Well, I think a lot of people are throwing things around that I will have already heard before. Don't get me wrong, I do appreciate the advice that is given to me but don't think I haven't heard it all before. Of course, I'm complaining but that being said, I don't think it's fair to expect someone to never complain, it's only natural. I just needed a rant and of course that doesn't mean I'm giving up. Of course I know lawyers are tenacious and I know the personality of a lawyer, you guys don't need to tell me - I am one afterall and this thread was written in brutal honesty. Don't think I'll be confessing like this to employers. Finding work as a lawyer and working with lawyers are two very different things, believe me.

You can say a lot of things about what I'm doing wrong but I know just what I'm capable of - I didn't graduate from Law School for nothing. I know my industry very well, please don't mock my intelligence - I know exactly what Law Firms want and I know I've got it but the competition is a factor all on its own. Everyone has a moment of weakness when they want to complain - it acts as a stress reliever and that's what I've done.

But thanks, really. I don't mean to come across as shouting at anyway, I'm really not.

Another assumption. Don't lie in front of lawyers when you're trying to get a job with them. You risk you career (if the Law Society gets hold you've been lying, they'll strike you off the profession). It's incredibly difficult to lie in a legal interview not that I know but I definitely wouldn't recommend it. You are being interviewed by people who cross-examine witnesses quite often.
