Legal Resumes That Do Their Job
To create an effective resume for your legal career, you need to be aware of recruitment trends and the needs of employers. While formal resume writing and presentation has formed its own grammar and become stereotyped to a large extent, the only way to break free and turn your resume into a true weapon is reflect employer needs.
The Philosophy behind an Effective Resume
Simply matching your resume with an advertised job description is essential, but insufficient. Most job applicants already have a resume of some sort. However, many such resumes need polish and focus to be effective. It is also quite common to find people neglecting to update their resumes or periodically improve them.
A Resume Addendum
An addendum to a resume is basically an add on document listing accomplishments, specific projects undertaken, representative cases, and basically any relevant data which cannot be accommodated within the resume portfolio. Why is it necessary? For those with voluminous information to showcase within the limit of two pages (the maximum a standard resume is allowed), it is wise to have a resume with a two or three page addendum.

Resume Guide for Recent Graduates - Part 1
Resume writing can be an overwhelming experience for fresh law graduates. Although it is not a simple task to be writing your resume for the first time, you should not panic if you find yourself staring into a blank page with only your name at the top.
How Important is Volunteer Work
For some reason, many people shy away from including volunteer experience or community involvement of any kind on their resumes. While they firmly believe that the experience is important, they also feel that potential employers are solely concerned with their paid jobs.
Do I need to show I've researched the firm/company I'm applying to?
Your resume or your cover letter bears the primary role of introducing you to the hiring managers. For this purpose, you need to apply your skills more on showcasing your special talents, uniqueness and your ability to add value to the company you are applying to. Apart from referring to the name of the company and the position being applied for in the cover letter, you do not really need to exhibit your knowledge about the company. It is only when you are preparing for the interview stage that it is absolutely essential to do a thorough research of the firm, company or organization you wish to join.
Creating a Winning Legal Resume
A resume is the central document in a legal job search. It is one of the most effective tools used to market and sell the skills of legal professionals to the employers concerned. If your resume contains grammatical or formatting errors, it is less likely to be considered by employers. A well-written and a properly formatted resume goes a long way to get you to the interview.
How to avoid Common Errors in Resumes
Recruiters are not blind to mistakes made on a resume. Unfortunately, a single mistake on a resume can class the applicant poorly in the eyes of the employer and two or more can send the candidate's job application in the trash box.
