Is the Wrong Job Now Better than the Right Job Later?

By from Office
Recruiter
I recently worked with an attorney who was interested in one thing: moving to a certain city to join her partner, who was already living and working there. She was interested in several opportunities that I would not have anticipated would interest her: she was coming from a large firm and suddenly considering tiny firms and solo practitioners in addition to the large firms she was originally contemplating. She even suggested changing practice areas in order to broaden her net.
