  • 13. After what I have learned about being a Corporate Attorney,I think I would like having that job. Yes, it is a lot of hard work, but itis worth it. The pay is really good and that means if I really wantedto, I could retire earlier than most people. Also, I think that whenpeople say lawyers have good morals, it is a big generalization.Some do not have good morals, but there are people like that inevery job. A thing I like about this job is that all kinds of differentlawyers work in one building. This one firm is like a team. Everyoneworks for the firm and does everything for the firm. I can relate tothis because I play football. Also, the competition is really high, andhaving pressure to perform is not a problem for me.
