Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today, we're excited to have ex-recruiter Sadie Jones with us to answer the most common questions we've been getting about resumes and cover letters.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Why you should almost always stick to a one-page resume
  • How and why it’s important to insert some personality into your resume
  • What work experiences to include and which ones you can leave off your resume
  • How to get help improving your resume 
  • What goes in a cover letter, and why you really DO have to write one
  • Where and how to address resume gaps, bad grades, and other common hiccups
