Texas Advocacy Project, Inc. – Virtual
How did you get your job?
I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to clerk with the Texas Advocacy Project this summer. I learned of the position through the OCS Spring Recruitment Program and was thrilled to have the chance to work with this organization.
What did you like most about your job?
TAP offers a variety of services to Texans across the state, including community trainings on cycles of abuse and legal aid for survivors. This position offered me the opportunity to work with attorneys who share my passion about these issues. The attorneys I worked with were fantastic and allowed me to get lots of hands-on experience with legal research and document drafting.
How did your job change in a virtual workplace? How did you interact with your co-workers?
I was concerned that a remote clerk experience may not offer the same quality feedback and assignments, however the TAP legal team largely operates remotely (even pre-pandemic) so virtual collaboration is built in to the organization’s culture.
