If you are a recent or soon-to-be law school graduate this information is for you. As practicing lawyers who attended law school from 2007 to 2010, we know all about graduating during tough economic times because we graduated in the midst of the Great Recession. Therefore, we know a thing or two about how to navigate a tough job market and taking the bar exam all at the same time.

Here are five tips for recent (or soon-to-be) law school graduates to set yourself up for success after graduation, especially if you have not landed a full-time position yet.

Tip #1 - While you are looking for a full-time position, consider other temporary options to help you build experience.

Since you are just starting out you do not have a lot of practical experience yet. Consider taking a part-time or temporary role to help you gain experience and build your resume while you continue to pursue full-time employment.

Tip #2 - Remember that your career is not defined by your GPA.

If you are someone that is concerned about whether their GPA is competitive enough - STOP! Instead of worrying about what is behind you and cannot be changed, look forward. Highlight skills and experience on your resume that is not reflected in your transcript. Show your talents when given the opportunity.

Tip #3 - Networking!

You should be consistently reaching out and checking in with your network. Tell them what you are looking for and the types of connections you are looking to make with others. Networking is the TOP way professionals land coveted positions.

Tip #4 - Apply for a position even if it is not advertised.

Send out your resume and cover letter to local firms or companies that interest you. Smaller firm and business, in particular, tend to be more frugal with both time and money - advertising for job openings may not be their priority. Get yourself out there in your local market and start making those connections.

Tip #5 - Celebrate!

Wherever you are in your professional journey, make sure that you are celebrating your law school graduation. This is an amazing accomplishment and you worked hard to achieve it. Don’t let the bar exam or an uncertain job market deter you from celebrating this milestone and honoring yourself.

Have a great day!
