I've been asked for some quick suggestions for job hunting. Some of these are geared toward more experienced folks but they sometimes do have entry level openings:
- acc.com (in house jobs - association of corporate counsel) (free search feature)
- lawjobs.com (free)
-- attorneyjobs.com (West service, subscription - but does appear to have different jobs than the other sites, and worth a couple of months subscription
-- craigslist under legal - no laughing -- smaller firms (who may be more apt to hire entry level - do post there; also temporary work.
-- industry and professional groups often have their own sites -- such as speciality-specific bars and groups like women's bar associations.
-- usajobs.gov (fed jobs - safest place these days).
Obviously, if you know someone who may know someone at a place can get your resume into the right hands as opposed to a large email box, that is helpful. Ask around. Do not be shy. I have a laid off friend who saw a job, I believe on acc.com, and asked me if I knew anyone at this company. I did not, but asked my partner, who does have a contact there. He sent the resume on with a note. Now, friend may or may not get the interview but at least it is a better shot than just a regular submission.
If you have suggestions you are willing to share, please feel free to post them in the comments.
