How useful is publishing for the job hunt?

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Aug 28, 2013 3:40 pm

I'm currently a 3L at a decent school with a solid, but not great GPA. I recently had one article accepted for publication by a journal at another school, and I am about 1/2 of the way done with a second article, which I think is a much better piece and have hopes that it will be published as well.

Does anyone have any insight as to how much employers give a crap about getting published as a student? Is anybody impressed by this, or is it mostly a circle-jerk?
