Often the simplest ideas can be the catalysts for new approaches to a search.

· Seeking advice. A career counselor or professional recruiter can assess an attorney's

resume and cover letter and offer an overview of the employment market in their area.
Recruiters can recommend steps to take for a better targeted search. They also can help
identify unadvertised job leads.

discouraging. So it's worth taking a second look at primary goals. Sometimes attorneys
find they have inadvertently been setting themselves up for failure. For instance, if they
feel they have limited their prospects to companies in a certain geographic area, they
may need to expand their searches. Even with today's gas prices, would driving an extra
30 minutes each way be worth it for the right opportunity? Would a position with a lower
base salary that is closer to home, yet with the room for advancement be better overall?
Lawyers should decide on their absolute must-haves and be prepared to compromise on
those aspects of the job that are like-to-haves, particularly in a tightening job market.

· Giving it a rest. When job seekers feel they've run into another dead end, or they just

Finding a new position requires persistence, and, at times, an ability to overcome
rejection. To endure a long search, attorneys must believe that there are jobs out there
with their names on them. By diligently following leads, tapping professional networks and
using all available resources, they can be sure they're still on the right track. 500 North Michigan Avenue, Suite 300
