Dear Judged
DilemmaMy boyfriend is really confused about something. So I thought of writing to you, Judge. He’s just started at a new firm and thinks that he wants to get into another practice area. How would the bosses at his workplace respond to this?

Dear Gitz,

Well, I must say, I’m honored that you thought of me. However, I don’t have such good news for your boyfriend. If he’s just started at his new firm, his bosses will probably not respond well to moving him to another practice area immediately. Besides, how does he know if he even likes his current practice area if he just started—he should at least give it a chance and see if it grows on him. I would say his best bet would be to develop a good reputation at the firm and ask to be transferred in a year or so, should he so desire.
