Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today, ex-BigLaw recruiter, Sadie Jones, joins us to talk about how to frame your job search story. You may be thinking that you don’t have a story, but we all have a story! So we're exploring how to make sure your story makes sense.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • What do we mean by your “job search story”?
  • Tips on how to make sure your materials are telling your potential employer the story you want to tell – one that’s relevant AND truthful
  • Cover letters – and why they’re a golden opportunity to craft your story that you should never pass up
  • How to deal with non-linear career paths
  • Dos: get a LinkedIn profile, get feedback on your resume, proofread
  • Don’ts: put a language you’re not truly fluent in, be defensive when getting feedback, make mistakes or typos in your materials
