Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today, we're talking with ex-BigLaw recruiter Sadie Jones about what you can learn from a summer job that maybe wasn't your first choice, or that seems like a great fit but ends up less than ideal once you start working.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Valuable skills you can get out of a summer position, even if it's not ideal
  • Handling going into a summer job somewhat disappointed
  • What if you expected the job to be a great fit but turns out not to be?
  • Working and networking virtually
  • Is it ever okay to quit a summer position if it's going poorly?
