Although it's only December, today we're looking ahead to the summer. If you're a 1L, you're probably thinking about how (and where) you are going to find a summer job. We know a lot of you may be stressing out about this so we've got some useful tips and information about the basics of a 1L job search. 

In this episode we discuss:

  • Does it matter what you do after your 1L year of law school? 
  • What kind of job can you realistically expect to get? 
  • The importance of getting a job doing something "legal"
  • Different types of summer jobs you can apply to (judicial externships, firm jobs, government, academia, international work)
  • Using your personal or family network to find opportunities
  • How to find opportunities through your school
  • What you can expect to earn
  • Most important factors when deciding on a summer job
  • How to find out what an organization is looking for
  • What to do if you don't find a paid job
  • How to secure funding for summer jobs

Good luck in your job hunt!
