X is for that “X-Factor” in Your Next Interview

When preparing a client for an interview, I’m always looking for that X-factor… the thing that will set them apart from the crowd. This can show up in many ways.

A few of my clients have recently turned down job offers. “Why would they do that?” you may be thinking… Simply put: because the offers weren’t a good match!

U is for Being “Unfazed” by the Post-Hireback Job-Search

Every year articling and Law Practice Program (LPP) students go into panic mode during hireback season. The transition from being a student to the practice of law can be overwhelming, particularly for those not hired back.

T is for "Time-Served": How Long To Commit Before Leaving a Job

I chose Paulette's services out of two options for career coaching offered to me after I wasn't hired back, and I'm so glad I made the right choice! She has a unique approach to coaching and offers wonderful online materials, which were really helpful in preparing my applications and getting ready for interviews. Furthermore, since they were online, I could go back and review them at any time I wanted. These materials were supplemented by my one-on-one sessions with Paulette, where she helped me gain a better understanding of both myself and what I wanted out of my legal career in the short- and long-term. I ended up getting my first job as a lawyer one month after my call to the bar. Paulette really knows how to work with young lawyers and I would highly recommend her!end-quote
