But for now, I will see if I can squeeze in time to study for the QLTS so I can work in London or something.

Yes, the consulting/IB life (i.e. weekly flights in and out) doesn't really happen for lawyers (to me, this is a blessing).

If you are looking for a more international lifestyle, moving to the offices in another country and working there for a few years is probably your best bet.

Perhaps itís due to the effects of WFH but I really do want to quit my current job and get out of singapore. Itís just an idealistic thought but would appreciate any helpful comments. Thanks!

To add on, I understand there are tons of jobs out there that require business travel like even management consultancy and events planning. But I still wish to stay in the legal industry or perhaps transfer to a legal-related role.
