The ultimate companion for lawyers going through the early stages of career change – available for sale here.
Dream of making partner at your firm? If so, then this isn’t for you. (Same thing applies if you adored every single second of law school.)
If, however, you were only going to do the lawyer thing until you figured out what you were really going to do with your life… then you’re in luck.
This is the ultimate companion for lawyers who want to escape their profession but are skeptical about career counsellors. It is based on years of experience helping hundreds of confused lawyers at Escape the City, a community of motivated corporate professionals who want to ‘do something different’ with their careers.
Easy to read, it has inspiring stories, frameworks from internationally leading career change experts, and immediately actionable tips and exercises to help you build a strategy for your transition.
