Articling Dilemma

Recommended Posts

i have pretty good grades and experiences yet struck out of the formal articling recruit. I am currently considering applying to less than ideal positions or waiting for the next formal recruit and trying again with better options. I would love to get your thoughts on: a) applying to articling positions that you already intend on lateraling from; or b) effectively putting my career on hold for one year without any guarantee of securing a better position. Also, how do associates typically seek lateral opportunities? I've seen some postings on Precedent A-List and the OBA job board. I've also heard of people working with legal recruitment agencies. Thanks in advance.

In my opinion, whatever factors acted against you getting a position in the first round will be exacerbated in the second round, as employers will note that you sat out a year. So you should make a decision based on the assumption that your chances will be lower next year. Basically, consider what @TrialPrep said.
