The job market for new attorneys is bad, but you already know that. People are struggling to find any paying legal work of any kind, even as they hope that one day the investment they’ve made in law school will pay off. And you already know that.

Employers know that. Employers know that you are desperate and sad, and they’re happy to take advantage of that. But there’s an employer posting on Craigslist who wants to hire you, even though they know you’re going to spend a lot of your time there crying in your office.

I mean “cubicle”….

The job posting is on the Chicago Craigslist.

Aww. Can’t you imagine interviewing with the managing partner of this firm? He’d have a bushy beard and a sports coat. He’d throw your résumé down on the table and say “it’s not your fault” and try to hug you.

You know what the best part of my day is? It’s for about ten seconds, from when I log onto my email before anything loads, ’cause I think, maybe I’ll get in and the law students won’t be there. No goodbye. No see you later. No nothing. They just left law school. I don’t know much, but I know that.
