Some of you may be coming to the realization that your dream job out of law school is more akin to a nightmare. Maybe your priorities have changed. Perhaps you have a new baby at home and you want to spend more time raising a family and less time raising your monthly billables. Maybe you found a niche in one type of law, and unfortunately, you don’t get to practice it as much as you would like. Maybe you were really so deluded as to believe your first year would be just like your summers — all presents, cocktail parties and boat trips.

Regardless of how you got here, you are out there, pounding the pavement. Worse, there are no career advisers or on-campus recruiting visits to assist you. So you try your hand at online job searching.
