I hate to hear these stories, which unfortunately are too common during these difficult economic times.  A 26 year old recent law school graduate is interviewed on CNN about her inability to find a lawyer job despite graduating in the top half of her class, passing the Georgia bar on her first attempt and sending out over 100 job applications.  She now has a big school loan debt and works as a coffee barista for $7.50 an hour.

See “Many underemployed law grads from the classes of 2009 and 2010 are beefing up their resumés with volunteer work.”
