Just saw my legal writing professor from 1L. Her response to my job search woes: perseverance. I can’t agree more. I’m at the point where I think I should be desensitized towards rejection letters already, but I’m not. My heart still sinks a bit when I spot a thin, ivory envelope in the mail box, with the name of one of the law firm’s that I interviewed with. I don’t know why I still bother reading these things. Maybe a part of me still hope (however, irrationally), that the an invitation to a call-back could be buried in the standard “congratulations” on my “accomplishments.”
Regardless…here’s to hoping that I will receive more truly congratulatory phone calls…soon. Until then, I just have to keep at it.
