Expand your job search with creativity & flexibility
A job search in an unpredictable market requires that candidates be creative and flexible. If, for example, you are fixed and focused on a career in Joint Ventures in Transportation Infrastructure in Southern Italy, now would be a good time to:
1. Add practice areas to the mix;
2. Add geographic areas to the mix;
3. Keeping the goal fixed in your mind, talk to us so that you can develop a list of jobs that could LEAD YOU to the goal; and
4. Identify people who have the job you want or have a job that could lead you to the job you want, and write or talk to them.
What might you write or say? I am a second year law student at the University of Minnesota Law School. I have been interested in transportation –- specifically trains – since I was a small child. I have studied transportation engineering and policy as an undergraduate, and I am focusing on administrative and international law courses while in Law School. I speak Italian fluently, have traveled to Italy often, and after admiring the Italian rail system for years, I hope to return to Italy and work for the administrative offices of the railroad. Given my US undergraduate training and legal education, what do I need to do to come to work for you?
Identify yourself, giving the person enough information about you for him or her to know why you are writing and what you bring to the table, and the ASK FOR WHAT YOU WANT.
