About the Book
The 90 Minute Job Search Guide for Lawyers is a good, quick resource covering the basics of a legal job search for the busy attorney or law student—busy in his or her career as well as other aspects of his or her life. This book is for those who do not have the time or maybe just don’t have the desire to read 300 or more pages. Getting a new job is often another job in itself and can be time-consuming, taking the three free hours a day the legal job searcher may have in the day. If you have only three free hours in the day, wouldn’t you rather spend 90 minutes reading a job search guide instead of the entire three hours?

You will discover:

• Where to find jobs in the legal field
• What to do if you have been laid off
• What you should know before searching for a job
• How to network and how to conduct informational interviews
• How to draft, and examples of, a cover letter, a resume, references, a thank you letter, an acceptance letter, and a resignation letter
• Various aspects of the interview from what to wear to possible interview questions that you may be asked and possible interview questions that you could ask
• How to handle the salary question
• Information about the alternative career job search
• Information about temporary and contract work
• Helpful appendices that cover everything from Internet Web sites and newspapers that contain job openings, possible informational interview questions, possible interview questions, resources for an academic job search, to agencies that provide legal contract work and information about legal recruiters
