Are most people feelin the pressure like I am trying to find a job for this summer? I'm in the top 25% of my class, go to tier 3 school, have five years of paralegal experience, a judicial extenership with a federal court, and am having trouble landing a good summer associate position at a firm. I'm lookin for jobs locally but there's nothing available. I particpated in FAll and Spring OCI with no luck. I've mass mailed 200+ law firms with no luck. Networkign thus far has produced nothing. I really would like to have a job offer before graduating, and without a job this summer, I feel like my odds are better at winning the lotto.
If you're a 2L w/o a job right now, what do you think? Is there a realistic chance, that as a 3L, you'll be able to find a job pre-graduation? Or will this anxiety continue after graduation and after you take the bar? Is there no mercy?
