor's degree, it seems as though once you get experience doing the job for a while you can make a pretty decent amount as a career. Also, these past 3yrs won't seem to have been entirely a waste seeing that you'll be using your legal background/skills to some degree on the job. Any thoughts??
There was a window last summer where I thought I'd be in a compliance/in house hybrid position post LS. Pharma is booming on the consulting side, look for compliance startups in your area. The work is boring but the hours are easy and you'll be brought in as a 2-3 year associate with the LS background.
Curious as to how you go about finding these?
They happened to post on our job site. Google is your best friend. Just google the area and the type of consulting (Philadelphia pharmaceutical consulting) and go to their LinkedIn (a lot don't have employee profiles on their website) and find the JDs. I think a fair number of big firm lawyers end up in the hybrid consultant/IHC roles now. Clients pay a lot to get the OK from a lawyer who worked in the industry at a decent firm. Just gotta get one to take you under their wing for awhile.
