Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! In today's episode, we are welcoming back ex-BigLaw recruiter Sadie Jones to discuss how much responsibility you should take for your future career -- starting as a law student -- and what resources are available to help.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Why you need to take ownership of your career goals as a law student
  • Resources to help if you're not sure yet what you want
  • Looking outside of the standard channels for work opportunities
  • How does your mindset factor into your job search?
  • The importance of asking for help rather than trying to do everything yourself
  • Evaluating each job for clues about what job is right for you long term
  • Why BigLaw didn't work for Alison's personality
