Month 2 of the Job Hunt

It's actually been a month and a half since the bar, since I've been actively looking for a law clerk or attorney job. But only 2 weeks until we move into month 2 of my search.

There have only been 2 jobs I've been excited about, and neither of them called me back. I still have only had 2 interviews.

(I feel like I'm on Sesame Street and 2 is the number of the day :P)

My friend approached me about the possibility of starting up a law firm together. But it's not a right away thing; we find out if we pass the bar at the end of November, and if we don't, it'll be a re-try in February and another long wait until mid 2011. I don't know how much money that would require up front. It would require a lot more research on both our parts. I imagine we wouldn't really be making any money for a few years. And both of us have hefty loans.

I've been trying not to feel depressed, but it's getting more difficult to stave it off. I feel no desire to leave the apartment during the week. Or clean the apartment. Or do anything productive (other than look for jobs). I haven't been to the gym since before I had food poisoning.

Probably some human contact would cheer me up, but everyone I know is working during the week. My law school friends all fell back on the jobs they kept throughout school or had before school started - mostly jobs that have nothing to do with law.

I need someone to give me a swift kick in the pants. I need to use the time I have wisely, instead of feeling sorry for myself. I need to go to yoga more, so I can administer that kick in the pants to myself! ;)

I know a lot of recent law grads that are in the same boat as you. Hang in there.
