1L job search / Re: just how bad is the 1L job market?

it seems like people on the west coast have better luck?
I have read posts after post about some NYU 1Ls and the likes had hard time finding jobs.

by firm jobs do you mean only biglaw, or any decent firms (small / mid-sized) that pays ?

You should look into some less popular cities.

I talked to a career office staff today and she said that it's really tight. She said some people are not willing to apply to places other than where they go to school, which explains why a lot of them are still jobless....

General Board / Re: worth splitting my 1L summer?

thankas  :D
I am actually gunning for this semester, which carries more weight than last (and I was on some sort of medication over the exam -- sick due to new england weather) I do think I will end up getting a decent gpa. but in this economy .... well.

I actually wish to work in a firm like that in the long run (too bad it won't automatically lead to a long term job) you know, it does not pay summer interns that much, but it pays its full/ time attorneys like 115000 ... and the work hours is like 40 hours per week.

I wish to have as many options as possible.
I wish to have the option to do biglaw, but this is because mid-law or boutique law firms is not a possibility! -- who doesn't want a nice mid-law/ boutique law firm with good pay (100000+) and decent work hours???

I know they say that 1L summer job does not really matter. but I think it matters a little bit, for students like me who do not have excellent grades.

I just got a summer internship offer from a very nice litigation boutique firm in L.A. (pays 900/ week) Yesterday I got an offer from a circuit court judge in New York.

Is it worth splitting my summer, working for, say, 8 weeks at the chamber, and 5 weeks in LA?

The firm position willnot automatically lead to a full-time position like SA at large firms, but I do think it will help me build up connections (I have no ties at all with either NY or LA, as I am international). And it's a reputable firm.
