I'm a westlaw rep.  Depending on the area, we make anywhere between $10-14/hour - plus you get a discount on books.

Do you really think it's an impressive thing to put on your resume?
Are you even putting it on your resume?

If you can get decent grades and hold down a job as a Westlaw rep, I can't imagine that it's a bad thing to have on one's resume along with other extracurricular activities.

i would think it would be good because if you are a rep i hope you know either site inside and out, and knowing it can save money on mistaken searches, and quicker searches, which add up quickly
