Pre-1L Summer Internships Worth It?

Postby SHANbangs » Thu Mar 03, 2011 11:46 am

A family friend is offering to help me get a pre-1L summer internship working for GE Legal. I'm wondering if this will help, if at all, and if it is worth the time? I would have to move to Cincinnati for a few months and quit my current job, which I rather enjoy (thought not legal related) and leave my new apartment (which I really enjoy!).

I'm debating applying for one as well. I think I'm actually just going to not apply and do nothing for the rest of the summer. I can't imagine another internship would help me get 1L summer employment (I have 4 summer internships already from the past 4 summers), and that's really the only thing that your resume will get you in the near future.

only if youre fairly certain that this internship will help you get a future if you want to work at GE in the future

even if not, it may still help in getting a 1L summer job, though the pressure there isnt that great (unless this job is paying and would be again hmmz)
