From my experience most recruiters don’t work with law clerks. I applied to firms and networked with partners to get my post clerkship position in NYC

For whatever reason, most clerks do not use recruiters. Just send your materials to the hiring manager.

Definitely not. Firms already pay clerkship bonuses. No reason they’d want to also pay a recruiter fee. Just reach out to firm recruiting contacts with a resume or, if there’s a particular practice group you’re interested in, perhaps with a partner in that group in the office you want to work in.

Transparency: most search agency fee agreements with big law specifically exclude the paying of fees for law school students and clerks. Reach out to your law schools career services, network (find out where prior clerks have gone) and send your resume to firms that interest you.

Do you ever find yourself hoping to get sick so you don’t have to work? I’ve been thinking this a lot and I feel like it may be a sign to just leave.

Advice requested : Problem : there’s a clear attraction on both ends with my direct superior (senior manager). We’ve been flirting indiscreetly for weeks now. I want to ask him out. At what point do I let my HR know I probably need to get put on a separate project.
