Does it make a difference to a recruiter when they see that the applicant has worked in the field that they want to enter?
I am confused with the notion of work experience vs grades. It seems like lacking both could hurt.
I am interested in litigation. Most likely products liability.
With work experience like yours, I would be interested in the fact that you have worked in a law firm setting. Not necessarily looking at what you were doing. Just shows that you know what firm life is like and probably know more about what you would or would not like doing.
