Just to let people know these kinds of posts are common for every industry. Don't say it is only law school, it doesn't really seem like anyone is saying that on this thread, but I just want to make a point that I have friends that got degrees in computer science who looked for months to get jobs, people with teacher's credentials who struggled to get jobs, people who want to be cops or firefighters that struggle to get jobs, clinical psychologists, M.D.'s., J.D's, Engineers, and down the line. It is very hard to get your start in a career no matter what it is. Don't get discouraged if you have a hard time finding a job education is for a lifetime and the odds are in the long run it will pay off, but there is the remote possibility it will not. I have not graduated from law school yet, but after I got my bachelor's I worked for 3 years and believe or not I was not handed a job when I got my B.A. I had to take a sh*t job when I first graduated, then 6 months later I got a cooler one and it just took time and there is a lot of disappointment, looking for a job is probably the most annoying thing in the world. I will expect a struggle to find a job when I get my J.D. it is a tough world out there.
They are also cool with the fact and know I plan to look for something else while doing this job (environmental public interest work) and I can work from home too. [...]
