In this Q&A clip, Harrison discusses the recommended number of pages for an attorney's resume to be effective.
He emphasizes that the best resumes are typically the shortest and that a one-page resume is ideal. He notes that many professional resume companies write lengthy introductions with a lot of detail about a person's experience, but this is optional. Instead, a one-page resume with a transaction sheet attached is sufficient.
Harrison also suggests that a longer resume may negatively indicate an attorney's qualifications. He advises attorneys to be concise and clarify their resumes to make them as effective as possible.

You should try to go to events. You should try to go to bar association events and learn about things. You should try to go to events in your school. You should try to watch speakers, and you should try to connect with these speakers afterward, and so that's something. Doing that will show you the kinds of things you should be. You can be interested in the kinds of people you can be interested in, things that make you interested.
Some people will go to a talk on tax law and think it's the most boring thing in the world and feel like jumping off a building. Other people will go and think, wow, I can't believe where's this text I've been in my life.
So going to talks, listening to different people's experiences and videos, emailing people saying you enjoyed the talk they gave online, or just anything you can do to connect and get out there can be extremely helpful.
