1) Which Discipline?
Sounds a very obvious place to start but this will set the platform for how the rest of your legal career will develop. It is a scary thought but this decision will have a massive impact. Some lawyers are absolutely fixed on one area of law whereas others like to keep their options open and have 2/3 areas in mind. There is not anything wrong with the latter but consider how this might dilute your chance of success if you make applications to a number of different areas.
I have just read a post on LinkedIn where a candidate received a gift from a recruiter; the recruiter was thanking the candidate for the effort he had put into the recruitment process, and that candidate had NOT been appointed to the role! That made me think, since, as a recruiter, I’ve been grateful to receive thank you notes and gifts from candidates, saying how much they appreciated the way I have dealt with them during their recruitment process. I have thanked candidates many times for the effort and time they have spent on applying for a role, but was that enough?
