« Conservative THE DAILY CALLER - More tabloid than Politico, Above The Law | Main | Milbank's Error of Judgment: Haven't we all done that »

The problem isn't qualification, you've missed the point.

The problem law grads face trying to get a non-legal job is stereotypes.

I was once asked "Why don't you want to be a rich lawyer? We don't need people who plan on coasting here." or the alternative "Level with me- this is just a temporary position until you get a high-paying legal job. We're looking for someone who's thinking Career."

No one in other fields seems to grasp the reality of the legal field, so a law degree becomes a black mark, like being a convicted felon. Actually, convicted felons are having an easier time finding work, at least they can work construction.
