Summer Jobs For Students 2010

Eleanor Said:

Summer law student intern program for 2010?

We Answered:

This is what I do know:

Jobs in the field of Law are drying up FAST!! This is just not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING vocational field. Many reasons. Many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. Also, we simply already have WAY TOO MANY Legal Professionals - we have an absolute GLUT!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)

Even IF you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking, many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of THEIR bills paid <<THIS would be your competition. And the competition is FIERCE!!

Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just SATURATED with WAY TOO MANY Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. The root of the problem is we have too many law schools. We are in a recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students ANYTHING to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) AND these schools continue to recruit and churn out even MORE graduates.............

If you don't believe me, then just do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call a local law firm - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring..................

In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >EACH YEAR< from 200 law schools in the United States. The competition is VERY keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (served on the Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)

If you want a JOB when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the field of >>>HEALTHCARE! <THIS is where the jobs are! and scholarships! ESPECIALLY with your background - believe or not.

Good luck.

Summer jobs abroad for 2010?

We Answered:

Hi,

I au paired in Denmark in 2006/7. I got to live with a Danish family, experiencing their way of life firsthand, accommodation and meals plus flight to/from SA was paid for by the family. I also got to travel to many European countries while living in Denmark and study the language. Cheap to travel when you are already in EU. I got to do some of my degree courses through UNISA. All this while earning around 6gran a month. All I did was save and travel with the cash. Europe will never be that cheap again, not to mention incredible.

You need to buy the Evening Herald, the job section is on a Thursday. You also need to walk around the City Centre, small places put their ads in the shop windows.
Good Luck.
