The article focuses on career or job in Law. Many people fall into their career almost by chance. They may take the first seat offered to them or be following in the footsteps of their lawyer parents or going for law because a careers adviser at school suggested it when they were 18. But even if one liked law at 18, if one is now in his 30s it is hardly surprising if it no longer fits. One is a different person now. One may feel the need to reinvent one's career just as ones likes and dislikes have been reinvented since one was a teenager.
