There’s a good chance that you will have an opportunity to move laterally to a new firm during your first years of practice. You might get a call from a recruiter, someone you know from law school, or someone who was on the other side of a case. When the call comes, the next step is figuring out what you want in a deliberate and thoughtful way. Take time to understand what you really want and if this new job will help get you there.
