spring internship advice
« on: December 21, 2008, 11:42:23 PM »
Which internship experience would prove to be "better-looking" on the resume for law firms?  FTC (Federal Trade Commission) or Bank of America in house.  I have done externships for a while but this is a tough decision to make (altho a good dilemma).  Both would look great on the resume, but I am looking for one that will provide the best opportunity to get a law firm job eventually.  Basically, which one would law firms like better??

Any advice would help, thanks

Really, I'm just posting to tag this thread because I am wondering what people think about your question.

My gut reaction is to say it doesn't matter, especially because it's part time during the semester (and, I'm guessing you're a 1L?).  Just do whichever one interest you more, you get a better vibe from, or pays more (if they pay).
