Hello,

Well my fiance and I moved to Charlotte back in May and are loving it. I just graduated from law school in NY and took the NC bar exam and passed!! Now i'm having trouble finding an entry level attorney position and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on the best places to look for these positions. Its very hard to find them online b/c most of the posts are for attorney's with experience. I am highly motivated and appreciate any help you can give. I mean should i just be sending out my resume blindly?? I'm just lost, and not knowing anyone here doesn't help. Thanks so much

Nez

Well I don't really have a practice area yet seeing that I was just admitted to the bar but I would like to practice either corporate law, tax law, real estate or banking law. Though I am really open to any field of law, this is just the area where I have previous experience and I majored in Marketing/Management and Finance in College.

There are tons of little law firms along E. Morehead Street and the nearby streets in Charlotte - it may be worth it just to drive around that area and take down names of any firms you see then go online and check out their websites to see if they are hiring. You can always just send cold letters and see if you get a nibble. Since you are new to NC Bar it may be better to try and get in with a small firm rather than a larger one that'll work you to death.

It is very hard to get into the larger firms unless you've graduated at the top of your class, and most large firms hire first year associates out of their summer associate classes. If you are at the top of your class, it's worth a shot at the large firms just in case they didn't fill all their spots through their summer program.

The smaller firms definitely are more willing to look at candidates fresh out of the bar. I second the recommendation to check out the firms along Morehead.
