Offer on Resume?

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Aug 06, 2011 8:04 pm

I just got an offer at an NYC V100 and am applying for clerkships in the coming month. Do I note the offer on my resume? Trying to get this done before the weekend, otherwise I'd ask CSO.

Not screwing up as a summer associate isn't a resume-worthy accomplishment.

I can see it mattering for 3L OCI, but not for judges; judges will assume you're applying for a clerkship because you want to clerk, not because you're a no-offered 3L. Curious to hear others' thoughts on this though.
