Apart from OCI which is only availabe to the top 10 % of students at most schools, could you please point us to the magical legal database of plush lawyer jobs, with dozens of postings for every city? The fact is that if you haven't secured a job through OCI or a judicial clerkship, C-list is what you're stuck with.
The job you referred us to isn't a plush job. Any city, county, state, or federal website posts employment opportunities for those of us who are interested in public sector jobs. I'm not suggesting it's easy to get those jobs, but the govt is a source with a lot of legal job prospects. Netwroking helps too. Attending meetings for local organizations, volunteering if you can for non-profits and I've heard attending local bar orgs is very helpful in making contacts.
Look we've all heard over and over again about how terrible it is out there and why we shouldn't go to ls. The vast majority of people on here are aware of the risks of attending schools outside of the T20ish range and aren't going to be talked out of it by posts like yours, despite your good intentions. The rest are shooting for, accepted to or attending T20ish schools and will most likely not be struggling much to find jobs in 3,4,5+ years, even if that means less taking jobs with sub-100K salaries. How many times do we have to hear this. We get it.
