Ok, so reading all these threads about sending out 80-100 applications is making me really nervous. Is this for people trying to secure firm work? I'm looking public interest work, preferably something immigration or human rights related. How many applications should I be aiming to send out? I'm at a top 30 school, straight out of undergrand, but with a couple of internships. Also, would any one be willing to look at my resume, the career center is closed for break and i really want to send this out soon.
Also should I even bother trying to apply to firms this late in the game as I'm not at T14?
Why would you bother spamming firms if you aren't interested in firm work? In this economy, and with your pedigree, you only have a very slim chance of landing anything in the private sector, and it seems hardly worth the effort if it's not what you want to do.
