Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today, we're talking with ex-BigLaw recruiter Sadie Jones about how to find a job if you struck out at OCI, or never tried it to begin with.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The job search framework from The Girl's Guide to Law School series by Katie Slater
  • Developing a big-picture view about your skills and strengths
  • Creating a list of all your contacts and keeping track of your communication with them
  • Trying a tiered approach, starting with your ideal jobs
  • Listing out the steps you need to take in the job search process and keeping track of your progress
  • Tips for mental and emotional well-being while handling an extensive search
  • Getting outside help, from coaches, mentors, family, or friends if you've hit a dead end
