BUILD JOB-GETTING SKILLS.

Enhance Your Job Search with Marketable Skills Employers Need.

Position Yourself as

the Candidate with Skills.

Why is it so difficult to get a job after law school? The answer reflects supply and demand. Put simply, there are significantly more law graduates than law firm opportunities. Every year law schools graduate thousands and thousands and thousands of job candidates. The cream of the crop finds jobs, like members of the law review and people at the top of their class, but what about the rest of the class?

You must understand that law firms hire associates to increase firm profitability. Law is a business. Smaller law firms, in particular, cannot afford the reduced billable hours needed to train inexperienced lawyers. The expense of training a new lawyer could cost the firm more money than profit generated by the inexperienced lawyer.

The key to a successful job search is to position yourself as the candidate with specific marketable skills. Thru this website, you can obtain a certificate from a national association to demonstrate your skills to prospective law firms.

Who Will Get the Next Job Offer?
Why Not You?

Job success requires hard work.  You have to take affirmative steps if you’re not on law review or at the top of your class. To succeed, you have to work closely with your law school’s career counselor on enhancing your resume. The reputation of your law school, lack of law review experience, and your class rank/grades are fixed and cannot be changed. But you can take action to enhance your resume and increase your job prospects.

Develop specific skills. Employers seek candidates who can “hit the ground running” and increase law firm profitability with the minimum of lost billable hours needed  for training. You can gain those specific skills by taking and passing the 121 courses offered at LawSchoolCareerAdvisor.com. You also learn specific, concrete, real-world skills thru the website’s 136 instructional videos and line-by-line analysis of official government forms. The website can make you ready to practice law proficiently on the first day of your new job.

Display identifiable skills. What better way to demonstrate your marketable skills to prospective employers than earning a certificate from a national organization? LawSchoolCareerAdvisor.com works with both the National Bankruptcy Academy and the National Offer in Compromise Academy to offer proprietary certificates in bankruptcy and tax law. Thru this website, the National Bankruptcy Academy offers its 250-question online exam that requires 80% correct answers to earn the “Bankruptcy Scholar” certificate. Similarly, the National Offer in Compromise Academy offers its 650-question online exam to earn the “OIC Scholar” certificate. These certificates must be added to your resume to announce your proven competency and your ability to “hit the ground running” and increase firm profitability.

Who do you think the law firm would choose between (a) an unskilled candidate, or (b) you with your developed and identifiable skill set? The answer is easy – YOU GET THE JOB OFFER!
