What's stopping you from just quitting at 8 months/when you feel like it's not right?

First: I appreciate you taking the time to help me C2! Second: I spoke to my recruiter who informed me that this has happened in the past, so luckily it’s not like I have to craft this process. One of my current projects is getting extended into another phase, and my plan was to stay on it, doing the same hours I’m doing now (20-25 per week)

what type of firm do you work at? def not gonna happen at mbb

at my b4 (Deloitte ) there was such thing as externship. about halfway I would bring it up to your senior manager or partner

I think the company will find someone else who definitely wants to work full time instead of dealing with you and your situation.

8 months because I want to reassess if consulting is the path I want to pursue at that time. Note: the return offer is for 2020 summer, not FT

I’m still in school, that’s the only reason the idea was really brought up

I remember meeting someone at EY who did this type if thing after doing the diversity internship. The part time work was as more internally facing work though (e.g. how can our practice expand in to X market). Might also be possible that you help out with some data collection (i.e. benchmarking) tasks

Yeah the business development stuff sounds interesting, I’ve done a bit of that over the past couple weeks although my main focus has been client work. I’ll definitely bring this up though, thanks!

Mmh, I don’t think they’ll offer this kind of flexibility at the staff level. Doesn’t make sense based on what’s being brought to the table

Would be intern level as opposed to staff, but I can see where your coming from

How soon is too soon to be preparing for a lateral move? I did my 1L summer internship in a niche area of securities law, loved it, took courses on it. I decided I wanted to explore securities law a little more broadly and not to pigeonhole myself. The firm I’m at is great—doing sec lit—but has zero work in that niche area that I liked. I’m afraid that I am passing on a passion, and I don’t want to get too “old” for a firm to take me on if I have zero experience in a specialty area. Advice? Thx
