The opinion on whether working in LPO is challenging enough for young lawyers is divided...some people regard working there as being a mere glorified Law clerk but some others regard it as getting exposure to US Laws which has its own unique benefits...at the end of the day its how you yourself look at it n whether find it stimulating enuff or not...different strokes for different folks...what some might find boring to others might be the most interesting profession..n i believe one can create one's own intellectually stimulating environment anywhere. People regard my own profession of teaching monotonous, boring & not at all challenging...but i certainly don't agree...i can't imagine myself being anything but a teacher but there are people who come n say to me on my face...hey with your qualifications you could get a good job ( implying indirectly that teaching is a bad job!!) or you are wasting your talents (if I have any talent whatsoever it is teaching well, so actually i'm using my talent) or ok this is a good job for females (which pisses me off the most...cos I'm not into teaching cos its easy or something but for the love of it n for me its as challenging as being an astronaut thankyou very much)...so its the way LPO job cuts for you personally.

What I feel in general with reference to finding a job in recession is that one needs to scale down one's aspirations a bit when the external environment becomes a little less friendly...I mean everyone has dreams of landing up a cushy, well paid, intellectually stimulating job but life isn't what you think it's going to become-life is what it becomes. Part of it stems from choices we make, but part of it is simply an unfolding adventure that we must choose to reject or adapt to as it present itself to us..

.what I've found in my interation with youngsters is they have very high aspirations n want instant success...everything given on a platter to them...n don't want to slog it out...i could be wrong but i feel its this way with youngsters today....here's a joke about this attitude which I find very true n mildly funny

Reaching the end of a job interview, the Human Resources Person asked the young MBA fresh out of college, "And what starting salary were you looking for?"

The candidate said, "In the neighborhood of $125,000 a year, depending on the benefits package."

The HR Person said, "Well, what would you say to a package of 5-weeks vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental, company matching retirement fund to 50% of salary, and a company car leased every 2 years - say, a red Corvette?"

The MBS sat up straight and said, "Wow!!! Are you kidding?"

And the HR Person said, "Certainly, ...but you started it."
