Just curious, what kind of experience was it?
Because sometimes, they can be marginally useful. They won't overcome a class rank firms won't take, but if it's in an area that makes you unique and may fit in a niche practice area of there's, they can be. I know someone in my school, for instance, who interned at a utility company. This got him call backs with firms that specialize in that area. (Note: he was not a science background guy.)
Its experience with a health insurance company, Highmark, which is the biggest health insurer in the Pittsburgh area. So I mean it is a legitimate corporation. I've just been reading a lot of threads lately about K-JD's striking out without any work experience, so I was wondering if basically a year adding all the summers and winters i've worked at a pretty large company would at all be useful for hiring purposes. Everytime I ready one of those K-JD no work experience threads I was hoping they were referring more to people who spent the summers landscaping or babysitting, but I just wanted some clarification.
