Anderson & Associates, P.C. Attorneys Help Host Job Search Workshop

The DuPage County Bar Association along with attorneys of Anderson & Associates, P.C. host successful New Lawyer Job Search Workshop at the Hyatt in Lisle, IL.

The DuPage County Bar Association in conjunction with several attorneys from family law firm Anderson and Associates, P.C. successfully hosted the second annual New Lawyer Job Search Workshop on Thursday, November 14 at the Hyatt hotel in Lisle, IL. The event drew in over 30 participants from all over the Chicago area including law students, paralegals and seasoned DuPage attorneys.

Participants brought with many unique questions and perspectives, which contributed to the overall success of the workshop. DCBA’s New Lawyer Committee organized the Job Search Workshop.

The workshop was broken down into various segments. The first portion of the afternoon focused on job search and interview skills. In order to lighten the mood of a serious workshop, participants were then able to enjoy a legal version of “What Not to Wear”. Attorney Chris Maurer and law clerk Daniel Guido presented the legal fashion show and demonstrated proper courtroom attire by exaggerating a few common mistakes attorneys make when dressing for court.

Capping off the event was a resume round table exercise in which four to six participants were each paired with experienced attorneys including Dennise McCann, who reviewed the participant’s resumes for mistakes and errors. Participants were then informed about common resume mistakes and offered tips about how to make sure an applicant’s resume survives the first review by a potential employer. Tips included proofreading, keeping the resume to one page, appropriate spacing, and maximizing your space by listing the most applicable information first. Many participants were eager to utilize this information, as they will begin to apply for jobs within the next couple of months.
