For interviews, are skirted suits the way to go for women? I feel much more comfortable and pulled together in a pantsuit. I'm also quite tall -- does that mean I should go for flats over heels? It seems like every little thing counts.Post a Comment
After coming to the U.S., I obtained an LL.M., passed the New York and California bar exams, and ended up opening my own firm -- but I dream about practicing at a U.S. BigLaw firm. I'm considering going back to school for a J.D. Any advice?Post a Comment
Beware the overuse of passive verbs, which can lead to unwanted twists and turns in expression, according to Kenneth F. Oettle, co-chair of Sills Cummis Epstein & Gross' writing program. Oettle says people get into trouble by writing in the order in which thoughts occur. They don't think ahead, and they don't rethink the structure after they create it. Check out Oettle's "before" and "after" examples and see which version most closely resembles your own writing.
