If you're looking to make a change in your career, there are plenty of jobs out there. But not all of them are cool jobs, the kind of jobs that will bring you interesting work, around interesting people, in an interesting industry. These three are those jobs.

This week, as part of our affiliate relationship with Indeed, we're bringing you the three coolest legal jobs we can find, and they're a motley crew, covering everything from tech, to contract management, to professional ice hockey.

1. Staff Attorney, National Hockey League

If you're a lifelong puckhead but never thought you could make it out on the ice, this could be the job for you. The NHL is currently scouting new lawyers for their team.

They're looking for a transactional attorney who will provide legal support primarily around sponsorship and licensing deals, along with some legal support on entertainment and production matters. You don't need a 100 mph slapshot to apply, but a few years of corporate transactional experience can help.

2. Corporate Counsel, Amazon

If you're more of the bookish type (or the "ordering random home goods late night after a few glasses of wine" type) this gig at Amazon could be for you. Not only would you work for one of America's biggest tech companies, you'd be part of Amazon's Alexa division. Yes, that Alexa: the AI voice technology behind Amazon's Echo.

Amazon is looking for someone to counsel the Alexa business on issues ranging from licensing to technology to regulatory matters. A strong understanding of intellectual property and privacy law is key, as not only is Alexa on the cutting edge of technology, she's also always listening.

3. Associate Contracts Manager, Google

Speaking of tech companies, Google is looking for an associate contracts manager to join their "Knowledge Legal" team. This team works to provide legal support to Google's search and assistant products and involves working closely with product counsel, business development, and product teams to negotiate commercial contracts.

If you're interested in crafting innovative legal approaches and follow Google's mantra that "20th century laws don't always solve 21st century problems," this could be the job for you.
