Especially for recent graduates, we recommend that web-based job searches of commercial websites, such as the ones listed below, represent only one component of your job search.

Recent studies have found that only about one-third of job searchers get their jobs through such commercial job websites. Making contacts, networking and targeting legal employers should continue to comprise the majority of your search.
