Winter break as 1L - need to stick around?

Postby hellojd » Mon Sep 16, 2013 9:06 pm

Hey guys,

I'm a 1L, and I know it's really early for this but I'm starting to think out travel plans for the winter break since I plan to go overseas to visit some family. My question is, as long as I do the necessary mailings and apps starting around Dec 1st, is there any need to stick around and be "accessible" via phone during the break? I'll have intermittent internet access, but more specifically I'm wondering for 1L firm gigs or PI jobs people start conducting networking events or interviews 1st or 2nd week of January.

Thanks!

My concern here is that some firms schedule the interviews during Xmas break cause they know what is when you are most available... Now the reality of this is, not to be too big of a dick, that this should not be too big of a deal for your plans because 1L SAs are a rare beast.

Thanks for the reply. I do definitely realize they are hard to come by, although it seems somewhat possible in my circumstances (CCN, would likely qualify for diversity gigs) so just wanted to throw it out there. But I'm also curious about PI stuff as well and their timetables.

Hiring in New York for 1L SA's tends to happen a littler later, so you should be okay if that's where you're looking.
