Sometimes programs are created to meet political goals rather than rationally thought out. This position was an extremely demanding and rewarding opportunity which involved applying most of the skills attained in undergraduate and graduate education. It was exciting making a program work. Unfortunately the underfunding required too many personal sacrifices for my children to be able to continue it for an extended length of time.
The Ministry of the Solicitor General is an excellent place to work. There is a collaborative culture amongst co-workers and everyone understands our 'mission'. The pay is mid-range but fair and the work is rewarding.
