This is my second summer with Foley Hoag. As a 1L summer, I came in with a clear idea of what I wanted from a firm. I was looking for the opportunity to get substantive experience, receive meaningful feedback and mentoring, and also work at a place that was invested in my long term development and success. I received that from Foley Hoag last summer, so it was an easy decision to skip on-campus interviews and return this summer. At the beginning of my 1L summer, I struggled with imposter syndrome, wondering how I had fooled them into hiring me and if I was really capable of doing the work that was given to me. But as the summer progressed, I worked with partners and associates who entrusted me with important assignments while always pairing that with thoughtful feedback and guidance, and any support I needed. Because of that, my confidence grew. This summer, I jumped right in, fully confident in each assignment and task that I approached because I knew that no matter how busy someone was, I could ask anyone here for help and they would take the time to guide me and make sure I learned as much from the experience as I could. That supportive environment, where everyone is a mentor, willing to ensure that I succeed and build the foundation for the career I want, made it an easy choice to return to Foley Hoag.
