Enraged. Found out we have Symplicity reciprocity with the TTT in my home market, from another student, despite the fact that I just met with CSO about how to find more job openings there less than a week ago. Also found out that they have over 200 job postings... compared to our barely 40.

Don't let that discourage you. My job has nothing to do with anything on my résumé. Apply to anything you'd be willing to do.

This. When I relocated from the bay area to SoCal following the bar, I requested symplicity access for a local TTT. I was amazed at how many substantive job listings they posted. The amount of symplicity postings put my school's site to shame.

Just wrapped my interview with the hiring committee for DA's office. It was brutal; 15 or so prosecutors firing questions, hypos, and I had to conduct a voir dire (first time ever).

Hopefully this pans out as it is basically my dream job.
