In today’s environment of corporate consolidations and firm mergers, lawyers may face changes in their employment status without warning. Lawyers in transition should use a variety of methods to find a new position, as it is impossible to know which one will result in successfully landing another opportunity.

Got outplacement? A lawyer may receive outplacement services as part of a separation package, usually in a corporate downsizing. Take advantage of these services, which may include resume advice, networking workshops, personality/career testing and administrative support. Choose an outplacement provider with specific legal industry experience, if possible. Alternatively, negotiate for the cash equivalent of outplacement and then hire a legal career coach to help with resume drafting and interview preparation.
