About this service:
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.
A well-crafted resume will highlight your key employment and extra-curricular experiences; use compelling activity descriptions to demonstrate the qualities firms are looking for; and provide potential interviewers with engaging topics to discuss on interview day.
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.

Can you write my initial resume for me?
It is important that your resume be originally written by you – it is all about you after all! That is why this service is designed to review/edit your first draft – not help you initially draft it. However, if you’re having trouble getting started, try our Brainstorming Session.
