Qualified in September 2020, unfortunately there wasn't an NQ position for me at the firm. I looked for jobs elsewhere and as the NQ market was almost non-existent, I took a temporary administrative job over Christmas. Now looking at NQ positions that may (or may not) roll out in the March intake. Worried that I will have had 6 months out of law as an NQ.
Should I take a step back and start applying for paralegal positions, just to get that foot back in the door? I know several other NQs in my position, which is worrying, given that jobs are incredibly competitive at the moment.
