I've been applying for a state gig for a few years, doesn't even have to be as a lawyer, I'd be happy to be support staff, I'm just burned out of private practice and can't see myself spending the next 30-40 years doing this stuff. I apply for every judiciary job that comes up and never hear back.
I've thought about applying to serve on an ethics board - seems like its some extra work, but do-able. Has anyone ever done it before? What was it like? Also, would it help in any case with my trying to get a state job? I don't wanna come across the wrong way, that wouldn't be the only reason I'd be doing it, but I'd like to know if it could help any. If not, if anyone has any other suggestions - I'd be very grateful. I realize it may be a few years before I get hired, but I'd like to spend those years doing something to strengthen my resume.
