2L job search / Re: Want to get Job Out of State Need Advice
« on: January 24, 2008, 09:08:57 PM »
I am going to school on the east coast but am a CA native and the West is the Best. I was lucky to get a summer position in CA but it was difficult getting my foot in the door. I sent out around 50 resumes and cover letters to LA and SF firms in August. Nobody was interested even though I had good grades and law review. I think it was because in August I only sent stuff to vault 1-30 firms and I think they hired mostly from OCI. In Dec. I sent about 30 resume and cover letters to small and medium sized firms and government organizations (all unsolicited-I don't know who was hiring) and only heard back from 1 government organization which looked like a god job, but didn't pay so I had to ding it. I ultimately found the job I had because my career services offices tipped me off about a firm that was hiring. The hardest thing is finding firms that are hiring because I can't access the local schools job boards.

P.S. does anyone know how to access local schools job boards?

Thanks everyone for your support. I got a job offer today with a good firm. I'm sure it was law review that really sealed the deal, but I just tried to stay relaxed during the interview and I guess it worked.

I probably should do that. I have not done it up to this point because it felt artificial. I did not know about taping them though. I think that would really be a good thing to watch. I would like to see how I come across.

The hotel Milbank put me in was nice but average. The bad thing was that it was in midtown, whereas Milbank is downtown.

Hey, law school truckers,

I have good grades and a good resume, so I landed a boatload of interviews last fall, and received callbacks from most of them. However, I must have really bombed the callbacks as I have no offers yet for summer. I've started applying to second market positions, and had interviews there, but I haven't received a position. I'm starting to develop interview anxiety. I have an interview coming up, which I'm really banking on, but I am so nervous, because so far I haven't been successful. To those who feel like you interview well? Please give me some advice. Thank you.
