I knew it, it wasn’t just me after all. Nothing was wrong with me. I didn’t have some fatally flawed personality that made me incapable of working in law. Turns out CareerBliss did a recent survey on job satisfaction. Guess what the rankings are for lawyers and the people who take care of them? Gee, I wonder why that is?
Associate lawyer ranked #1 unhappiest job in America, closely followed by the paralegal/legal assistant at #7. There is a very real reason for that and you don’t just have to take my word on it!
