James asks…

Question for lawyers only: What can an inexperienced, 40 year old lawyer do to make himself marketable?

I’m 40 years old. I graduated six years ago from Washington U in St Louis School of Law. I live in NYC where they haven’t heard of schools west of Pittsburgh and my school does not have an alumni network.
Since then, I’ve only been able to get document review assignments with large breaks of unemployment when the market cools down. Okay, so that’s my life thus far adn there are plenty of other students from my “top-twenty” school who are in the same boat. I’ve been doing my best to not whine over it without purpose.
Trust me, I have a MUCH better outlook on life than many of the thousands of people in this industry in NYC.
So here’s my question: Is there a field in the law or in a related field (or even on Mars for all I care) in whihc I can have a reasonalbe chance at getting a job, working my way up, and hopefully retire at 70 or so with my student loans paid and enough money to retire in a state with a low cost of living?
My experience beyond Doc REview (searching for words in emails) consists of:
1. completing five Chapter 7 bankruptcy petitions for people through Legal Services (their not hiring when they can get peole to do it for free) over the last 1.5 years. I would have done more petitiion but the legal aids have no motivation to move any faster.
2. Representing people in their SSD appeals for two years during law in 2001-2003. And,
3. I researched one issue and wrote one Motion in Limine since law school and I have no idea if they actually filed it.

Of course, I’ve been searching since before graduatiion. I like what I know about bankruptcy but every job I find in bankruptcy asks for a minimum of five years of experience. even the so-called entry level jobs want at least a yaer of Chapter 11 experience.
I’m looking in compliance jobs and they seem to either pay 17 an hour which means I’d have to default on my student loans or they want five to ten eyars experience
Legal aid agencies have been inundated with applications since 9/11 and can get most of their work done for free by pro bono attorneys.

Any ideas out there? I truly thank you for reading this far even if you don’t have any ideas. If you have any thoughtful suggestions it could make my day (and life).

PS. I’m limiting this to lawyers because I’m used to gettting, weell-meaning, but frustrating advice from non-lawyers who think the legal profession works like most other industries in whihc someone can start in the mailroom or as a paralegal and work their way up to Senior Associate or Partner. For example, a non-lawyer will tell me to simply start filing bankruptcy petitions for people or to try to get jobs in all fifty states while a legal professional will know that we need to study, take an exam, become admitted to work in each of those jurisdicitions.

scottparat answers:

At most I can only offer you a job lead. I have a friend who just secured employment at the legal counsel’s office at the EEOC (If I recall correctly they are on Water street.) She advised me last night they were still hiring and to pass the word. Regardless, she was previously practicing DV/Fam law in Westchester. It’s not paying a heap of money but its a secure position with the opportunity to move up possibly to administrative judge. Definitely go into EEOC website… I know its not your field but I have more than a dozen friends who are lawyers and in your position. All are practicing anything they can get there hands on. I know. It’s really bad out here especially for those in the legal profession. Best of luck. For the record. We are all in our 40’s.

Public Domain Images Question

Nancy asks…

where to find Public domain images of bollywood actors?

where can i find bollywood actors and actresses free pictures – should be in public domain to be posted in my blog? Thanks. Please help name a few sites and any things that can be done to find such free pictures.

Sandy asks…

What are the most common public domain art prints hanging in peoples houses?

I can find plenty of lists of famous paintings and posters, but can’t find any lists of the most popular prints that people have hanging on their wall.

I’m mainly looking for images that would be in the public domain(typically meaning originally made prior to 1923 or published by the government) that most people would recognize and many would know someone that has a print of hanging in their home or office…such as Starry Night by Van Gogh.

Thanks

scottparat answers:

The last supper and sad white jesus.

Despite being a stock poster in every campus ‘art”sale Van Gogh, still not as popular as the usual religious junk. Most because the same people who are hanging Starry Night on their walls in college, tend to buy or produce original art for their walls later in life. Which means the stock print people are a lot more likely to have representational tastes.

They’ve been selling computer generated fake Warhole prints for fifteen years now, yet don’t you snicker when you see them?

Best Internet Marketing Programs Question

Joseph asks…

Help I cant Decide!!!!!!!!!!!Sales/Advertising, Web Design, Internet Marketing, Human Resources?

Hi, there I am a 26 yr old female who has 2 semesters of business mgmt/Human Resources under my belt. Unfortunately I am starting to think this job is not the right choice. I am considering all of the careers listed above.I am a very down to earth, sensitive, creative, helpful type (I am a cancer if that helps.)I want to find the right field to fit my personality so that i will enjoy what I do. I love designing things such as flyers, using programs such as powerpoint, and in general just talking with people and brainstorming new ideas. Which of these careers is in the most demand or pays the best?Which one would fit my personality the most? (Please keep in mind I don’t want to work 70 hrs a week either.)If possible I would also like something I could do from home if need be. Any input would be much appreciated, thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

scottparat answers:

There are many subspecialties in the Human Resources field which might interest you. How about Training or Corporate Event Planning? New Business Development is also a field to look into – All of the above will use your creative skills, your people skills and your powerpoint skills.

You can also take a career assessment test. Such a test will evaluate your skills, abilities and talents and then recommend career choices. Guidance/career centers in most colleges should have these assessment tests, as well as employment agencies.

Good luck.

