Want insight from nonprofit and government employers about what they look for in cover letters, resumes, and interviews? We're thrilled to partner with our friends at Equal Justice Works to present two webinars offering tips and best practices on the public-interest summer job hunt.
Attorneys with years of application review experience will highlight do's and don'ts; explain how and why public interest application materials may substantively differ from law firm materials; and explore the dynamics of personal interactions in interviews and networking situations. While the webinars will focus on the summer public interest job search, the information is applicable to postgraduate positions.
