If I just start working, I can earn $3-4k per month.

My question is what opportunities can I get for a legal related role even I do not do part B + tc? Is being called to bar so important?

When I do not get retained, are other law firms keen to hire?
Can you provide us with more details? Are you a local or overseas graduate? If you are local, a decent 2.1 or 2.2 should be able to get you a non-practising career in the public sector.
