Blogs can be a useful source of information for law students who are job hunting. Here are a few that offer valuable information:
- Ms. JD: Although Ms. JD seeks to support women law students and attorneys, there are lots of job-hunting tips that apply to both genders, like how to polish your resume and advice from recruiters for job-seekers. Ms. JD also regularly posts on leadership -- something that's emphasized heavily in business school curricula, but doesn't get much attention in law school.
- The Careerist: Tips on interviewing, OCI, and even table manners.
- Above the Law: Yes, the content can be snarky and gossipy, but Above the Law has a lot of useful information for job hunters on the state of the legal job market. In particular, Mark Herrmann, a former law firm partner who is now in-house, always has valuable tips on resumes, client management and how to market yourself.
