Job Opportunities for Attorneys

Many people believe that three years of challenging exams and studious work in law school will guarantee a successful and high paying career. However, even lawyers and recent law school graduates have difficulty finding job opportunities in this economic climate. According to the Wall Street Journal, only 55% of 2011 law school graduates were able to find full time employment as lawyers nine months after graduation. The other 45% are either unemployed or working jobs that are not related to law.

Employment rates for attorneys are at a low and the legal field is becoming increasingly competitive. In this recession, it can feel utterly hopeless finding the right law-related employment opportunities. Career opportunities are extremely lacking and it is pivotal to find ones that actually match your level of professional experience and academic achievement.

In Orange County, the job search can be especially stressful and time consuming with various law firms located in Irvine, Costa Mesa, Santa Ana and Newport Beach. Finding the right employment opportunities require extreme research, vast knowledge, and strong connections. Do not toil any longer being unemployed or working for a law firm that does not fit your taste. For the best results, contact Diane Rifkin at Rifkin Consulting.
