Why Being A Realtor Can Be Fun [00:00:00] I haven't had a job since 2019 when I worked for the office of Attorney General in New Jersey. I'm trying to return to the legal world as I do have my JD. What advice can you give me during this transition period? I'm currently working as a realtor. One of the things that I would say is, just something for fun on the call, but realtors can do very well. Especially in this environment, I don't know that I would want to go back if you enjoy being a realtor. I think you can do very well financially as a realtor and it actually could be a lot of fun. I'm not saying you should, of course, but I'm just amazed at how well have some real estate agents can do in the business. But my advice would be if you were working in that position would be to apply to as many firms as you possibly can doing the work that you're doing. I have found that it's always been my belief, and I've done a lot of webinars, that you send a lot of applications on your own, especially with people that don't have openings can be very effective. The problem is if you put yourself into competition with other people that are applying to firms with openings, the firms with openings are more likely to hire [00:01:00] people that are coming directly from law firms or practicing law at the moment and not in a completely different profession. So, anytime you go into another profession, being a realtor is another profession. What that does is that makes it look like you don't want to practice law or you give up or just don't like it. And frankly, being a realtor could be fun. I think it would be great meeting people and stuff, and I think there's nothing wrong with that, but it's up to you. My advice would be that you really should do what you can to apply to lots of places and preferably places probably without openings and, if you worked in the government before, I don't see any reason why you couldn't get any other type of government job as well. Depending on why you left, you could work in the federal state governments.
