I never imagined myself at a non finance firm. But given the job market, which still sucks, I have to take a new offer that I received from a securities law firm. This is far from my dream job, which was always to be a traditional financial analyst at a bank, HF, or PE firm. But realistically, not happening for me. Maybe unless I go to B School, which is definitely my short term plan.
I landed a job at a small law firm specializing in securities litigation. I don't know what this will do for my career, but I feel very uneasy that this will not read well on my resume. Does it seem too disjuncted to go from finance (I spent almost 2.5 years in finance) to this law firm? I'll be a "financial stock analyst" at the law firm, monitoring the news/market for potential case opportunities. I am 99% set on going back into finance- but is this a good interim job until B School? Or am I making a bad career move here?!
