last minute softs... what should I do?

Postby itachiuchiha » Thu Jul 25, 2013 7:18 pm

so I will be applying in September and I am in need of a job. just part time, nothing big. I have a law clerk internship right now but that is only 1 day a week. I need to pick up another PT job. so these are my options:

1. America Reads/ America Counts Federal Work Study Tutor
2. 5- Hour Energy Marketing Intern --LinkRemoved--
3. tutor at a private tutoring firm
4. retail store job

Could you find a real full-time job, even as a low-level office worker? You'll be there for about a year by the time you apply and I think having real post-graduate work experience would do more for you (if not for admission, then at least for showing at OCI that you can function in an office environment) than most of these options.

If tutoring pays well, though, that sounds fine. Or travel or something. In any case, I don't think adding any of the options listed will significantly influence your cycle.
