Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today, we're excited to have former BigLaw recruiter Sadie Jones back with us to talk about difficulties you might be wondering how to handle on your resume and cover letter.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Being prepared to explain gaps on your resume
  • Presenting non-related educational background or work experience as a positive
  • Drawing the interviewer's attention to your strengths
  • Should you try explaining any issues in your cover letter?
  • Is it ever okay to lie (or shade the truth) on your resume?
  • How do you know when you're oversharing unnecessarily?
