Hello Everyone -
Just looking for some general advice. I am currently articling in criminal defence in Alberta. My employer has not yet given me a firm offer of being hired back as an associate, but have made some comments on me starting up my own practice once I am called.
This scares the crap out of me to say the least. I want to start looking for an associate job, or ideally, would like to apply to work with the Crown. I've spoken to a couple of people that work out of the Provincial Crown's in Calgary and they have told me that a willingness to relocate is the best way for me to taken seriously as a good candidate.
Now I am totally willing to move around in Alberta if that means that I could potentially get a job with the Crown, but I am wondering if anyone else has any experience with doing this (defence -> Crown). I want to get a feel for the likelihood and/or mere possibility of this even happening so any input would be greatly appreciated.
