Ms. JD Weekly Roundup

Ms. JD Weekly Roundup: Week ending November 7, 2014

Are you offering clients what they really need? Gregory B. Jordan, former global managing partner of Reed Smith and current general counsel of PNC Financial Services Group, offers ten things he wishes he had known when he was in private practice.

Almost 90% of recruiters use LinkedIn, if you’re thinking about making a move, make sure your LinkedIn profile is working for you. There are a lot of factors to consider when looking to make a lateral move but would you think to ask about the new firm’s commitment to business development? Moving from one firm to another can be a big change, but what about moving from law firm partner to high school teacher?

U.S. District Court Judge Beth Labson Freeman talks about life on the federal bench and how it differs from her experiences as a state court judge while Kirsten Gillibrand and Julianne Margulies talk about their work advocating for survivors of sexual assault. Fabiola Gianotti is the first female scientist to lead CERN as Director-General.

How do you manage your stress levels? 79% of surveyed executives said they recognized the importance of renewal activities to relieve stress but only 35% said their firms have programs to encourage participation in these activities. Effective time management can help control stress levels. Jack Dorsey, co-founder of Twitter and the CEO of Square, apparently gives each day a theme to keep his productive momentum high.

The latest report from the World Economic Forum brought the disappointing news that it will take 81 years for the worldwide gender gap to close if progress continues at the current rate. Election day brought the news that a ballot measure to add gender equality to Oregon’s constitution passed with around two-thirds of voters supporting the measure and there are 100 women in Congress for the first time ever!

John Oliver’s Doggy Supreme Court now has the RBG seal of approval.

If you’ll be in Los Angeles on November 13, join Ms JD at Wolf and Crane for Ms. JD’s Global Education Fund Annual Los Angeles Networking Happy Hour from 6-9:00 p.m!
