Welcome to the Law School Toolbox Podcast. Today, we're talking with ex-BigLaw recruiter guest, Sadie Jones, about how to get people to help you with your job search and how to keep them happy when they do help. As the saying goes, “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know,” so don’t be afraid to connect with your network for help. We’ll talk about the different people you can reach out to, and how to approach them based on the strength of your relationship.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Different people who might be willing and able to help with your job search
  • The work you need to do before making any contact
  • How to be specific and direct in asking for help
  • What can you realistically expect from someone who offers to help?
  • The value of following up and staying in contact
  • How to approach someone you don’t know personally for help
