Here's the gist of how my year-end reviews have gone for the past two years years:
Year 1: You're doing great.
Year 2: You're still doing great. Sorry we can't hire you as an attorney, but good luck on the job search. If you need any help,
Here's my full prediction for this year:
Attorney 2: You're still a great clerk, though you kind of give off an air that you don't want to be here.
Attorney 2: As far as your work goes, I don't have any complaints.
Attorney 5: I'm going to try to give you some more interesting stuff to work on to get you away from collections.
Attorney 2: How's the job search coming along?
Me: Sucks. Nobody is hiring attorneys right now.
Attorney 2: I know, the job market is tough right now. Keep your head up though, something will come along. Until then, you can keep clerking here. I should put a four year max on clerking. Haha!
Attorney 2: Keep up the good work and have fun at our xmas party tonight.
I'll keep you posted if anything turns out differently.
