....Should I Be Worried Yet?

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Mar 06, 2018 3:25 pm

I'm 3L at a T2 school with slightly better than average grades and I have not received an offer of employment. When should I start panicking and does anyone have advice on applying JD advantage jobs?

It'd also be great if anyone had suggestions for where to apply. I'm having trouble finding places hiring.

Maybe. But most people where I am, T25, who are not working in larger firms (all 5% of them) are either clerking at small firms or waiting to pass the bar.

Many small firms won’t hire you until you pass the bar.

This. If you are waiting around expecting an offer before graduation or passing the bar, it is unlikely. Firms and small gov't jobs generally do not hire until after you have your license.

Apply anywhere and everywhere. Even firms and agencies that do not have job postings.

You will probably not get a job before graduation. Whether or not you should be worried about that is up to you.
