We were actually in discussions to start a blog, so this is a possibility.

And that's a great idea actually, because at least then it might look like its a 6 month fellowship that's ending and that I'm seeking a new, permanent legal position, although if they aren't willing to do that, what you said as well about the training and them wanting more experience could also be fine in an interview. I feel you on that job search now though, it's weird to finally have landed a job, felt I was doing reasonably well, getting a paycheck, and now it's back on not just to the job search but one with a very very time sensitive deadline, with a far more geographically limited scope after relocation costs that I can't really afford to go through again, and trying to avoid looking like a red flag when pursuing another legal position.
Yup, it is rough, but all i can say is good luck. So good luck!
