The price tag on law school can be overwhelming, and the plan for a lot of potential lawyers is to find a job at a big firm—which comes with a big salary—to pay off those loans. But what if you want to work in public service, which isn’t known for doling out high salaries?
People love to tell you how to land that nice, cushy, Big Law job after graduation. Get straight A’s. Go to a top school. Earn a spot on law review.
All good advice, even if significantly easier said than done.
But what if I told you there’s something you can do right now that would increase your chances of landing a job after graduation almost as much as anything else?
Well, there is! (I sound like Vince from the ShamWow! Commercials; imagine me screaming this last sentence at you.)
Get a job.
