2L job search / Re: ITT You Help Bears Get A Job
« on: June 25, 2009, 11:17:48 AM »
Would you suggest sending the materials on plain white or cotton resume/business paper? I used the pricey stuff for 1L summer mailings but was wondering if firms actually prefer regular paper...

I think thin-ish white cotton paper is probably the credited answer.  Obviously send it in a full-length envelope.

Full length?! Regular business envelopes are a no go?! :(

Which do you prefer to read: paper with large creases or paper without large creases?
I suppose the creaseless paper, but resume envelopes tend to be regular business size, and common practice seems to be to send regular envelopes.

So what's the credited thing to do then? Big manila envelope probably isn't that great either...

Professional class white mailers are available at Staples and Office Depot.

(c) During dinner: order a mid-priced entree - but don't order a pasta.

......why not?

Eating pasta is relatively awkward and messy.  Order at your own peril.

Do you guys have any advice regarding researching lit boutiques that pay, say, 100k+? Seems like most of these places aren't listed on NALP and the other usual suspects that list law firms.

It's tough.  I used martindale and picked out any firm with 6-30 attorneys in lit.  Most paid $70k - $145k.

4) Determine least expensive way to print resumes + mailers (or labels).  Use white cotton paper.  Print + prepare.  Mail first week of August.  You should be sending ~150 letters.  Balance these letters between the uber-prestigious, V100, and less prestigious regionals.

Is traditional mail preferred over email submissions?

Generally, traditional mail seems to be preferred over email submissions.

Some firms, though, have a strict preference for online submissions.  Check each firm's website before sending out the resumes.

then when do we hear more? also, do you actually know the guy who's writing it? or is it you writing fiction?

Dunno.  He blogs on the subtledig network with me but I don't know who he is or if its fiction.

167 gets you in range.
169+ makes you a virtual lock.
