Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! In today's episode, we chat with our career expert Sadie Jones about setting realistic goals for your career development, as well as how to map out a longer term path to where you'd want to be in five years or more.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The most important things all employers are looking for in an entry-level hire
  • Shaping your 2L year to improve your chances of getting hired
  • How do most people get entry-level BigLaw jobs?
  • If BigLaw isn't realistic for now, what can you do to get it later?
  • What is important if you want to work in public interest or government?
  • How realistic is it to go in-house right out of law school?
  • Some ideas for mapping out a longer term plan
