Don't Sweat the Job Search

Rufus of Running for Lawyers, guest-posting on Notes from the (Legal) Underground, has some advice for law students on career planning. He says:
"Careers like lives have twists in them. You really shouldn't plan too much beyond doing the best job you can and being alert to opportunities and open to possibilities."
Rufus advises law students to "calm down" about their job search. And once you've found a job, realize that "a job is not a marriage . . . If you don't like your first job, or if it turns out to be the wrong practice area for you, then look for another one." That, and much more, in Rufus's post.

Dude, it's "Running With Lawyers." What does Running for Lawyers even mean?

Dude, sorry about that. I just cut-and-pasted from the submission form! I'll try to be more careful in the future.

I think "running for lawyers" might be a slogan for John Edwards, but I'm not sure.
