1. Prepare to work long days. You've heard us say it before, we'll say it again. Looking for a job is a job, and it is part of your job as a professional law student. It means reaching out and constantly developing, growing, and nurturing your professional skills, network, and opportunities.
2. Learn to relish the door slam. Okay, maybe not relish, but don't despair either. YOU ARE NOT ALONE. Reach out to Law Career Services to maximize our resources and help you craft your job search strategy.
3. Don't make any major strategic decisions in haste. Don't assume that because your best friend found a job quickly that you need to follow their strategy. There are literally thousands of unique reasons why individual job searches unfold the way they do. If you've done your CSI homework by considering your Credentials, Skills & Interests, as well as carefully crafting your personal brand, elevator speech, materials, and job search strategy, you'll be making decisions based on your own insight, not whim.
