The usual resume format that we see daily and even every time we google for a sample resume always has the objective/summary at the top, education, and sometimes your personal information. Harrison Barnes disapproves of following the usual format when building your attorney resume. Here are his suggestions:
- Education and Bar Admissions should be at the bottom.
- Grades are not required unless you did exceptionally.
- Objectives/summaries are not necessary.
- Avoid sharing too much personal information for privacy purposes.
Okay. So 2011. So this particular resume the six, yeah, this particular, this looks like this one starts here. Okay. So the Barden missions remember go on the bottom. I would not put if you graduated in 2011, you didn't get admitted in 2012. I would just put the bar people, when you do this, when you put down the dates like this, if you didn't grow, if you didn't get your bar mission, like the same year, many times that you graduated it raises questions. Did you not want to practice law? Did you take the bar? So just don't even give people, they don't even allow people to think that all you do is you just put in the the, the law school and the graduate.
I mean that, that year, these Bard missions go on the bottom. Now they're not, they don't go on the top. And then let's see here. Okay. Honors pro bono honored. No, probably not necessary. Visiting students, no, not necessary. It's there's not really saying much they're representative cases.
Okay. Okay. And this may actually be the resume up here. Okay, good. All right. And I don't know that the representative cases belong on there. I would take those off probably. There's no reason to have those up there. Okay, here's the next resume. So professional experience, the training have that same experience in cybersecurity, national security, insider threats, litigation.
Okay. So this again, these professional things here are probably not that necessary. A lot of times, if you have top security plan or a top secret security clearance law firms like CNET, cause you're able to community are trustworthy cause I do background checks and so forth. So I would, you can leave that in other and then let's see national security and cyber law branch.
Wow. So this is our good resume. This person should they've been around a long time. They should get a job.
Yeah, this is a good resume. I don't really have any issues with there's the only issue with it as this person's been working for the government a long time. It can be difficult to transition into the government from the government to a law firm. But I think this is a an exceptional resume. I don't really have any problems with it.
I don't know that you need to have the professional summary at the top. I would try to get this down to one or two bullet points. I No, it looks like now, like you're getting into data privacy and and that sort of thing. And so this is a good resume. Yeah, there's a lot of things.
I'm sorry that I like about it. I don't really have any problems with it. And you should hopefully be able to get a job with a good law firm with it. It's just that you're know you've been out of school for awhile, but everything's exceptional with it. Academics are exceptional.
The stability is exceptional. There's nothing really that needs work. I don't think. And it's very, self-explanatory the only thing I would do is be to shorten it up. So this is a good resume. Even winter, the muck tower, the barristers Dean. So that's three to six semesters.
I, I think, I don't know that you want to put 36 semesters on there and just even at this point I would probably just, take off a lot of stuff. I don't even know what over the barristers is. I would just kick off a lot of this stuff here, if you did really well in college you got a full scholarship to, that's great.
And then, these different and then just say New Jersey and Florida. Yeah. Resume. So in these honors and awards are all good topics for professional experience.
