Ask for what you want...
Sales professionals -- people who live and die by their results -- know that you have to "Ask for the Order." Job searching and networking are no different -- you have to ask for what you want.
Interviewing and Job Searching -- 7 out of 10 people walk out of an interview and the interviewer has no idea if the candidate is actually interested in the job. Look the interviewer straight in the eye, shake hands and say "I am very interested in continuing in the interview process, and hope to work for you in the (summer; fall; next judicial term)."
Networking -- After slaving over the text of a letter or email explaining who you are, don't neglect to ask for what you want: a 20-minute meeting next week, a ten-minute phone call by the end of this week; a chance to shadow a prosecutor or defender; or an invitation to a bar association committee meeting.
Think of it this way: Telepathy is not a job search tool -- unless you are applying for one or two jobs in Las Vegas. You have to ask!
