I’ve only put in a few applications in my job search so far, but I’m wondering if I should look for a different type of job. There doesn’t seem to be many job openings for attorneys and so far I’ve just gotten the one interview and they never bothered to contact me about my status after the interview. At this point I can figure out I wasn’t hired. I’m wondering if I should set my sights on a more easily obtainable job.
I delivered pizza before law school and during law school so now that I’ve finished law school I could probably get another pizza delivery job. This isn’t the type of job that I ultimately want, but at least I would be making some money. A pizza job or other entry-level job wouldn’t be very impressive on my resume, but not having a job doesn’t look good on my resume either.
It is possible that I might not even be able to get a pizza job. A potential employer would have to wonder if I would leave as soon as I found a better job. And I would have to admit that I would leave for a better job. If I do take an entry-level type job I will still be looking for a job that utilizes my law degree.
For now, I am going to continue looking for a legal job. I’ll also look for a part-time job that can bring in a little money. Hopefully, I can find something more professional than delivering pizza that would be ok to include on my resume.
