It's not six figures. It's mid-5 figures, state government agency, involves in-state travel on their dime. Spun my e-discovery (on my resume) into "best practices pre-trial preparation services" and discussed "impact on millions of people who might be affected by the outcomes of some of these cases, which can hinge on the evidence we review." Leaned heavily on my Bus Admin degree (prior to law) and spun case analysis as being similar to compliance.

Was told they'll be making decisions in the next few weeks. Take-away: E-Discovery will not keep you from getting interviews for compliance.

I hope you get it! Sounds like you did a good job selling yourself. That's not a natural thing for me at all. When I finally got out of doc review was when I went into an interview determined to tell them the story I wanted them to hear, their f*cking questions be damned.

I hope you get the job as well! Ps. I am trying to get a compliance job, I graduated last May and have not worked since. I am not licensed and was a history major undergrad. I have received rejection emails from various compliance jobs already. I did a few legal internships during law school. I need to find a job ASAP, and I always hear that compliance is a good JD preferred job. I am swimming in debt and my bank account is depleting quickly. Any advice? Maybe my cover letter is throwing them off, I basically slightly modified the cover letter I used for legal internships. Please feel free to share any sample cover letters fro compliance jobs.
