How to Overcome Lawyer Job Search Challenges
"No" experience? Interviews feel like hazing or like an interrogation? Not sure how your experience translates into the jobs you're applying for? When we focus on what we lack, it keeps our brain from seeing and creating opportunity. When we ask ourselves better questions, we ultimately get better results.Today I answer a question from a listener you might all be able to relate to. I share some powerful questions you can ask yourself too if you're in the job market, dealing with people of a different background or generation who don't seem to appreciate you, or solo and wondering where all the clients are.Got a question? I'd love to answer it on the podcast. Please contact me through my website at saraellen.net!
