You need to provide a bit more experience about your time as a prosecutor: how long were you there, how many trials, how many appeals, GJ work y/n, white collar work, how good was your law school, did you clerk?

Best way to find out is to do a LinkedIn search for former Prosecutors that have worked out of your office to see where they landed. I do that for all my jobs I've worked, real interesting to see where people land. Some of it will really surprise you.

Some of it goes right against common TLS knowledge. I've seen career paths from from document review to paralegal to in-house counsel at a top tech company (and person was not out of a top school). Or unranked law school to legal recruiter to cushy, well-paying government gig in a rich municipality. It can be much more telling than the general advice you get off law forums.

But generally advice you'll read here will b most often they leaving to a criminal defense firm or go solo. Otherwise, insurance defense and other litigation firms, midsize firms in litigation department. Sometimes the Federal Government.
