Current economic situation

Q: I graduated from law school in the spring of 2008. Because of the current economic situation, I could not find a permanent position in the practice of law, notwithstanding all the honors, accomplishments in law school and a very impressive resume. During this post-graduation period, I completed an internship with the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law, and now I am doing a temporary legal job. I find myself in a very strange category of job seekers – I have graduated almost a year ago, and, although I obtained a unique and very valuable legal experience at UNCITRAL, I still do not have any practicing experience.
