Challenge for tier 2 0Ls - find a good job
« on: December 30, 2007, 08:36:58 PM »
Since OCI will be off limits to those not in the top 10-15%, you're going to need to get a job by networking/school's job board/craigslist/want ads and so on.

You might as well look at the latter right now. Pretend you're a 3L and about to graduate. Let's see if you can find a good job. You can use the whole world as a resource, including the internet/school's job board/print media/networking/whatever.

Once you find said job opening, please provide:
Name of employer
Brief description of job
Compensation package
Contact person
