Pre-Law School employment

Postby ArundelSt » Thu Feb 06, 2014 7:43 pm

0L here, I have all of my applications in and I am currently between jobs (not fired or anything like that, worked previously as a paralegal for an NYC boutique firm and abroad doing marketing) with an awkward amount of time until law school begins in August. In terms of hiring later on (OCI etc) does it matter what I do over the next six months ? I.e. Will it give me an advantage to go work for a law firm, volunteer at legal aid, or a PD office or something like that? Or will it put me at a disadvantage to go hike the Appalachian trail or work on an organic farm in Oregon or something along those lines ? Any advice is appreciated and if this is the wrong forum I apologize in advance.

6 month resume gaps are not good

Doings something legally related couldn't hurt. It also wouldn't necessarily help.
