Elements to emphasize in Attorney resumes

by fred 17. March 2009
While attorney resumes are similar to standard resumes, they differ when it comes to content, mostly as they emphasize different elements. While, obviously, related experience and education are still important, an attorney resume should mention your communication skills, your ability to handle difficult situations, your capacity to work overtime to meet deadlines, your attention to details, etc. In addition, you should avoid some common lawyer resume mistakes such as giving too many details, using obscure jargon and anything that turns your resume into a boring document, rather than a proactive marketing tool. And if you're not sure you can write a great resume or just don't have the time, do not hesitate to let a professional resume writer prepare it for you; it is a small investment that should guarantee you interviews.