Website Graphics For Sale Question

Robert asks…

what can be told about the Art Institute’s on line graphics courses?

I’m looking to improve my artistic scope as a commercial artist by taking some graphics and design courses on line and i am looking at the Art Institute whom i have visited to see what they have to offer. So far it’s looks legit, what is the general consensus?

scottparat answers:

What he said.
If its one of the Art Institutes run by EDMC (all of them that use the
AI logo), avoid them like a plague. They’re not an art school
employers take seriously. They’re open enrollment, they take ANYONE.
They just want the financial aid from the government that you are
entitled to. The government is now suing them for 11 Billion Dollars which could wipe them off the map easily.

If you ask me, they’re an elaborate corporate scam to funnel as many
Government Pell grants and guaranteed loans out of students as they
can and leave the students with the bill.

They’re like McDonald’s of Art “Colleges”. They’re a chain that is
popping up everywhere. They buy out dying schools, rename them, keep
the accreditation.They create programs designed for impulse buyers and quick hits aka uninformed students.

They may seem like they would be good, but it is all smoke and
mirrors. Pretty building with pretty computers. Meanwhile, it will
just ruin your life.

The market demand they say they’re meeting is not the demand of the
Job market, its the demand of the students. Students that graduated AI
are struggling to get jobs and have over more than $50,000+ or
$90,000+ in debt depending on what degree they went for. Degrees that
are worthless in the job market.

Basically, AI is a degree mill. They use bloated success stats and
circle logic to back them up.

They count students working at Toys R Us as in the field. Avoid them
if you want to actually have a decent future.

If you really want to pursue your passion, go to a community college,
study fine art, and then transfer into a state school. It will be
cheaper and the money you save you can buy your own equipment and
STILL have money left over for a better future.

Their job leads are bogus, they go to Monster, Craigslist, and career
builder just like everyone else. Their top employer is HOME DEPOT
(Check their own website) and I guarantee none of those are art jobs.

Don’t make the same mistake my friends and I did. We’ll be paying for
it for the rest of our lives.

If you go with AI you’ll be folding clothes at Target or hawking video
games at Toys R Us for $8.25 an hour and struggling to pay $90,000+
with bill collectors haunting your every waking moment for the REST OF
YOUR LIFE with no way to stop them because there is no bankruptcy
protection on Student loans.
Please please please make sure you check out these news articles
below. Many are accounts from students, staff, and teachers of AI.
Feel free to check YELP (“Filtered results” as well.)

What you do with this information is your choice, I just want to make
sure you know everything before listening to one of their recruiters
sales pitch. Remember, they’re paid sales people. Not your friend.
College may be expensive but what these guys are pulling is straight
out highway robbery.

Below is a few news articles about different AI’s around the country. They’re all pulling the same thing.
Its EDMC’s business model.

Decide for yourself.

Paul asks…

How can a company best use its Web site?

Under what circumstances might a company be ill-advised to aggressively promote sales of its product(s) at its Web site? What you think makes a company Web site good for you as a consumer?

scottparat answers:

If your Company’s Products are carried in retail stores you could be cutting off your arm here. Retailers could be spurned if your underselling them.
Consider a site that provides product information for the customer, uses unique creative graphics, and MOST-OF-ALL promotes your retailers ( link to your product at their sites… Should they not have a website you’ll need to list their address and phone #.) by using a ‘Where To find Our Products’ Button to Page.
Give a Small history area of your Co.’s development and an interesting Discovery Channel “How It’s Made” style video tour, and a newsletter if your product serves a field, industry, or hobby.
Definitely Be aggressive, Banner Ads on Yahoo, etc.
And ALWAYS provide a way for new retailers to come into your fold ( a link for them to contact you with questions and get sales figures and Business to Business information, make it easy for them to start doing business with you. Option a Package with samples with set up paper work for a soft step into their market.

If you don’t have retailers, Make That aggressive Stance.

ABOUT ADVERTISING:
Don’t just make a flash. Launch a flare, become a beacon.

A spark-like flash annoys and scares people away, a flare is beautiful and draws everyone to a location and burns long and bright. A beacon is a permanent fixture, people can always find it. How will you light-up your Site?
I wish you luck and a successful ’08.

Steven asks…

Where do I get fake pictures for a website without having to deal with identity theft?

Hi!

For security purposes, I don’t want to use my own pictures. I just want some pictures for “About Us” section so that I could build up a more professional looking website. However, I can’t just use any pictures due to identity theft issues. I will use some pictures of friends, but need pictures of two different guys. Is there any way I could find some pics without putting myself in huge risks?

Thank you.

Blogger Themes Simple Question

Mandy asks…

Any really good websites for blogging?

Does anyone have any good websites for blogging? Not myspace though because some of my friends protest and will not get them to save their life.

scottparat answers:

I just started a blogging community website…it is very simple & since it is new, you can get in early :) The site has a general theme about love, but you can really write about anything if you want.. The site is http://www.itmightbelove.com if you’d like to visit it…I will also be having some fun contests every month once I get the first 50 people signed up – even if you did decide to create a blog somewhere else, it could be a good way to get exposure to it.

Other alternatives include blogger, wordpress, blogger party, typepad, live journal (though these are all not free)…the list goes on and on and on…

Good luck with your blog! I hope you visit my site!
