Kind of pumped about that.
How did you work this one out? Was that the period of time you were interviewing for or did you request it? Just curious...
Since they're so tiny, they usually don't have a formal summer program. I reached out to them before OCI began, we kept a dialogue going, I visited when I visited other firms in H, they liked me, discussed, and decided to offer me a 4 week job.
It was a non-OCI job. Mix of plaintiffs and defense work.
It works out nicely. If I land a second Texas gig (as I'm praying I do), I can do 6 weeks and 4 weeks and voila, normal 10 week summer. But even if I don't get another TX job, I can do 10 weeks (a full summer) in a big NYC firm and then 4 weeks in the lit boutique. Wouldn't give me much of a break, but ITE, completing the summer program at two different jobs can only help.
