Resume Tips and Tricks

Learn how to highlight your skills as you edit your resume and establish your online presence while looking for a new legal job.

It’s no secret that the global economy has been thrown into chaos in the last three months. In fact, The International Monetary Fund recently called this the “worst economic downturn since the Great Depression.”

The legal industry has been deeply affected as well. According to Clio’s recent COVID-19 Impact Research Briefing, the legal industry in the US shed 64,000 jobs in April. But as global economies gradually reopen, you may be one of the thousands of legal professionals looking for a new legal job.

To help legal professionals like you get noticed and establish a better online presence during your job search, we’ve put together a webinar for you to watch anytime.

This 40-minute on-demand webinar is hosted by Andrew Deacon, Senior Manager of Talent Acquisition at Clio, and Eric Fox, Director of People Analytics at Hire an Esquire. They’ll go over the tips and tricks on how to get your resume—and yourself—noticed when job searching.

In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • Resume basics, like formatting, page length, and summarizing your skills
  • How to update your online presence on LinkedIn to make your profile attractive to recruiters
  • Best practices for navigating a competitive legal job market

Duration: 40 minutes
