Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today, we're talking with ex-BigLaw recruiter Sadie Jones about how to deal with difficult work situations and make the most out of your summer job experience.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Taking ownership of your work if you're given very little direction when you start
  • How to turn things around if your first work assignment doesn't go well
  • What should you do if you're busy with assignments and someone is pressuring you to do pro bono work?
  • Handling inappropriate behavior from coworkers
  • What if the summer is coming to a close and you get the feedback you may not be getting a full-time offer?
  • What's next if you get a no offer/cold offer?
  • What to do if you do get an offer but you want to see what other options are out there
