Now, what else should you do. If you think things are not going well, I would expand your search -- look for company internships, governmental summer positions, smaller/mid-size firms. Find something that will add to you resume and may have some potential of future employment. I realize the law firm route is more direct but with the market being as it is, you will need to be more creative. And yes, ask your contacts in the legal and business world for advice. HP got a IL summer job because HP asked HP's uncle if he knew any law firms with openings (uncle was in transportation business). Resume went to a law firm and HP got interviews. It turned out that HP's uncle sent it to his friend, who happened to be a private investigator for the firm. Sure, it wasn't an AM LAW 100/200 firm, but it was great experience and got a law job on HP's resume to position HP for 2l hiring. So, you never know. Don't be shy - make the ask!
