Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today, we're talking with ex-BigLaw recruiter, Sadie Jones, about how to make people hate you at work, so that, basically, you can avoid doing these things.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Things to avoid, such as being late on your first day of work!
  • How to make a good impression at social events (and how to make a bad one)
  • Why there is almost no excuse for not showing up or notifying a host that you can’t make an event
  • Why treating everyone with respect, always, is so important
  • Why you need to treat summer jobs as the start of your professional reputation
  • Why first drafts aren’t really drafts
  • That it’s your job to make your boss look good
  • Why you need to do your homework, and then ask good questions, to avoid surprises
  • How important communication is to success at work
  • What to do if you do mess up at work
