I am a recent graduate and am passionate about the legal field. I've been having a hard time finding positions in the new city I moved to. When is the turning -point when I should decide to leave or stay? #career #college

I agree with Josh! Also, there is no downside to casting a broader net and looking/applying for jobs outside of your local area. Just because you apply for a job doesn't mean you will get an interview. Just because you interview and are offered a job, doesn't mean you have to take it. You may find a job that excites you and you don't care where it is located.

Every job is a building stone, your first job may not be exactly what [or where] you want to do for the rest of your life. You need to start on your career and build you resume with experiences as you travel your career path. I found that you don't know what you don't know . You have in your mind the 'perfect' job/career but that is based upon your limited experience. You may be surprised along the way to find that what you thought you wanted has changed and, through the work experiences, you found a different job [or location] that excites and makes you happy.

I would say it depends on where you are looking and what you are trying to obtain. Also look to State, Local and Federal opportunities as they have a lot of entry legal fields. Sometimes your first stop won't be exactly what you want but over time you will build your career to get there.
