I am a senior lawyer working in a mid-tier law firm. I’m interested in making the switch from private practice to an in-house legal role and would love some advice on what recruiters look for when short-listing applicants. Can you help?
There are a few things to consider when applying for an in-house role as a lawyer in private practice. Is your experience in an area that translates well to in-house? Does your branding documentation (CV, cover letter, LinkedIn profile) accurately reflect your experience? What industry does your experience best suit?
To give you some pointers, I have spoken to two SmartWomen Connect members who are experts on the topic. Here’s what they had to say.
