I am almost finished my bachelors degree. My future hubby is in law school. Currently, we are living in New England and contemplating a move to North or South Carolina in a couple years to plant our roots, but with the economy being the way it is, I'm worried employment will be difficult to find, especially for an entry level attorney and I am planning to start my own business. I suppose I'm looking for reassurance or warnings now lol

We have several good law schools in the area that are cranking out unemployed new lawyers all the time. There would be very stiff competition for the handful of jobs that might exist.

That's fairly eye-opening, thanks. This may sound like a dumb question, but if unemployment is that high, am I safe in assuming it's not the best economical market to open a business?

That question is probably better aimed at someone in your specific industry. Or the Employment forum under the general C-D forums. Also, use the Search function to find many, many old threads on this topic.

One of my real estate attorneys has had to downsize her office.

She was recently looking for a part time paralegal and said she usually searches in the Law magazines. Maybe a place for your husband to look?

Unemployment is everywhere. The best of the best will always find a job. Those that are just mediocre will always have trouble finding a job. Sometimes it is all in your attitude.

Oh, so wrong.

In this economy, luck is a huge contributing factor to success.

Agreed - sometimes it's just luck of timing too. The right job in the right place needs to be open at the right time for the right candidate to find it.

Wow, I am amazed at the insesitivity of that statement; Inferring that in this current economy people are "just mediocre" if they are having difficulty finding employment.
