All the non-law professional careers which I personally know law grads have pivoted into:

(1) Civil service (MFA, MTI, EDB)
(2) Business Development roles, as mentioned above, for a range of MNCs
(3) Mid-tier Consulting (but this will almost definitely require some self-study on your part, maybe also an internship/probation period)
(4) Compliance in banks/finance depts

Would appreciate some good suggestions thanks!
- join the public service

Bootcamps arenít going to make you a coder. The statistics by bootcamps arenít an accurate representation of the employability and the value of the bootcamps. Donít be misled.

How does one go into biz dev roles though, do we need sound knowledge of statistics and other software like Scrum and agile?

BD roles focus on driving business growth and mainly fall into two categories: partnerships (sales) and expansion opportunities (which needs a lot of skills on data and statistics). It is good if you have such skills but many hirers apparently are not too concerned if you have the relevant background when youíre starting out at a junior level. This is because most skills such as CRM specific exp are taught when youíre on the job.

Plus itís best if you start out when youíre young and youíll have plenty of time to climb up to an executive level. Average pay for account executive at an MNC like Salesforce is about $9k.
