3 Keys When Looking for a Different Law Firm Job

If you are at a point with your legal career where you feel a change would do you go, are you willing to make such a change?

Yes, such a change can be a big step for you. That is both from a professional and personal standpoint.

That said it could be one of the best choices you make going forward.

So, if a different law firm job is what you want, what will it take to get it?

Use All Available Resources to Locate the Right Position

In your efforts to find a different firm to work with, here are three keys to hone in on:

  1. Get help with the search – Why do all the searching on your own when there is help available? For instance, you can work with an attorney recruiter. Such a recruiter can do a lot of digging for you while you continue your current job. If you have already left your most recent position, you can take some of that time to network more with pros. It also never hurts to let family and friends know what type of firm you are looking for. They may either work with or have used the services of a particular firm. As such, they might think they know a good fit for you. Before you know it, you could wind up with someone growing a law firm or one that is already quite established.
  2. Knowing what you want to practice – Of course knowing what line of law you want to practice is always a good thing. For one, you may have a specific type of legal focus that you do not want to shy away from. On the flip side, you may be open to working with a firm that has various practice areas for folks seeking help. Also, think about if you are willing to move or if you prefer to stay in the general area you live now. Having such a thing decided is not a bad thing. That said having some flexibility with where you live can open up some more doors. 
  3. Putting your best foot forward – As any recruiter above will tell you, your best foot forward is key. That is when not only working on things like your resume but also when you interview with prospects. You have to appear as appealing and competent as possible. Failing to do so could end up closing one door after another for you. It stands to reason you could face a fair amount of competition for too few positions. As a result, you have to stand out for all the right reasons. If you do not, you can easily get passed over if not careful. Take time to work on your resume, interview skills, and much more. At the end of the day, you will thank yourself for doing so. 

With all that to think about, is it time you had a different law firm to work with and prosper as time goes by?
