Bar Associations are fabulous resources for job postings in many areas, particularly in larger cites. Most are organized based upon the county or city in which they are located, so you can find them online through a simple search using the county or city name and the words “bar association.” For example, if you are interested in the Atlanta area, check out the site for the DeKalb County Bar Association. To the right of the menu bar, you will find the “Career Center,” where you can search for jobs, sign up for job posting alerts, or post your resume.
To start your search for bar associations in your target area, make a list of the counties and cities in the region in which you are interested, and search for each of their websites. Then peruse any job postings, which may be listed under classifieds or careers. If you don’t see any, pick up the phone and call the bar association to ask them how most legal employers in the area advertize positions!
