Attorney Christine Svenson, who will be a speaker at our Wednesday event, took some time to answer a few of our questions.
What do you hope people get out of what you have to say?
That hard work and dedication really do pay off, but be prepared for it to take years! And never give up.
What is the no. 1 piece of advice you have for someone considering starting their own firm?
Be ready and willing to handle any case that walks in the door
What is the no. 1 piece of advice you have for someone going through a career transition?
Talk to as many people in your industry as possible…. and do it face to face, not by sending out e-mails or reading blogs.
Why is networking so important to lawyers facing job uncertainty?
Networking is important for EVERYBODY! Because in this day in age, unless you graduated from Harvard Law School or the like, you are going to need something intangible to set you apart from the rest of the pack. And that intangible is most likely knowing and being connected to a person of influence!
