The Experience Section Of Your Resume
Whether you are a new or an experienced attorney, the Experience section of the resume is the toughest section to write. If you're a new attorney, it's tough because you often have to make a few menial tasks sound impressive. If you're a veteran, it's tough because you have to encapsulate years of experience in a few short paragraphs or sentences and your perception of your experience will change with each passing year. Deciding how to present your experience requires a good amount of brainstorming. Make sure you don't rely on the stock job descriptions given to you by your employers. This might seem like a perfect solution-all you need to do is cut and paste. But merely listing your employer's version of what you do takes away from the entire purpose of a resume, which is to present your experience from your point of view.
The Education Section Of Your Resume
'Where did you go to law school?' This is probably the first question you're asked after you tell someone you're an attorney (that is, after you're asked to provide free legal advice). Because the law is an academic discipline, a lot of importance is placed on an attorney's academic pedigree, especially in the case of law students and recent graduates. Depending on where you got your J.D., it may be something you declare boastfully or something you are more apt to whisper. Law schools come in all shapes and sizes and all levels of prestige. This article will help you to decide how much emphasis you should give to your education and what you can do to make up for a less-than-stellar academic background.
Stay On Top Of The Job Search Process!
Whether you're a new graduate or you've been in the workforce for decades, it's never too late to start putting some serious work into your self-marketing materials. The problem many experienced attorneys run into when trying to write a resume is that their heads start to spin when they begin to think about what they've done over a 10- or 20- year career. That's why it's a good idea to start early.
Show That You've Been Moving Up, Not Across Or Down
The most recent position on your resume should carry the most weight in terms of space alloted, and your oldest position should carry the least. This shows a trend of upward mobility in your career. Before an employer even reads a word of your resume, he/she will get the sense that you have held increasingly responsible positions as you've made your way through the working world.
Should You Include A Hobbies/Interests/Personal Section On Your Resume?
The Hobbies/Interests/Personal section of the resume is the section that usually sparks the most debate. Some argue that this section generates the most interesting conversations in an interview. Others feel that anything not having to do with professional experience, particularly legal experience, is useless and irrelevant.

Internships, Clerkships, Summer Associate, And Junior Attorney Positions: How To Make Yours Stand Out
The duties and responsibilities associated with legal internships, clerkships, summer associate, and junior attorney positions tend to be very similar. The practice areas you were exposed to and the types of cases you assisted with might have been different, but for the most part, pre-bar legal jobs consist of a lot of research, drafting, and observing.
