Hi Angel and Hardknocks,
I'm a freelance reporter writing an article about how the recession is affecting California law students and recent graduates. I read your blog and I thought this might be something that you or your readers could speak to.
I'm trying to find Californian law students or grads willing to talk about how the poor economy is hurting their job search and especially how it's making it harder for them to manage student debt. I know this is already a big problem for anyone who's been to law school, but I'd like to find out how much worse it's become in the past year since the slow-down.
Here are some of the questions I'm trying to answer: Are they seeing fewer job openings in California? How did the recession affect where students look for jobs or what kind of job they look for? Is the economy convincing some grads to abandon attempts to get law jobs and look for new careers? How is debt limiting their career options?
I know that not all of these questions may apply to you, but I thought that you may know of some grads from California who would be interested in speaking out about this issue. Please let me know if there are any good times when you'd be available to chat for a few minutes either today or next week; you can drop me a line here at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, please feel free to pass on my contact info to anyone whom you think would be up to talking.
