Building Your Network Takes More than Business Cards and Cocktail Receptions—It Requires a Strategy
By Diane Costigan

No matter what your career, in order to be successful you need to invite and encourage people to participate in it. You need people to give you work; to send you business; to recommend you for new jobs and other exciting opportunities; to give you feedback on your performance; even to let you blow off steam when needed. Your network consists of those who can help you move forward in your career and to enjoy it along the way. More...

Q: I have really enjoyed the time I have spent on recruiting the summer class for my firm. How can I best transition into a full time management/recruiting role at my firm?

A: First of all it is worth noting that if the firm asked you to actively participate in the summer recruiting they must also notice something about your natural skill set for this type of position. In best case scenarios, good law firm recruiting involves being naturally likeable, socially comfortable meeting new and introducing new people, having sophisticated liaison skills and stealth troubleshooting abilities. It is not an easy job but for those who gravitate naturally to this position it can be a very fulfilling, social and meaningful way to add value to a firm.
