Partner Business Plans

One of the most important steps to successfully making a move as a partner is to prepare a proper business plan that documents what you will bring to the table. As someone with a portable book, the ''flavor'' and quantity of that book plays an important role in maximizing your attractiveness to the firm or firms that you are targeting. This is true both in the early stages of job hunting and later on in the process. Executed properly, this document becomes the ne plus ultra of calling cards.
