US Bankruptcy Judge or General Counsel to Governor

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Feb 08, 2013 6:03 pm

No special affinity for bankruptcy or government work. Just want the best looking job for my resume.

Bk judge would require me to move 2,000 miles away back home and drive 1.5 hours each way, but the home market is where I want to be post-grad.

General counsel to governor would allow me to stay where I am. Other consideration: I'm looking toward transferring, so logistically going with GC to Gov/where I'm living now would make things easier if that comes to fruition.

stay exactly where you are and enter government
1. The type of work and the people you will be working with, in terms of background, will be more diverse. Bkptcy is very specific; it is a clear cut specialization. The work would be more repetitive as compared to working with the government.
2. Think about it, a recommendation from a Governor's office under your belt. sweet.
