Identifying the passions and motives that drive you is the key to building a meaningful career. People tend to be motivated by what they like not by what makes sense.

They use other peopleˇ¦s definition of success to fuel their efforts, which leads to burnout or unhappiness. But, by tapping into your passions and motives you can energize your career development.

Because people tend to be motivated by what they like it is important to recognize your "evil secrets"--those things that you might be embarrassed to say out loud because they seem trivial, but which you know in your heart you need to be happy. More


Donˇ¦t miss the final event in the 2009-2010 YLC First Thursdays Series
Join us for a night of food, networking, shaking and stirring at our Mixology Class. The evening will begin with a networking reception, then attendees will create (and enjoy) drinks of their own, using a wide array of ingredients. Leave with new professional contacts and enough mixology talent to impress your friends and family. Space is limited.

And for law students...
We hope to see you at the June 17th Summer Associates Reception where you can mingle with other summer associates and attorneys, enjoy drinks and hors d'oeuvres, and have the chance to win great door prizes.
