Applying for a new job seems straightforward. Submit your cover letter and resume, and wait for the interviews to roll in. As anybody who has been through it can attest, however, it is not typically that easy. There are a lot of moving parts in the hiring process, only some of which the candidate can control. A key tool in the job search—one whose significance is often overlooked—is the writing sample. We often have candidates caught off-guard when a potential employer asks for a writing sample, so I recommend that any attorney considering looking for a new job also consider whether she or he has a stellar writing sample to bolster any job applications.
