Big Chemical Companies really make me feel all warm and fuzzy all over too. I am sure the hiring partners can relate.

Think about why you want to work on matters for those clients. The work you do for high profile clients often involves issues of national significance, breaking new ground in the law, very sophisticated lawyering (whether it's for a transactional deal or a lawsuit), and so on. It's demanding work, but also interesting and somewhat enjoyable.
