What comes to mind for you when you think about networking?
I’ve come across a number of lawyers and law students who have very different views about what networking entails. For some, they’re excited and can’t wait for the opportunity to meet new people. For others, they associate it with business cards and awkward conversations. Wherever you land on the spectrum, the truth is networking is relevant at all stages of your legal career, and I’m showing you how to navigate your next event with greater confidence and ease.
Whether you’re a student in the job-seeking process looking for tips as you prep for interviews and career fairs, or you’re further on in your career and want to expand your network, attract new clients, or raise your profile, you’re in the right place. Listen in to hear my top seven best-practice dos and don’ts when it comes to networking.
