I had this strange epiphany a couple days ago - "I'll never be a lawyer."
The only opportunity I do have is a law clerk position, but I have to be a Chicago resident. Of course, I was forced to move back in with my parents, giving up my Chicago residency. Damn credits cards and student loans.
Additionally, I have been sending
my resume very infrequently lately. There have almost no job postings for entry-level associates. The ones that I actually qualify for will most likely receive over 200+ resumes from desperate law grads. I usually never hear back (haven't so far). I have no interviews lined up.
The individuals who sat for the Illinois bar exam in February will be receiving their results soon, resulting in an influx of lawyers in Chicago. In other words, my chances are getting slimmer and slimmer by the day.
I have a gap on my resume since June.
I don't know what to do.
