Job Search / Asking for paid work
« on: February 23, 2006, 06:00:48 PM »
Hi everyone,

I am basically in the predicament of NEEDING paid summer work, but WANTING to do public interest.

I am only a lowly 1L, but I have a lot of work experience. I am applying to various places that pay 1Ls, but I also decided to search ads for legal jobs.

I found an ad for a place I would LOVE to work. The ad is for a "real" job. There are very few paid positions for legal interns at this place and my impression is that they have already hired that crew. HOWEVER, I have all of the qualifications for the "real" job. Basically, if I weren't a law student I think I could qualify for this work on my own.

My question: Is it OK/appropriate/worthwhile to contact the organization, explain my related experience and ask for a paying job along the lines of the open position?

General Off-Topic Board / Maybe I should d-dub too
« on: December 08, 2006, 10:23:08 PM »
Apparently someone on this board thinks it's amusing to go through my posts and find snippets of information to use in sending me rude personal messages. I think it's very strange.  ::)
I told this person that I was NOT amused .. but I'm wondering if perhaps I should do more.
Does that happen to anyone else? If so, how do yo deal with it?

General Off-Topic Board / What to ask a recruiter?
« on: August 23, 2006, 09:55:19 PM »
Hi,
I'd post this on the student board but it's slow (of course).
I have a chance to speak to a law recruiting director - it's a place I'm interested in but the idea is that it's more of an informational discussion.

Basically, I want an honest "what are my chances and what can I do to make them better" discussion, without sounding desperate.
So, what should I ask that would be helpful without looking stupid?

General Off-Topic Board / PSA: Picking your nose in public is rude
« on: July 26, 2006, 02:39:25 PM »
How do people not know this?
This guy on the train was just picking at his nose, looking at the boogers (sp?) ... having himself a grand old time.
His wife/girlfriend was sitting next to him and didn't even care  ???

General Off-Topic Board / I saw happy people!
« on: June 28, 2006, 12:28:49 AM »
It's true. I went out tonight to see my friend's band and ran into a few of my former colleagues.
There they were ... smiling  ;D Laughing  :D It was so weird  ??? And so sad  :'(, because I haven't seen people like that in such a long time!

Really, all you lawyers and would-be-lawyers need to cheer up. Please, for God's sake life's supposed to be a little fun!

For you trollik 
You and all your perfect life = being filthy rich pals. This is your bachelor pad. :-*

To increase the extremely slight chance I have at attaining bliss to at least be numerical to 4 significant figures...  ;)

if you have free cheese, you're less likely to work, especially when the work you're qualified to do will often not pay more than your welfare check...

Trollik showed me the light. Why work when I could get free cheese?



OK, it's probably not as good as the cheese pictured, but it's FREE. Sure, you have to be a breastfeeding mother to qualify, but give me 9 months and I can arrange that.  I mean it's CHEESE folks!

General Off-Topic Board / Tired of being rich? Let's trade
« on: June 11, 2006, 11:54:44 PM »
Poor woman struggling to get by looking to trade places with rich kid.

In exchange for your rich kid status I will gladly trade:

*$5,000 in annual need based grants from T1 public school that costs as much as some private schools.

*$25,000 in undergrad debt from private liberal arts school (I would have had more debt but the school "felt sorry" for me and gave me some grants).

*A bunch of assorted credit card bills - mostly the product of years of medical expenses that my insurance -- yes I had a JOB! -- wouldn't cover.

*Chronic and expensive illness (which you might be able to milk into a scholarship -- I couldn't, but you may have better luck).

*The possiblity of URM status (I'm part black, so some private schools might like that).

*A set of parents from whom I will never, ever, evern inherit anything but trouble.

*A set of redneck relatives who also have no money and from whom I will never, ever inherit anything.

I will ONLY exchange my status for that of a RICH person in GOOD HEALTH. Middle class, those with dysfunctional families or smokers need not apply.

PM me for more details.
