Q: I am five years out of law school. Since a clerkship, I have been a government litigator. Although I am reasonably happy with my job and I have pretty much unlimited job security in a lackluster job market, I have been getting itchy feet in the last year or so.

There is little opportunity for advancement here, and I am frankly getting a little bored with the practice area. So, I put out some feelers amongst friends both inside and outside government to find out what is out there and who is still hiring. They circulated my resume, and somewhat to my surprise, I have been asked in for a couple of job interviews with large law firms — one in New York City, one in Washington, D.C.
