Out of all the inquiries I receive from attorneys as a recruiter, no small number are from attorneys who, for various reasons, are looking to switch practice areas at some point in their career. Perhaps they were a general commercial litigator who discovered a passion for employment law after getting assigned to an employment dispute, or it might be an attorney who had hoped to do tax law but fell into general transactional work because no firms were hiring tax lawyers when that attorney graduated (this is fairly common with would-be corporate attorneys who came out of school during the economic crash and had to take an alternate practice group position or none at all).
