I was going to prepare a cynical post for today, but my heart just isn't in it.
Why? Well, I actually had a bright ray of sunshine beam into my otherwise depressing quest to find a job today...or something like that (metaphors aren't my strong suit).
Today, I was asked to come in for an interview. This is a serious, full time position that is not law related at all - in the non-legal world, I think it's called a "job".
Obviously, I can't count my chickens before they hatch, but after sending out reams of resumes with nary a response (not even a rejection letter), this is exciting news. At least I stand a chance of somebody reading my resume.
I'll keep you posted with how I handle the inevitable, "Why on earth did you go to law school?" question.
Also, here's a little bit more good news for all my fellow job seekers. I left my J.D. on my resume. While this may be a fluke, those two letters apparently don't automatically relegate your resume to the circular file.
I have a lot of preparation to do for this interview, but I'll do my best to get another "feature" article out in the near future.
