Re: Anyone else on the job hunt?
I'm a 25yo lawyer, have been working in the legal area since I was 18 and I recently moved to a new city. I can't find any job and I've been working as a waiter for the past two months because I ran out of money, so I'm pretty much like you. Waiting may be fun and relaxed, but it's by no means a career, so I'm kind of desperate to find something in my area. I haven't even been getting reject e-mails, simply no responses at all, and I've pretty much sent my resumé to every law firm in the city.
The ridiculous part is that there are so many lawyers in the city that I've only seen three or four ads on the newspaper from law firms that are hiring, and I earn twice as much as they offer by working as a waiter.
