I read in the JD underground thread you said you felt like you won the lottery, so can you shed some insight on the other kinds of jobs people are taking who were median at your school, or are they just jobless?
I looked for work in Georgia originally, but only got a few interviews. I worked at a firm part time in 2L and 3L, basically asked them to hire me, they said no. I am an nc native so I decided to move back home and study for the bar. I figured the only connections I had are here and I could stay with my family for the time being. So I got a job at the firm I worked for between college and LS. After I was sworn in, my boss offered me an associate job. The firm is small and the hours are generally 8:30-5:30, maybe staying late a few nights a week until 6:30 or 7:00. When a big trial is upcoming, obviously we will be preparing into the late night/early morning.
I'm not sure how the rest of my class is doing...a lot of people at the top got deferred, I know that a lot of people around the middle of the class on down are still looking for jobs. Not sure about how it is generally, but my impression is that a lot of folks are in some tight spots, what with loans entering repayment next month. I know several people have moved back in with their parents.
