I feel like I shouldn't help these 0Ls anymore. Unless by linking to this thread frequently. Somehow they really feel that their future is simply a combination of grades plus school. And they won't get it. Or that the reason apps are dropping and schools are easier to get into is because employment prospects are horrible. I never understood the human cost of the bimodal salary before. It is jarring to see solid people from great schools with good grades/ experience get so screwed by the economy. Yet they still blame themselves. And the Ols roll in every year.
Still, I think there are ways to find jobs as evidenced by this thread. I think a huge part of the job search is staying mentally strong. And there have to be avenues for finding work. I'm working through the thread to find stuff people did. But it takes a while. I think if we could come up with a solid guide for 3 L job hunting- like the thread for mass mailing - it would be helpful.
Hope this makes sense.not sober entirely. I may clean it up in the morning.
But also I honestly care about all you Internet strangers. You all deserve better.
