Q: I graduated from law school and passed the bar in 2008. Unable to find a full-time attorney position, I started interning at a real estate development firm. First, I worked with the GC. Currently, I’m working with development quasi-legal work.

I’m hoping to stay in real estate, land use, entitlements, and development-related areas of law. If I stayed on as a project manager non-legal, will that reflect negatively on future opportunities to get an attorney position at a law firm? In other words, if my first full-time job out of law school is non-legal, will law firms be reluctant to hire me for an attorney position?
