Product Description:

The primary goal of most law students is to get a job upon graduation. While law school teaches many things, how to get a law job is not one of them. Thousands of law students thus graduate each year without a job, without any prospects, and without the faintest idea how to land their first job with a law firm. In law school, however, the competition for top jobs is intense - and the special needs of law firm recruiters are unknown to law students. This book is an insider's look at the secrets of landing a dream law firm job.

Product Description:
Covering the often frustrating process of researching and securing a law firm job and how to succeed once a job is secured, this is a mentoring guide for new lawyers at the beginning stages of their careers. It embodies a collective wisdom about the things lawyers wished they knew at the beginning of their careers, rather than the end. Subjects covered include traditional and creative job hunting, writing resumes and cover letters, first and second interviews, and developing relationships with firms as a summer associate. Using real-life examples, this reference also focuses on the ultimate goal of being a satisfied and fulfilled lawyer and discusses many of the daily workplace issues that new lawyers are often afraid to talk about-handling firm partners and assignments, courtroom etiquette, organizational tools, and dating within the firm.

The Street-Smart Paralegal s Guide to: Getting a Job With a Lawyer or Law Firm
 
Product Description:
CONGRATULATIONS! YOU’RE A PARALEGAL!
NOW WHAT?

Paralegal programs are great to teach you the basics – how to write, how to analyze, different areas of law, etc., but they limit your exposure to what happens next. Sure, a career advisor will spend 1-2 days explaining how to format your resume, how to draft a cover letter and how you can go to them to critique it and get help with your job search.

But think about it – you were just in a class with at least 20-30 other aspiring paralegals that learned the same things you did.

After all, the structure of the paralegal program has to be consistent for all of its students, from the courses they offer to the career advice they give at the end.

Plus, once you’ve completed the program, you’re no longer classmates. For the most part, you’re all competing for the same law firm jobs - along with past program graduates who may also be hunting for a job.

Most job-hunting guides have the same problem. Because they are intended as a general, how-to guide on finding a job, the majority give you a one-size-fits-all approach that may or may not work for you.

The way to get an edge is to make yourself stand out. But how?

Introducing The Street-Smart Paralegal’s Guide to: Getting a Job with a Lawyer or Law Firm
Instead of the usual job search advice, this guide gives you a step-by-step system to find the paralegal job of your dreams!

Discover how to:

1. Easily create a plan of action;

2. Explore different areas of law;

3. Find lawyers and law firms you’d like to work for;

4. Network effectively to make connections;

5. Ace the interview;

6. Properly follow up after the interview;

7. Choose from multiple job offers; and,

8. Ensure you made the right choice.

Written by a paralegal that’s been in the trenches and experienced the highs and lows of the job search since 2002, The Street-Smart Paralegal’s Guide to: Getting a Job with a Lawyer or Law Firm will help you avoid that dead-end job and create a career that’s as unique as you are!

Product Description:
You get good grades in college, pay a small fortune to put yourself through law school, study hard to pass the bar exam, and finally land a high-paying job in a prestigious firm. You're happy, right? Not really. Oh, it beats laying asphalt, but after all your hard work, you expected more from your job. What gives?

The Happy Lawyer examines the causes of dissatisfaction among lawyers, and then charts possible paths to happier and more fulfilling careers in law. Eschewing a one-size-fits-all approach, it shows how maximizing our chances for achieving happiness depends on understanding our own personality types, values, strengths, and interests.

Covering everything from brain chemistry and the science of happiness to the workings of the modern law firm, Nancy Levit and Doug Linder provide invaluable insights for both aspiring and working lawyers. For law students, they offer surprising suggestions for selecting a law school that maximizes your long-term happiness prospects. For those about to embark on a legal career, they tell you what happiness research says about which potential jobs hold the most promise. For working lawyers, they offer a handy toolbox--a set of easily understandable steps--that can boost career happiness. Finally, for firm managers, they offer a range of approaches for remaking a firm into a more satisfying workplace.

Read this book and you will know whether you are more likely to be a happy lawyer at age 30 or age 60, why you can tell a lot about a firm from looking at its walls and windows, whether a 10 percent raise or a new office with a view does more for your happiness, and whether the happiness prospects are better in large or small firms.

No book can guarantee a happier career, but for lawyers of all ages and stripes, The Happy Lawyer may give you your best shot.
