I've been told by a couple profs that roughly 5-10 pages is what employers are looking for. My question is, has anyone sent two shorter samples that collectively fall within that page limit range?
I have some Motions for Summary Judgment from my first job this summer that I would like to use, but the argument portions of them are no more than 4 pages. I'd like to use one of them and then 4-5 pages of a predictive memo I wrote in LRW. I thought this might be good because it will provide a bit of a contrast (1 from work, 1 from school and one persuasive, one predictive) while still not being more than one would be willing to glance at.
Is this practice frowned upon?
Thanks for any feedback.
