I can't stand going to my office and dealing with all the sleazy b*st*rd lawyers but I need the paycheck to survive so I go there every day, bite my tongue and count the minutes until 5:00 on Friday. I feel guilty complaining about my job right now because there are so many people out there that are unemployed but I absolutely HATE IT!
I've been searching for a new job for a long time but haven't been able to find a decent position in this tough economy. Most law firms are making major cuts and my firm laid off about 8% of the staff but still expect the same amount of work to go out daily so it has gotten even worse. I hate my job so much I actually asked them to lay me off but they refused to do it. It doesn't aways pay to be good.
I met with a headhunter back in December and he finally got me an interview the other day. It went really well but I just found out they decided to go with another candidate. Out of the dozen or so people they interviewed it came down to me and another woman. The deciding factor for them was she was unemployed so they decided to give it to her instead. I understand their reasoning but I'm still disappointed I can't give my notice YET.
The search continues ....
