You don’t write what kind of job you’re looking for! Figure that out and then edit your resume to that job. You might want to compress your resume a bit, it’s probably too long.

Unless you’re an attorney, secretary is probably the best way to go in a law firm, even better than law clerk. They are paid very well and they leave at 5pm. While they are working for more attorneys now than in the past, There are also IT people, data input clerks, receptionists, HR personnel. (My dh is a partner at biglaw.)

Why do you want to work at a law firm? If you want to be an attorney, you’ll want to focus your energies into getting into the best tier law school you can. Make sure whatever job you take leaves you time for school.

Right now is not a great time to look for a law firm job, even the biglaw firms have felt the sting and have cut back on staff and attorneys. A lot of firms will hire temp clerks and attorneys to fill in if they have big cases and need more help. You might call a temp agency that specializes in law firms to see if you are qualified.

Good luck!

Charles asks…

Is this too good to be true?

I received an email from Career Builder and the person wanted me to respond to a Gmail account. I just replied asking for more info and I received this email. This time it was from a company email address. Does anyone know if this is real or a scam?

Thanks in advance!

It does not ‘smell’ right. The mix of information is wrong. If it was genuine, it would provide more facts and less bull. The range of expected duties is not plausible for the position. If they are who they say they are, why wouldn’t they give an actual address for their headquarters and specific information about their products or services. I do not believe the line about why they were using gmail. It is either untrue or it shows they can’t run a business …. Or both.

The idea that THEY tell you what hours you will work and what you will do is incompatible with the assertion that you would be “an independent contractor”.

If, as they claim, they are a limited company, then they must be registered with Companies House (the UK registry of companies). It is worth searching the register and finding out all you can about the purported sender of the email.

This smells as though it might be a pyramid scam – or ‘networked selling’ or one of the other many names by which such structures are known. They are so well known as a ‘web outsourcing provider’, they do not come up on a search engine.

Be cautious, my friend. ’nuff said!
