Employment Advice

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Dec 06, 2016 12:02 am

At this point, I have two options.

Option 1: I can work at a small firm for one-half (second half) of the summer in a market that I don't want to work in after graduation for some money and leave the other half open for something better (preferably mid law in one of my target cities).

Option 2: Accept an offer at a firm for the entire summer in a market that I more open to working at after graduation, but is still not ideal.

I am at a T18 and confident my grades will improve a little after this semester to where I should be above the median.

What do you think? Is it wishful thinking that I still have shot at landing something good for the other half if I keep hustling?

There's still sooooo much time to get something else.

What market are you trying to crack? I think that'd help anyone trying to give you advice.
