Unemployed on resume?

Postby b_randombrandon » Tue Nov 01, 2011 2:59 pm

Hello all,

I quit my job last july and moved to southern california so I could take a prep class and start getting in-state residency as I want to go to a public school here. Now that the LSAT is done and my applications are for the most part complete, I've started interviewing for jobs and most likely will be offered a position this week. I want to submit my apps asap but I am not sure if I need to address the fact that I haven't been working since last july somewhere on my application? Or, would it be better to wait till I get a job so I can update my resume and then submit my applications?

If all it's going to take is a week to get a job then you might as well wait and so you can just say it on your resume.

If it's going to take an unknown amount of time just submit now and then update the law school with a new resume when you get a job.
