Finding a job as a lawyer is incredibly difficult these days for young law school graduates, and desperate times call for desperate measures. Some new lawyers have been forced to take a much more innovative approach to their job searches.
In an overcrowded job market, sometimes unemployed law school graduates have to resort to some rather unorthodox measures just to get a foot in the door. After all, if you’re going to send unsolicited emails to hundreds if not thousands of attorneys, who needs a résumé when you can send a selfie instead?
That’s what a recent Villanova Law graduate did, and after all of the fanfare he received as a result of his viral job search tactics, he’s got something to say. Inspired by Martin Luther King, Jr., Brian Zulberti has a dream…
I had the pleasure of speaking to Brian Zulberti last night, and he was a great sport about the fact that Above the Law shed some light on his unusual job campaign. He’s a real sweetheart, but before I got the chance to have a chat with this fellow, he posted a YouTube video in response to my post.
In the video, Zulberti goes to great lengths to explain that he simply made a typo in his job solicitation, seemingly penned in crayon, and posted on Facebook. Here’s a brief note for our readers: Typos are most typically made when typing, but I forgive this transgression because he’s so damn cute.
Zulberti then recites his own version of MLK’s inspirational “I Have a Dream” speech. Here’s an excerpt:
God willing we will all speed up that day when all God’s children, black and white, gay or straight, liberal or conservative, normal or eccentric, will be able to join their nicely sculpted arms together and exclaim: Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!
Here’s the video, in all of its fabulous glory. He even shows us his wonderfully toned arms again:
For the record, Brian, I would go to dinner with you — and I’d even pay. Best of luck in your job search!
