Q: I am having trouble finding a position. I have eight years of experience and passed the California bar on the first attempt. I attended a small law school in New England. Despite my legal achievements, I am discovering that recruiters and law firms will not speak with me because I did not attend a supposed top tier school.

I always believed that where I attended law school matters less as I gain more experience. How can I overcome this stereotype of being less qualified simply because I did not attend a top 10 law school?
