What is LegalJobCoach.com?
Having personally been disillusioned by the traditional legal career advice ourselves, we want to tell the other side of the story.
We’re not here to help you get a training contract with an international or magic/silver circle firm focusing on corporate or commercial law. Instead, we’ll give you an insight into what it’s like to work at high street practices, specialist boutiques, and both regional and national firms, as well as the steps you need to take to secure a rewarding role with these firms.
Through LegalJobCoach.com, we’ll provide you with information and advice on topics including:
- – Developing and communicating your personal brand
- – CVs
- – Interviews
- – Securing a training contract
- – Alternative routes to qualification, e.g. CILEX and legal apprenticeships
- – Career progression
- – Wellbeing and mental health
How can we help you?
Through the LegalJobCoach.com online career hub, you’ll have access to webinars, blogs, guest articles and more, to equip you with the information you need to forge a successful legal career.
We’ll give you the lowdown on all things legal recruitment and bring non-commercial practice areas into sharp focus.
Taking your personality, interests and communication style into account, we’ll help you work out which practice areas you’re best suited to and give you tips and guidance on how to secure your first legal role.
