In this video, partner Jeff Rose discusses some strategies to land a right out of college, which include acquiring multiple forms of experience:

  1. Job experience. Do as many internships as you possibly can, since once you graduate, employers will see all the experience you have, and they will be more willing to take a chance on you. Even if the experience is not directly within your desired field, showing an ability to work with a manager, to put in the time and effort, will help in the long run. 
  2. Complementary experience. Think about part-time jobs that will help you develop new skills you can use later. 
  3. Real-world experience. Take your interests beyond theory and get involved, either with professionals in your field or with your friends and family. You can even set up a mock trial to get experience practicing like a pro.
