Non legal employment while waiting for bar results

Postby Cooleytruthsayer » Mon Sep 09, 2013 2:42 am

Anyone else have to take non legal employment while waiting for bar results?

If so..............what is the WORST one you had to take and WHY?

-I suspect this may only be a Cooley dilemma, but it would be nice to see a few horror stories to make me feel more average.

LET THE COMPETITION.............BEGIN!

It's not a Cooley dilemma, people from all sorts of schools have to take on non-legal jobs while waiting to get a legal job. Is that what you meant, or did you have a legal job lined up but you can't start until you get your exam results?

Yeah, there are people from much better schools than Cooley that will never work a legal job period.

In school I heard a lot of smoke about how you can hire into firms before you even graduate and lock in the job before sitting the bar, etc,etc.

But yeah, every place that I have applied to has said "we can't hold a seat open, apply when you pass the bar".

I'd be willing to move out of state, but I am not willing to sit 50 bar exams just to have more options either.

I tried applying to paralegal jobs just to get a paid legal job (other than internships) on my resume but they all say "that is not what we are looking for" (mostly since they want crazy fast typists who have a decade experience)

Just kind of sucks.
