Tips for the Impending Interview Season

 This post is written by Shannon Frankel, a blogger and former lawyer turned stay at home mom.  You can read Shannon’s blog at: http://butidohavealawdegree.blogspot.com. Ahhh, it’s June.  Exams are over, and the summer is here.  But lest you law students get too relaxed, remember: For many of you, interviews are just around the corner.  I’ve been there, done that, and I remember it well.  In all fairness, when I was going through the on-campus interview process at Penn Law in 2003, the climate was certainly different.  Firm offers were plentiful, and pretty much every student I knew received one.  If they…

Anatomy of a Job Search: The Resume

Welcome to 2011! Hope you had a great vacation. Now back to work.

Time to polish up those job application materials.I've already ranted against those who ignore the most basic points of the cover letter.  No need to rehash that except to say that the cover letter and resume are symbiotic.  Any change to one should at least prompt a reread, if not an edit of…

Essentially, 24 hours' worth of anonymous comments provided a comprehensive overview of all the factors that effect professional satisfaction and should (but rarely do) factor into the decision to pursue a career in…

Anatomy of a Job Search: The Cover Letter

1Ls and 2Ls are engaged in summer job searches, 3Ls are looking for post-graduation employment, and the rest of us are perennially thinking about what comes next. In other words, listen up, all of you.Over lunch yesterday a friend was sharing some of the more humorous resume details she's seen as a judicial clerk reading externship applications. Beyond these funny stories, the most important lesson that emerged was how little thought applicants give to their cover letters.Here's the deal: she works for a bankruptcy judge and the first thing she looks for is some reason, really any reason, why the…

Well I was anyway.I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but you really need to focus on exams and then as soon as they're done you need to focus with similar intensity on summer work.  You want to come back to campus in January with irons in the fire and a clear idea of how you're going to get the summer position of your choice.Many law firms have created…
