However, my networking skills are very mature. Unfortunately, not many in the top 10 at my school have this ability.
According to the posts on this board I must be an exception to the norm. I do go to a T4 school. I found an intern at an Estate Planning firm. I have turned down one job offer and will have to turn down one more since I will take the Estate Planning job. However, my networking skills are very mature. Unfortunately, not many in the top 10 at my school have this ability. Could this be the reason they are unemployeed at the moment??
It is hard in general moron, or else it would not be competitive.
I stopped reading after, "100% charity...," that is b.s., you are doing it for perceived prospects. If I wanted to do charity work I would go down to the local food shelf and defend a cracked out father from going to prison. The real competition and cream of the crop lies within firms, or biglaw. Get your internship there or else you'll regret it.
