Thanks to the accessibility of the internet and the purchase protection available for online transactions, lease assumptions have become a popular option for early lease termination. Online services like , , or allow you to advertise your lease to prospective buyers. People who are looking to get out of a lease are matched up with people who want to take over the lease for the remainder of the term.

Temporary employment is another method of gaining valuable work experience. The temporary employee (“temp”) is usually placed in short-term assignments through a legal staffing agency. Temporary employees generally earn less than their permanent counterparts because the legal staffing agency takes a substantial cut of their hourly pay. Because they are not employees of the company or firm for whom they are working, temps do not receive benefits or other perks of employment. However, benefits may be offered through the legal staffing agency.
