Employment history?

Postby ctxmike » Sat Aug 20, 2011 2:20 pm

It's still a good year before I apply to law school, but I had a question. Early this summer I took a business development consultant position at a merchant services company. The pay was entirely commission based and the work was virtual (I worked from home and did sales via phone). I managed to snag the company a solid lead, but I really didn't like the lack of an office environment and decided to leave after 2-3 weeks of work. I then took up an internship at a nonprofit which I'm just now finishing up.

I know a lot of law schools ask for employment history. My question is: would it be worth even mentioning this considering the brevity of its term? If so, would it effect me since I left so early on?

I'm not sure if you have to put it on there, but leaving after 2-3 weeks is no big deal.
