I am a second-year student at Harvard Law School, and will be returning to my home state of California for internships in both Palo Alto and Los Angeles this summer at Brobeck, Phleger & Harrison. If I am fortunate enough to receive an offer for permanent employment from them, I will have to decide whether my summer has been, in some subjective sense of the word, a “success.” How will I define success? I could define the success or failure of my summer internship by the amount of training I receive, the amount of feedback I get, or the amount of exposure I get to my area of interest. I want to work with high-tech, emerging growth companies, as they define the topography of business and law in the new economy. All of these are things that I (genuinely) told my employer were important to me in a summer program. But to restrict my definition of success to such parameters would be to let the interview process define my job search rather than the other way around.
