Get Guerrilla Tactics for Getting the Legal Job of your Dreams. Read it ASAP, but skim chapters that sound like they have advice that you can put into play right now re: how to manage your job search.Don't go get an LLM; you're worried about paying off loans now, adding another year or more of overpriced education isn't going to help. Even worse, it's not going to help you get a job, unless you want to be a tax attorney.And finally, network, network, network. It sounds like you've been relying on OCI to do your job search for you. That's fine when it works and/or the economy isn't in the crapper. But the game has changed, and even in great times, very few students get jobs through OCI (talking all law students across the country). You need to get out and put yourself out there. Go to local bar events, contact alums in the area that work in a practice area you're interest in to set up informational interviews (ask to take them out to lunch, buy them a coffee, meet for a drink after work, etc.). Meet as many attorneys as possible, follow up on contacts you make, ask their advice and about their careers. The Guerrilla book gives great networking advice - TAKE IT.And if you don't believe me, read Matthies' posts; he's gotten some fantastic jobs networking.
