babs, you must just know all the forthcoming people but really, i'm not surprised that some are struggling. ANYONE should be fortunate to have something decent lined up for the summer, and as i'm sure is true across the board, those who were sending out resumes on 12/1/08 mostly benefited from it. (i was waaayy too cracked out on outlining to even attempt this) but it's definitely not too late, especially for stuff like smaller firms and RA positions.in times like this, as a straight-through-from-undergrad type, i have next to no idea what i'd say in a biglaw interview.
bad.I'm number one in my class after first semester at a top 40 school near a great legal market. I'm still jobless.I have my suspicions as to why (nothing to do with my particular idiosyncracies...a broader theory), but flabbergasting nonetheless.
Has it not been the case that 1L jobs were always difficult to attain?
hey guys, i currently have an offer from PI organization that I really like doing immigration and asylum work. i have request from an state judge to come in for interview and i'm hesitant to go. my school has a rule that if you get an offer from a judge you must accept.my concern is what would look better for OCI this fall or will it even matter? Thoughts?
