Divine intervention

I can't imagine doing any job other than the one I'm doing right now.

In my first week of training, one attorney advised us that doing criminal defense work is not a job; it's a calling, an avocation. Thinking back to last fall, and all of my unsuccessful interviewing, I can't help but think that this was truly divine intervention. Even when I got the job offer from this agency, I tried to fight to do adult work instead of juvenile because I already have experience with juveniles. I fought tooth and nail to do anything but what I'm doing right now. And yet, what I'm doing right now is the only thing I could ever want to do.
