Went to a interview today and got offered a position the same day. Personal injury work, high volume. 50k base plus bonus on cases that I close. Not much in law and motion, more on the negotiation side. Boss told me that bonus can range between 15 to 35k a year based on performance. Im super excited and freaked out about this as I don't want to fuck up and get booted.
Got the lead from craigslist. I start TOMORROW!!!!
I must say that once my bar admission passed the one year mark I got 3 interviews in 3 weeks. This from a tier 4 law school. Both jobs offered 50k plus bonus and benefits.
I will inform you all of how things go. My boss is super cool and has already texted me saying he's "excited to have me on board". When I saw his spiked hair I knew he would be totally cool. Within 5 seconds of the interview he said the word "bullshit" and was like fuck yeah this dude is cool. Very cool vibe in the office as the staff were eating asian food in the conference room. All of them waved at me with smiles. Subprime, perhaps, just got very very lucky.
Regardless of this great news I will continue blogging away against the law school scam. But for my family's support I would be drowning in loans as I wouldn't have been able to pay them during my 18 month job search. So many of my TTTT classmates have gone solo practitioner in their desperate attempts to make some money. I was lucky and was able to wait to get a job and some experience instead of hanging out a shingle from the start. So many of them going solo, not knowing what the hell they are doing.
Thats it for now. Super excited about tomorrow.
