If you are worried that your ability to speak English might be a problem, then it probably will be.

It's been a few months since I originally posted, and I just thought I'd update my situation.  
 
I am still at the same job, doing the same thing, but I've decided that I'm going to try to move to DC.   (I was living in the Southeast.)  I've been putting in a ton of hours under contract at my current firm (billed 200+ last month), but I realize that I am getting nowhere fast doing this.  
 
I'm gunning for a position with the PTO.  I applied online and will hopefully hear from them soon.  Wish me luck gentlemen and a really late "thanks for the advice."

Why don't you try to become inhouse counsel to a chemical company like Dupont?
