Job Search / Re: What is my best option at this point?

Thanks for the advice, everyone.  I actually read through Guerrilla Tactics this past summer, but admittedly I didn't really follow through on all of the advice.  (For others who read it, did you actually go to bar events and other things like that?)  I've actually heard that the summer internship with Chik-fil-a's in-house counsel is a great experience, so I may look in to that... thanks #2. 

Job Search / What is my best option at this point?

So I've basically struck out on OCI interviews. I'm on law review at a T2 in a secondary market, but only was able to get three callbacks and got dinged from each. What is my best option for employment at this point? I've already decided that I'll probably interview again next fall, but I'd like to find a good job for this summer because many firms don't hire 3L's.  Should I look into mid-size firms? Government jobs? Any other good options?

I can attest to what the poster two above me said.  I'm in the top 10% but not top 5% and it's been hell trying to get an offer from anywhere.

Thanks, I think I'll just ask someone from each firm I have an offer from.  I justed wanted to be sure that there wasn't some source elsewhere that I could get reliable info from.

Job Search / Pay Scales

Is there any source to find out what a firm's pay scale is?  I've been able to find starting salary on NALP, but it seems to be a lot harder to find anything saying how much it increases each year.

Is there any harm to following up too early after a callback, assuming they didn't already tell you when to expect a decision from them?
