How to get a permanent offer after 2L summer

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Mar 29, 2015 1:26 pm

I am working for a small-midsize law firm who will not hire all of their summer associates. The firm emphasis a need to hire future attorneys that are entrepreneurial/can bring in new clients for the firm. However, they don't expect that you bring in business as a summer associate. So how can I show them, without overstepping, that I have that quality so that I am one of the few clerks that gets a permanent offer? Thanks!

Don't be weird. I can tell you from experience that at least a few in your class will be so weird that they will weed themselves out.

Didn't you ask this exact same question two days ago? viewtopic.php?f=23&t=245697&p=8492099&hilit=lobster+karl#p8492099

To be honest, the lobster analogy was spot on. Another tip to getting a full-time offer, try not to ask the same question/make the same mistake more than once.
