Many employers (unfairly, I think) tend to view RA positions as reserved for underachieving students
I'll be working this summer as a research asst for my Crim Law prof. Seeing as that won't take up all of my time, should I be dead set on supplementing that with other legal work? To be honest with you, I have no interest in taking on other work this summer beyond that (at least work that doesn't pay or particularly interest me), but my fear is that future employers might see it as a cop out since most research asst jobs are part-time. In short, is there any reason to take on part-time work this summer other than to supplement my income?
