Should I delay my LPC until the market picks up?

I’ve just finished the GDL course and have no training contract. Many law firms seem to be reducing their intakes and even paying for those who already have training contracts to delay for a year. I therefore cannot decide whether I’d be better off delaying my LPC for a year.

Is it even realistic to think that in this market I would be able to secure a paralegal position and that it could be turned into a training contract?
