The Job Search

I have this thought that I may lay out some of my job search strategies, adventures and roadblocks on this blog. After all, I covered a lot of the actual law school drama and the next logical step is the job search. Will this be interesting? I don't know, but I can try!

Maybe for others out there, it will offer some comfort that I'm going through the same thing as you are, and for law students, maybe there will be some useful dos and don'ts I can provide.

For those not familiar with my area of interest, I want to find a job in the environmental field, energy or natural resources are among my top choices, but I am really interested in almost all related areas. I am not interested in litigation. I am interested in either private firms, government agencies, or private companies. I'd love to work for a non-profit, but those to whom I owe a great deal of money probably would not be thrilled with that option. :) Traditional attorney work, or something outside the norm is equally appealing.

I won't fall into well-known categories of New York accident lawyers, public defenders, or criminal prosecutors that we all see on TV, but I am confident there is something out there that will be really interesting, and help me pay those darn loans!
