Got an e-mail and then a call from a legal services girl/man Friday place, that a law firm in DC is looking for someone for Japanese document review and would I be interested.
I have seen similar elsewhere and told the recruiter I am not a barred attorney, nor even have a JD degree for that matter, but if the work is what I strongly suspect it is and that if the lack of the aforementioned is not an issue, then I am interested.
The pay is decent too; $50 an hour which is about what I was making per hour before leaving Large International Automobile Manufacturer #1 (though there were also the bennies; health insurance, 401k etc.). The work also will only run until the end of the year and would require me to go into the city, something that I don't miss.
First the translation gig and now perhaps this possible gig. Irony of ironies I'd say. Never thought my skills and experience would prove useful in this manner.
