I have been an attorney for the past 7 years and despise it. My undergrad degree is in business administration, but I've never used it.
One thing I've noticed that I enjoy is when I'm asked to organize or index information. I've created several indexes to help me find information I need personally or professionally. I've never taken any formal coursework in this area. I also like to index information I find on the Web in blog or notebook form so that I can forward things on to people when asked or post it to help someone.
I know librarians are very involved in information management, but I would like to avoid going back to school if possible. I also know there are database management jobs, but I don't have any IT experience. I would be willing to learn the IT stuff on my own if necessary.
Are there any jobs where a law or business degree would allow me to do what I propose?
