Is it wise to keep looking for job?

Have a good 2L summer associate position lined up. But I am a little worried weather I can turn it into a permanent job offer. Is it wise to participate in job fair such as Loyola University Chicago School of law interview program as a 3L? Will my summer firm hesitate to give out offer if they know I am still looking for other firm jobs?

Why do you think you'll have difficulty turning it into a permanent job offer? Does your firm historically no-offer much of their SA class? If it is a historically 100% offer or close to 100% offer firm, then I don't see why you think you'd have a better chance at Firm A compared to Firm B.

Seems like you are being a bit paranoid.

It is 100% in the past two summers, just in case something happened. I guess I am a little bit paranoid.

Yes, you are being paranoid. Instead, be confident and mindful of your work and you shouldn't have any problems.

What good would finding another firm do? You aren't gonna beat 100%.
