The Jobless Lawyer

A BIG LAW associate whose position was eliminated tells how it all happened and describes his current job search:

I am a licensed attorney in the State of NY. I have two ivy league degrees, and up until March ‘09 was practicing commercial litigation at one of the top 10 firms in the US. Since March I have been unemployed and this blog is an effort to chronicle my adventures in seeking a new job. My hope is that this blog will enlighten others who either 1- are thinking of going into the legal field, 2- were similarly affected by the economic downturn, or 3- can find some humor in the misfortunes of life.

At the time I am writing this introduction I have been unemployed for a total of 24 weeks. During these 24 weeks I have had many experiences worthy of blogging but at the time they occurred this was not possible since I was not maintaining a blog. So in an effort to provide a wealth of interesting content and to chronicle my prior unemployment sojourns, my blog entries will begin by discussing events in the recent past when my unemployment woes began. I will continue to call upon these examples until my prior experiences catch up to my current reality.

The anonymous jobless one writes so well you can't help but enjoy his story and root for him to succeed.
