Not Hiring sign.jpgWe are receiving great information from the readers on no offers and we continue to follow up with the firms themselves. But one thing that has become very clear is that there will be a lot of 3Ls hitting the recruiting circuit this fall.
Last month, we touched on this issue in the context of OCI cancellation. This month we are hearing that even firms that continued on with OCI decided to flat out reject all 3L applicants, even though they maintained interview slots for 3Ls on their interviewing schedule.
In times like these you’d expect your office of career services to earn its paycheck. Sadly, that does not appear to be happening. No offered 3Ls have been frustrated by the lack of institutional support available at schools around the country.
But it is not like we are living through the Great Depression. There are still jobs out there for good students from good schools. This fall, 3Ls might need to think a little outside the box, but is there any doubt that full time employment awaits all who apply?
Staying on campus while potential employers come to you is a great perk associated with top flight legal education — a perk that is not at all representative of how most people find work.
Our advice is to be proactive in your job hunt. But we’d like to bring the collective knowledge of the ATL community to bear on the matter. If you are a rising 3L who just found out that you didn’t receive an offer, what should you do?
