There are numerous advantages to working in a small firm. For example, associates in small firms often have direct contact with clients and are able to gain practical experience with increasing responsibility in a relatively short period of time. In addition, small firms offer the camaraderie of working closely with a small team and more opportunity for community development. To make yourself marketable for a small firm, obtain as much practical experience as possible and network through bar associations and by conducting informational meetings with local law firms. For assistance in developing your individual action plan in that regard, schedule an appointment with a Career Services Counselor by logging into Symplicity or contacting our office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
