CSG founder Bruce Blackwell has been asked to speak before the Connecticut Bar Association on September 22. His topic will be address the issues faced by attorneys who have left the practice for a prolonged period of time — typically either for health, business or child-rearing purposes — and who now seek to return to the legal market place. Blackwell has lectured on this topic for the New Directions program at Pace Law School, and at a panel discussion before the Association of the Bar of the City of New York. His lecture will deal with resume issues, modern job search techniques, and how to deal with questions relating to an extended absence from the practice of law. For reservations, contact the Connecticut Bar Association.

Our Clients Say…

I felt absolutely helpless because I submitted my resume to so many potential employers and either didn’t get a bite or was ultimately rejected.  I was also certain that I wanted to get out of law but wasn’t sure how to go about doing so, or even whether that was the right career decision for me. I knew even before coming to Career Strategies  that I was a valuable asset  to a company, but I now have a greater recognition of exactly what I do that imparts such value.  I believe that I even feel more validated now in my personal life …  Just the resume-recrafting services alone are worth it …  I wish I could tell more lawyers who feel chained to their current job duties or profession that there is a resource available to help them.”                                           — Thank you, Pat! You just did!

Put our expertise to work, and we will help put you to work … in a job that makes you feel like what you are doing is worthwhile, fulfilling and intellectually challenging.   Give us a call or send us an email today to see if we can help you.
