Had a phone interview with legal aid, offered position on the spot, accepted it about an hour later over email. :D Nice to know that I don't have to fret about this any longer and focus on my studies!

Here's the story:
I was put in touch with a contact who is the former GC. He gave me the details of a current lawyer there (not the GC, but high up the food chain) and said person sent my resume to HR. HR asked me to complete the online application, which I did (and then emailed them to tell them I had done so).

The company is one of the biggest names in XYZ industry (household name) and my resume screams XYZ. (years of work experience). The job posting said that, if selected, interviews start on the 9th.
So far, I've not heard back. What should I do?

Apparently, I'm still in the running :lol:

Thanks! Only sent out 7 job apps in Jan., and that was my first interview. It was kind of silly of me to feel nervous about competing with the TLS 1Ls on here sending out literally 200+ apps on Dec. 1, lol (although I suppose that's the approach firm folks have to take ITE)

6 week internship with a district court judge. Very happy.

Now looking for firms to split, wouldn't mind making some $$. Though really a few weeks of doing research for a prof wouldn't be a bad way to spend half a summer.
