Career Evaluation

Call or email Kathy Morris to inquire about confidential, individual counseling conducted in-person or at a distance to assist you in changing jobs, changing careers, or performing more effectively in your current role.

The following questions are designed to help attorneys evaluate their career objectives:

LOOKING BACK:

  • What jobs do (did) your parents and siblings hold, and how do (did) their expectations affect you?
  • Why did you choose to attend law school, and how was that decision similar to or different from the other choices you have made, before or since?
  • What hobbies or activities outside the workplace have you engaged in and enjoyed, from childhood forward, and what about them do you enjoy?
  • Have you held any jobs in the past that you enjoyed more than your current job, and if so, why?


CURRENTLY:

  • What is your current (or most recent) job, and what about it do (did) you like and dislike?
  • Who are two people you admire, and what are their best qualities?
  • Is there anyone you know or know of whose job you would prefer to have, and why?
  • What skills do you possess that you are not currently using, and what additional skills would you most like to be developing?


LOOKING AHEAD:

  • If you could find a job within the legal profession that you enjoyed and were satisfied with, would you want to remain a lawyer, or are you committed to a career change?
  • Do you have a sense of what you want to do next, or do you need help to learn what kinds of options are available?
  • How much money do you want to make, and how much do you need to make in your next job?
  • Do you have a resume and cover letter that present you with strength, or do you need input about how to advocate regarding the facts of your career?
