Got my summer info packet from my firm this weekend, and among the requested info on the clerkship questionnaire was the following:
What is you favorite candy?
How do I decide that? Is this going to be a one-time welcoming gift, in which case I'd go with something dense and chocolaty, or something that they'll keep my office permanently supplied with, in which case I'd have to go Jolly Ranchers or Junior Mints? Is this some sort of test? Like, do they only make offers to clerks choosing candies that show up on some predetermined list? Or is this a chance to test my firm's willingness to go the extra mile for me? Should I request something out-of-production, like Cherry Clan? Or something they can only get me in Australia, like Cherry Ripe? And what's this fixation on cherry stuff about, anyway?
Is the entire summer going to be full of questions like this?
(In other news, though the auction failed, BuffaloWings&Vodka may have secured corporate sponsorhip after all. Stay tuned. )
