Part time job?

Postby Anonymous User » Thu Jan 24, 2013 10:57 am

Hi,

I'm debating between taking up a part-time job in retail for 10 hours a week since most of the spring internships are filled. Should I mass mail firms/places for an internship still? I don't have too much legal experience so obviously I should be looking for any legal internship, even unpaid, but I would love some extra cash now.

I did part time research for a professor and part time at a prosecutor's office 1L summer. I got paid for the research and I was able to have two jobs on my résumé. Worked our great and I split it 50/50 40hrs a week.

I meant for this semester, not the summer. Still trying to figure that out. I'm a 2L (did public interest last year but I want to work in a firm eventually, so not too much experience).

In that case I don't think it would matter either way. Sometimes professors will hire RAs during the year too. I'd also contact your PI job you had last summer and see if you could volunteer on Fridays or something.

I'm an RA right now. Tons of professors at my school have school year RAs, then summer RAs. The school posts a list of professors looking for help. There's a list posted in the elevator right now of some 20 professors looking for RAs at the moment.

Or what about working on campus? That would be convenient to structure your work schedule around your classes.
