summer law clerk
So I got lucky this summer and have been working for a small firm in downtown at a PAID summer law clerk position. It is not in a field I orginally anticipated joining or even knew existed really but that is besdes the point. I once heard that "if it don't make dollars then it don't make sense." I undertand the appeal of the unpaid internship position. Believe me, I have been doing them steadily since Junior year of college! Anyways, getting paid to do something is really uncomprable in the grand scheme of things in my eyes. Once someone has wanted your employ so mightily that they are paying you, out of their own pocket and especially someone who is still in school, then that speaks for itself really. So, honestly I have no complaints and could not be happier. I will also be continuing through the school year which is another added plus, and also looks good on the resume as being able to handle both a job and schoolwork. I have said it before and I will say it again, I am going to working extrememly hard but it is well worth the reward of a solid career in the future. Peace.
