I need a job.
Lately I've been so wrapped up in this "preparing for the fake world of the Bar" thing that I forget I could very well be homeless in three months. I just looked at my school's career services listing, and it was as useless as ever. 99% of the postings are always for lawyers with 3-5 years of experience, which they helpfully mark as "Alumni" (who am I then?). Why are they so concerned with finding jobs for lawyers who already have jobs? Shouldn't they be more concerned with how it will affect their sacred US News ranking when they come around in 9 months and I tell them I'm still unemployed and AU can suck me? Even the few jobs that are listed are typically 1) in Cambodia or 2) for some type of law practice that would make me prefer to jab a stick in my eye. As to the second point, when does the time come when I have to suck it up and apply for crap jobs I'll hate, just because I need a job?
There are a few other places I've been looking, but most of those sites aren't exclusively for lawyers, and that makes it hard to know if I'm qualified or super over-qualified. Sometimes I wonder if I should just break out the phone book and start mass mailing law firms around town.
Anyway, I'm not totally freaking yet, especially since I'm almost two full days behind the paced schedule, which makes me feel I have more pressing things to worry about.
