My friend Tim* recently graduated from law school and is looking for his first full-time opportunity this fall. His grades and experience have yet to yield him a job, so I’ve connected with a few business lawyers, many of whom have graciously said, “Sure, I’ll talk to him.” So far, he’s learned a lot from some experienced deal lawyers and litigators, and hopefully one of them can connect Tim with another friend or colleague who needs a junior lawyer on her team.
Can you help Tim or another junior lawyer like him? Who are you helping in your network? How rewarding do you find these professional courtesies?
PS – Tim isn’t his real name.
