This career counselor is literally the cancer that is killing the legal profession.
I had similar advice my 1L year from Career Services - don't try too hard for a 1L SA, maybe you'd like to hear about an exciting summer in a judicial externship? Load of shit - I got a 1L SA, turned it into a 2L SA, and turned that into an offer.
Career Services steers everyone at my school towards judicial externships 1L, and treats most everyone as just a number who will hopefully be employed after school. Of course, once you ignore them and actually get a 1L SA, and show yourself to be employable, Career Services is your best friend ever.
