One of the strangest things that I see regularly is attorneys who make sexual orientation, politics, religion, and social activism part of their job search. I honestly do not understand why they do this. In the best cases, it ends up creating far fewer opportunities for you in the market. In most cases, it can do profound damage to your job search. This sort of stuff will doom you. READ MORE >
“Death in life is a mode of existence in which one has ceased all play; there are no further striving for titles. All competitive engagement with others has been abandoned. For some, though not for all, death in life is a misfortune, the resigned acceptance of one’s loser status, a refusal to hold any title up for recognition.”

Too many in the workforce, lawyers included, believe in “The One Call Close” theory.
If they’re selling something, they believe you should buy it from them right away.
And if they’re looking for a job, they believe they should be hired right off the bat.
If neither happens, the seller and job seeker moves on to the next target.
But it shouldn’t happen that way. Good salespeople know how to be persistent much in the same way strong job seekers are tenacious toward pursuing work.
Summary: If you constantly do this in your legal career you will be successful. Doing so will increase your chances of getting hired and help you develop stronger business relationships. READ MORE >
