Event description


This is an event in a series designed exclusively for attorneys, recent graduates, or law students who want to use their JD for something other than private practice.

Interviewing as a lawyer is uniquely challenging. There are a number of biases, stereotypes, and identity issues that every one must learn to address when searching for a non-traditional role. This session will involve identifying cues, insights into advanced interview tactics, and practice with the tools. Each session will follow the following format:

  1. Introductions/Announcements (10 Minutes)

  2. Blocker of the Week (15 Minutes)

  3. Success Analysis (15 Minutes)

  4. Exercise (30 Minutes)

  5. Recap and Assignments (10 Minutes)

Attendees who successfully complete the program will leave with:

  • Clear direction for their career

  • Resources to move their career in the desired direction

  • Training to make their goal a reality

  • Practice, support, and feedback throughout the program to constantly improve

This is a series of events that will meet weekly for 10 weeks. The schedule of topics in the series are:

  1. Finding Your Path

  2. Identifying Targets

  3. Resume Makeover

  4. Building a Successful Social Media Presence

  5. Navigating References

  6. Networking to Leave Practice

  7. Surviving the Screen: JDAdvantage Interviewing

  8. Advanced Interviewing: JDAdvantage Tactics
