I feel your pain, man. How are you supposed to get work experience in the field related to a job if nobody in that field will hire you unless you have prior experience? And why do you have to already have a job to get hired? It's like some kind of Kafka-esque paradox!
Yep it sucks for everyone, the law firm I work as a clerk at will be moving to another province since the head lawyer is moving as well. Gonna have to find a new position elsewhere. Best of luck to you in your job hunt!
