After graduating from law school, Yang began his career as a corporate attorney at Davis Polk & Wardwell in New York City. Yang later described the job as "a pie-eating contest, and if you won, your prize was more pie". He left the law firm after five months, which he has called "the five worst months of my life."

Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg's counselor Howard Wolfson suggested that Yang "would make a very interesting candidate" for mayor of New York City; Yang said, "it's incredibly flattering to be thought of in that role.... We haven't ruled anything out at this point. I will say I'm more attracted to executive roles than legislative ones because I think you can get more done." (Source: en.wikipedia.org)


The Forward Party will purportedly endorse candidates from either party in the 2022 midterms, as long as they support these principles. Yang says the party is not interested in running a candidate for president, but is focused on trying to decrease partisan gridlock in Congress and state legislatures. The party's website says it may hold its own primary for the 2024 presidential election if the right demand for a third-party candidate arises.
