The NYSBA Committee on Lawyers in Transition is pleased to announce that it will be sponsoring free LIVE webcasts for all attorneys in need of career assistance this spring.
If you are currently unemployed, looking to make a career change, leave your current job or transition back to the workforce after time away from the profession, the Committee on Lawyers in Transition is here to help. The Committee is sponsoring a series of programs designed to help attorneys in transition. The programs will offer advice and resources to increase the odds of finding rewarding work. Topics include interviewing tips, maintaining a positive attitude, networking techniques, resumes and cover letters, and transitioning your career in general.
Session One of the series will take place on Wednesday, April 22, 2009 from noon - 2:00 p.m. Materials will be forwarded to all registrants, along with the web access code and link to view the program. Participants will be able to ask questions of the presenters.
The programs are free to all attorneys, but pre-registration is required. Register online today.
Each program will be webcast live from the office of the committee chair, Lauren J. Wachtler, at the location listed below.
