Your Questions About Finding A Summer Job College
How will my low high school GPA in relation to my high college GPA effect my chances of finding a good job?
Currently, I am a first semester senior at a university in the Big Ten with a GPA that rounds up to a 3.4 and a major GPA of 3.6 in Computer Science. However, I had a high school GPA of 1.3 before I went to community college and fixed it up with a 3.78 GPA. I noticed that many employers still ask for my high school GPA on their formal applications for internships and I was wandering how my high school GPA would effect my chances for an internship during the summer. How would an employer view this kind of negative information? I would appreciate any type of feedback that I could get.Thanks.
No one cares about your HS GPA. Once you graduate from college it will never come up again. Hopefully this summer they will see that you are working hard in college and overlook your HS GPA.

Is it hard for first year part time law students to find a summer associate position?
I recently was admitted into DePaul College of Law as a part time student. I met with an advisor who told me I would be able to switch to full time after my first year ending in May. My question is, will it be hard to find a good summer associate job after my first year since I only have one year of part time law school under my belt? Will it help that they know that I will not be full time?
Yes it will, especially since many large firms are discontinuing these programs due to a glut of lawyers. It is almost certain that none of the big firms will pick you up, but you can probably find a job clerking with a medium or smaller size firm. The pay probably won’t be great but you need the experience. If worst comes to worst and you can’t find a paying job, volunteer somewhere. Though it might not seem like it right now, the experience and contacts you get from clerking during the summer are worth much more than money you earn.
Job searching — Is this a good idea?
I’m a 19 year old college student and I’m trying to find a summer job. I’ve turned in six applications so far. Someone told me it looks good when you call the manager to “follow up” with your application after you’ve turned it in. Is this a good idea? And how long should I wait to call? Should I blatantly ask for an interview?
Any help in this category would be much appreciated.
Following up is fine and you should wait about a week. Do not be pesky with your calls.
You can say you are following up on your application and ask what are the chances you will get an interview. State run career centers have a summer job program for 16-24 year old youth. Contact your closest state run career center
