oy. i've indicated that in my cover letters. i am such a fail. i just thought i would be saving the both of us (employer and applicant) time if that wasn't what they wanted since it would likely come up during the interview.
i'm really looking for anything int'l relations, public policy, social justice related (very hard to find anything that is not an internship in those fields) but the more realistic and abundant openings are paralegal positions but i feel like even if tehy don't explicitly state it in their job posting, they want someone for at least 1-2 years (preferably 2).
but hmm i guess i'll just go with the flow and say im not sure when i want to attend law skl but then suppose i get hired and i have to leave earlier than they anticipated...am I burning bridges?
You might want to avoid public policy/politics in general. I just posted two job openings last week (one entry level and one internship) and I probably have more than 60 applicants for each in a fairly short time. Everyone wants to be in policy; it is SUPER competitive right now. That being said, if you are a Republican, you can probably find work on the hill or in state houses Transition teams are scrambling to fill slots.
