Technically I'm seeking advice for my boyfriend... My boyfriend just graduated from law school and had a job lined up at a firm in town, he was supposed to be moving down here from the Chicago area in October. Well, his job just fell through this morning, the firm told him that they didn't have enough money to hire another associate (unexpectedly low case load I guess). So I'm bummed beyond belief, and my boyfriend is nervous about his future and our future, it's a mess... I know my boyfriend's doing what he can to get another position, but practicing lawyers out there, do you have any advice? Is it a matter of going firm to firm and passing out resumes? I can't figure out whether firms advertise positions or not (he says he's been searching some website for listings, but it's not very helpful). He's trying so hard to get a job in my town (I live in a medium-sized college town), but it's hard seeing as there aren't that many positions out there. Is it better for him to give up hope on living in the same town with me and just start applying in Chicago? He really doesn't want to work for a huge firm, but at this point he has to pursue any avenue that he can. Any help or advice at all would be appreciated, I'll pass everything along to him.
