What advice can you give a recent law school graduate who needs a job?

Any tips will be appreciated. I feel discouraged and desperate.

Paid positions are rare, so volunteer to get experience. Check out your local bar association for non-profits and other opportunities. Also consider unpaid internships for experience.

Network! You have just graduated law school. Ask professors and other professionals around you for advice and if they know if anyone is hiring. Networking can be the best way to find any job.

For a recent law school graduate, my advice is to go to all the law firms and drop off your resume till you get a call


Answer by  Marsha (2337)

Hang in there and keep looking. Look beyond law firms. Look at other jobs in which a law degree would be useful.

It may seem odd but try volunteering to work at the firm you want to get into. Offer a limited period of time. Tell people you're looking for a job.

It's a very tough economy so don't be too hard on yourself. Make sure your friends and former professors know you're looking for a job.

If you just graduated, chances are that you have not yet passed the bar exam. Passing the bar will open a lot of doors for you. Beyond this, just be persistent and don't be afraid to take a job that is not what you originally wanted.
