What's included?These services have been specially curated by our lawyer-advisors to help you find an articling position:

+ included in Gold

If you become a Gold member, your lawyer-advisor will conduct a 30 minute Job Search Strategy to provide advice on how to navigate the recruitment process, network more effectively, or access the hidden job market to help you secure a summer student or articling position.

Securing an in-firm interview is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to successfully navigating the recruitment process. Applicants will have to make a number of strategic decisions throughout interview week and making the right connections can be the key to securing a summer or articling position.

If you become a Gold member, your lawyer-advisor will advise you on how to properly play your cards to ensure you remain at the top of a potential employer’s list, and provide you with tips to make the most of networking events and get noticed by employers.

Many applicants make the mistake of restricting their job search to those firms participating in the formal summer student and articling student recruitment processes. By doing so, they are missing out on potential articling positions with boutique firms, in-house legal departments, and other alternative legal employers. If you become a Gold member, your lawyer-advisor can help you access this hidden job market by advising you on where to look for opportunities, as well as how and when to reach out.

Given the number of applications received, firms/employers will often use cover letters as a means of eliminating applications. It is therefore vital that your cover letter be concise, persuasive, and free of grammatical errors to give you the best chance of success.

Our Cover Letter Review will help you make a great first impression. Your lawyer-advisor will review your cover letter and provide detailed feedback on grammar and spelling, sentence and essay structure, idea organization, and ways to reduce word count. Your lawyer-advisor will also provide recommendations on how to highlight your experiences and skills, and tailor your cover letter to individual employers.

Your resume is your opportunity to showcase your skills and experience. Our Resume Review will help you highlight the qualities employers are looking for and secure an interview.

Your resume is the primary component of your summer student or articling application. Law firms will use your resume to determine whether you have the requisite skills and experience for the position, and to identify potential concerns with your application, such as a perceived lack of commitment, or a significant gap in your employment history. Your resume can therefore make or break your job application.

Our Resume Review will help you craft a resume which not only lists your accomplishments, but truly lets them shine – helping you secure an interview. Your lawyer-advisor will review your resume to ensure it highlights the skills and experiences employers are looking for by providing detailed feedback on grammar, spelling and sentence structure, and persuasiveness of activity descriptions. This review will also include advice on which activities to include/exclude, strategies to reduce word count and minimize potential red flags, and ways to incorporate/develop compelling interview topics.

Our Mock Interview will simulate a law firm style interview, giving you the practice and feedback you need to build confidence, and come prepared for the tough questions on interview day.

A successful interview is the final step of the recruitment process, and the key to securing a summer student or articling position. On-campus interviews are used by firms to screen candidates for fit, while in-firm interviews are used to rank you against other top candidates, gauge your interest in the firm, and ultimately decide whether or not to extend you a summer student or articling offer.

Our Mock Interview will help prepare you for any scenario, build your confidence, and ultimately increase you chance of securing a position with your preferred employer. Your lawyer-advisor will tailor the interview method and style to help you improve your interview skills where you need it most. Following your mock interview, your lawyer-advisor will provide feedback to help you improve your responses, tone, speech pattern, and body language.
