So the job search continues. I've been making contacts and sending out lots of resumes, although the market right now doesn't seem to be very good. My dream job would be with the Department of Justice - Civil Rights division, but from what I understand, it is very difficult to get in there. I am applying for several non-profit jobs with organizations that do civil rights work too.
I think the biggest thing I am learning from this job search is patience - so at least something positive is coming out of it so far! I'm just going to keep plugging away and eventually something will happen - I know it!
