A riddle for you

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Nov 17, 2011 2:57 pm

So, the firm that I'm going to this summer lists people who work for them over the summer as "summer clerks." However, my offer letter says "summer associate." I'm being paid almost, but not quite, as much as an associate and most people who have held the job have received an offer at the end of the summer. What am I?

Why don't you ask the firm?

Pretty sure the two can be treated as being synonymous.

Unless you're an actual clerk.

Go by whatever is written on the offer you accepted. You accepted an offer to be a summer associate, so that's what you are.
