Hello. Ií ve just got a useless law degree. Thankfully got free ride. I dont plan to sit for the bar exam because i realized i dont want to be an attorney or practice law even if you paid me one million. My undergrad was major in english and french, minor in advertising. 10 years of fashion modeling under my belt, but obviously not a superstar, although i love fashion and apparel industries. I thought of acting but i have an accent. I play some decent piano but not a virtuoso. I Was thinking about moving overseas and working somewhere in a us embassy or consulate, perhaps as a fraud investigator or maybe a womens rights advisor in UN or the like. I speak four languages and pick them up fast ( i guess my lingustics background helps). Please advise on a career path. I have dual citizenship and in my early 30s. Five kids ( i love children). My problem is i am not entrepreneural. How do i develop this trait?

You love children, upgrade yourself in psychology and find a job to work with children as a counsellor.

Many senior HR managers have law degrees, although you might need some additional education to start onto that path.

Various policy analysts in state or federal agencies are also non-practicing lawyers.

Guardian ad litem. You don't need to be an attorney but your degree and parenting experience will be a big help.

I am working on and off between pregnancies thanks to my modeling agency. But this is not a stable,source of income unless ur a supermodel. My agent advised branching out into tv or film for career longevity purposes but my accent seems to be a hindrance. As far as my current occupation is concerned, its getting harder and harder to compete with fresh 13 year olds when ur in ur early 30s and a mom of five.

I forgot to mention i love traveling and all stuff international, cosmopolitan, global citizen. I can speak 4 languages although two of them only at the intemediate level, but i am very good at foreign langauges and pick them up superfast if i get serious about it ( my first degree - masters in linguistics, another allegedly useless degree for dumb kids who are not bright enough for math or physics

I was considering jobs at us embassies and consulates abroad or perhaps some international human rights organization like UNited Nations - how hard are those to get in general with my background?

My thought will sound a little strange.
Get a job. It doesn't really matter much what the job is, just get the job that appears to have some sort of possible upward trajectory. Make the most of it when opportunity presents itself and don't be afraid to relocate and move around. The future will take care of itself.
I know a senior executive at 3M who took a menial job at 3M right out of college, took care of business, dressed well, got himself recognized and moved up steadily. My own career path was so different from yours that it is irrelevant, but suffice it to say I moved up, moved around, and found a career in unexpected places. I retired in 2010.

BOL!

What are the additional requirements to become this type of a policy analyst? Do you need to get nw unpaid internship for an extended period of time aka pay ur dues?🤔

How does having to take care of five kids might fit into this equation? I would need to outsource that to someone else, whom i may not trust. I need a job with a work life balance for sure that would at the same time utilize my other strengths and faculties. I applied for some random jobs just for the heck of it - got denied everywhere ( im talking garment sorter at a fashion retailer warehouse center)😔
