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

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the awkward situation one of our viewers, Diane submitted. She has recently worked with a co-worker on a group project. When it came time to present the project at a meeting, Diane let her co-worker present. While it went great, the co-worker proceed to take credit for nearly all of Diane's work. Frustrating to say the least!

Starting a family is one of the biggest milestones in a person's life. It's in those first few months when a parent can really bond with their newborn and make lifelong memories. However, for some new dads, it can be difficult to juggle being a new parent while remaining dedicated to their career.

Fortunately, some companies have generous paternity leave policies that give new dads the ability to take time off of work to stay home with their child.
