0L employment ideas?

Postby cpunch » Thu Nov 05, 2009 5:43 pm

What should I do as a 0L in order to make my resume look better 2 years from now? Are there any smallball government jobs I can get that would give me nice connections and/or experience?
(I start at UVA in fall 2010.)

I'm also curious about this. My plan as of now is to travel a bit and relax this summer, possibly reading one of the books suggested on here for 0Ls. As of right now, I have no intentions of getting an internship or serious summer work.

Haha, I'll be living at home (I'm going to school straight out of UG). I'd like to get some sort of job though, just not an internship like I've had the past few summers. I'd like to give myself a break before law school starts.

Good luck breaking into government with less than a year time commitment. Try a political campaign.

Maybe an internship then? I have no legal experience whatsoever.

Examine your own life and figure out something you can do.

People on the Internet can't help you.
