Thinking of jumping aboard as the first, the one, the only general counsel or chief legal officer with a growing company? Well, get “comfortable with being uncomfortable.”

That’s advice from Melissa Reiter, a seasoned in-house lawyer who recently became the director of legal at Jobber, a Canadian-based technology company that provides business management software for small home service businesses. She says even if you’ve been in-house at another company, it’s important to be open, talk to people, and realize that you are not going to know everything from the outset.
