Ambitious 3L Scoring (points) with Hiring Partners
A Hat Tip to Above the Law for Posting this and to Legal Antics for making me aware of this juicy tidbit. A 3L from a "good school" in the D.C. area took an unusual approach to networking when she posted the following ad in the Craigslist Personals:
Are you a lonely lawyer? - 24
Maybe we can do something about that. I'm an ambitious 3L at a good school, and I'd really like to land a job at a terrific firm. Unfortunately, my grades and the job market aren't the best. Ideally, I would like to meet a cute hiring partner for "networking." I'm sexy, petite, and very fun to be with. If you're interested, please tell me a bit about yourself. I'd be happy to exchange pics.
Now I'll be the first to admit that the job market is tough. I have several friends who are still looking for jobs, several in the top ten (not percent, literally the top ten people). Its a buyer's market when it comes to
slave labor law students. Kudos to this woman for trying to make the most of a bad situation. Though the Professor is a little curious about what a video resume might look like.
