bq. Matthew Toll is in his final year at the Tulane University School of Law and, like many fellow students approaching graduation, is seeking an associate’s position paying at least $70,000 per year. The 25-year-old, though, has taken a unique approach to that hunt. Last month, he sent 20-30 law firms his resume and a five-page interview request drafted to resemble a legal filing … Noting that, “I am VERY hungry right now,” Toll promised prospective employers that, “If my mother’s funeral was the day of a key deposition, I would do the eulogy via teleconference after the deposition.”
Here’s the beginning:
bq. Plaintiff, Matthew S. Toll, pursuant to his lifelong dream of practicing law, hereby requests Defendant, Wolff & Samson, PC, to provide Plaintiff with an interview, whether in person, or via telephone, in Response to Plaintiff’s First Request for an Interview.
