Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today, we're talking to ex-BigLaw recruiter Sadie Jones about job hunting practices that are typically not great ideas and aren't going to help you secure a job.

In this episode we discuss:

  • What is the perfect length for a resume?
  • How to cut down your writing sample for the purposes of job searching
  • Should you include an addendum with your application documents to explain a bad grade?
  • Deciding which of your previous jobs to include on your resume
  • Are thank-you notes a good or bad idea?
  • Is it acceptable to reach out to potential employers via cold calls or emails?
