S/O Finding a job right now

Post by Anonymous User » Thu Apr 23, 2020 8:18 pm

I'm currently a law clerk in a state where clerking is essentially the norm to getting an associate position. I'm clerking for the civil division with a judge that does the complex business docket. I've been looking for a job since January, but obviously the current situation is making it very difficult. I am admitted in my state and am in the process of getting admitted in the neighboring state. I have some experience from internships etc. but nothing outstanding.
I would be happy with a job in the AG's office or a small to mid law firm. Not looking for big law. I went to a T-30 and was top 50%. However I did do particularly well (A's and A-'s) in multiple healthcare and employment law classes and I'd be thrilled to work in either of those areas.
I've been mainly targeting those areas but am open to others. However I definitely do not want to do PI or ID.
Any suggestions?
Prior to covid I had been getting interviews etc. But obviously now I'm not and I can't even go on the interviews I did line up. I don't even know how to reach out to people regarding interviews given the current situation. Looking for any and all advice!!!
