What kinds of skills, experience, and working habits do in-house recruiters look for in prospective attorneys hoping to go in-house? In this workshop, experienced in-house counsel will discuss the best strategies needed for attorneys to land in-house employment. We will discuss ways to gain business acumen in firm positions and how to market this experience to hiring companies. In addition, we will talk about the importance of choosing an industry and how to gain expertise in order to forge connections with potential employers and gain a deeper understanding of the industry as a whole. Making connections is not only a good way to meet people who can help you search for a new position, but it is also a great way to learn more about the ins and outs of business law and learn about the kinds of challenges you may face as in-house counsel. Participants will leave this workshop with a better idea of the path to in-house counsel and the crucial resources needed to proceed, as well as the confidence to go out and pursue the job of their dreams.
