Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today, we're talking with Whittney Beard, an ex-lawyer and career coach at Orrick, about how to really own and direct your career, even as a young lawyer.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • What exactly a career coach does and why they are valuable
  • Common mistakes many young/inexperienced lawyers make
  • The truth about getting the assignments you want
  • Concrete steps you can take if you’re unhappy in your career or working with some difficult personalities
  • What to do when you think you’re ready to move on
