Let's say you've decided to move into a non-legal career after years of working as an assistant in a law firm Will the hypothetical employer reject your application on the ground that you lack the relevant job experience for the position you're currently applying for? What should you do?

Depends on what you are applying for.

I'd look at what you'd done and figure you must be quite intelligent.

Intelligence = able to learn something new.

@neologist,
dont be stoopid. NON-LEGAL means like working for something other than a law firm.
ILLEGAL means that she'll work for Vinnie

I hate to break this to you farmer, but male hookers generally don't cater to the fairer sex.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

@tamara123454,
Well, you can't become a nurse this way without training, but another office job shouldn't be a problem. Paralegals (or at least very well-trained and experienced legal secretaries) are people who can research and write.

Maybe just go for being a Chippendale Dancer?

You can look, but don't touch?
