I submitted my resume through OCI for a bunch of jobs that I didn't necessarily want. Well, I wasn't really convinced I would get the interviews because I am not a "certified legal intern" (in florida it means the supreme court licenses you to practice as a lawyer temporarily before you graduate), and I haven't worked at a SA or PD office.
Well, I have interviews this week and next week including Public Defender's offices and State's Attorneys offices. When they ask me "why are you interested in this position," I want to be able to respond, so what are the perks of working those jobs?
Here is all I can come up with:
1. You get a ton of litigation experience, whereas first and second year associates in civil firms are typically stuck shuffling papers
2. The work is probably pretty interesting. Prosecuting a DUI or something like that is more interesting than checking property for easements, or analyzing the proviso language of a contract for the sale of toaster ovens, IMO.
anything else? anything at all would be helpful.
