Sucks even more since managing partner loves me and wants to hire me, but "doesn't know if they will churn up Enough business." What sucks even more is he refuses to make calls and in good word since he says he doesn't want me to look for a job until he's 100% certain they can't make me an offer in November.
That sucks, and I'm really sorry this happened to you. A similar thing happened to me. My advice would be to massmail as much as possible in the hope that you get an interview somewhere, and that this interview causes your current firm to give you an offer (or the new firm if you just want to get out of there). I did this, and was extremely open about how many interviews I had and when I had them. After 2-3 interviews, the firm ended up offering me because they were afraid of losing me.
That said, you know your firm best, so assess whether you think this strategy might work for you. I can definitely see it turning off some people and firms.
