ABA Journal: An employment website has more bad news for unemployed lawyers. Its data shows the legal field is the most difficult industry for job placement.
According to data from job search engine SimplyHired.com, there is less than one job opening for every 100 working lawyers, making it the career that is most difficult for job placement, the Wall Street Journal (sub. req.) reports.
The outlook is better for occupational, physical and speech therapists, who are in high demand and short supply, the story says. There are 64 open jobs in occupational therapy for every 100 people working in the field.
