Top 3 Cool Jobs This Week: Jobs to Restore Your Youthful Glory
Feeling cooped up? Trapped? As a kid, didn't you think your life would be a bit more exciting than just working late for a job you don't love? Well, there's still time to make a change. No, you don't have to sell the minivan and get a sports car, or leave your spouse and start dating a college student. But you can find a job in an industry that's got a bit more sex appeal.
Let's not call it a midlife crisis. Let's call it a return to your youthful glory -- or just a continuation if they haven't yet passed you by. As part of our affiliate relationship with Indeed, we're bringing you the three coolest legal jobs of the week, jobs that will help you keep it together, without having to give up your youthful dreams.
1. Legal Counsel, Rolls-Royce
Nothing beats zooming through backcountry roads in a precision-engineered luxury car that costs more than most people's houses. Or blasting through skies in a turbofan-powered jumbo jet, or under the seas on a nuclear submarine. (Rolls-Royce makes a lot more than cars, you know.)
But working for Rolls-Royce is a close second. The famed car maker is looking for legal counsel to work with Rolls-Royce Power Systems, the division of the business that focuses on off-road diesel engine products. (Off-roading is cool too, I guess.) Key responsibilities include delivering "timely, cost effective, and technically correct legal advice," advising on commercial contracts and sales, and negotiating business agreements.
2. Counsel, National Football League
Let's face it, your sports hero days are long gone, if they ever existed at all. But that doesn't mean you'll be stuck coaching peewee football or screaming at Sunday night football from your couch. Get a little closer to the sidelines by working for the NFL.
The NFL is looking for attorneys who work can work closely with executives to help "structure, negotiation, draft and administer" commercial and operational agreements. Good negotiation skills are a must, and experience with trademarks, content licensing, or sports and entertainment law are a major plus as well.
3. Associate Legal Counsel, Retail Operations, Abercrombie & Fitch
You don't have to date someone half your age to feel desirable. Instead, consider working at a youth-focused company. And few companies are as youth obsessed as Abercrombie & Fitch.
The major retailer is looking for attorneys who can work on product regulatory, safety, labeling, environmental, supply chain, and other issues for its retail legal department. They're looking for attorneys with 2-4 years experience in firms or in-house, who can juggle a varied and demanding workload. Bonus: they'll probably let you keep your shirt on, though their retail models might not be so lucky.
