If you’re currently on the lateral market and looking for a job, whether it’s opportunistically or out of necessity, one of the most difficult things can be managing your time and budget – typically the timing is the most difficult part to manage if you are currently employed, as an attorney in an in-demand practice area can be extremely busy.  And if you are out of work, or have recently relocated without a new position in hand, managing your job search on a budget can be quite difficult if you are relying on your savings and have no new guaranteed income to count on.

Both of these factors come heavily into play once you get to the point in the job search where you begin to field interview requests, and especially if you are looking to interview or land a job with a law firm that is not where you are currently located.
