For Job Candidates
Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Email
Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: After exchanging emails and reviewing your resume, I would prefer to have a 15-30 minute conversation to discuss your career goals, your reasons for your interest in exploring available opportunities and what you will find most-appealing in a new opportunity. I will assist with resume changes, interview preparation, interview follow-up (i.e., thank you letters and/or emails) and offer considerations.
Things That Impress You In A Candidate: I am impressed by mature, grounded and forward-thinking candidates who have taken some time to consider and identify those aspects of their current employment experience that they find unsatisfying. I am also impressed by open-minded and ‘coachable’ candidates, with the desire and courage to pursue their dreams.
Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: To be considered for a given opportunity, candidates must possess excellent law school credentials, a team-oriented practice approach and a genuine desire to continue to grow as an attorney, whether in a law firm or corporate legal (i.e., in-house) setting. Strong interpersonal skills and a willingness to openly discuss those aspects of a candidate’s current employment that she/he wants to improve in a new environment.
Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: An inability or unwillingness to be open and honest when discussing pertinent aspects of a candidate’s employment history or interests will disqualify a candidate from consideration.
Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes
