Leverage Your Judicial Clerkship for a Successful Private Sector Career: Training the Incoming Clerk
As summer rolls around you are likely preparing to transition to private practice come the end of your term. You may be at various stages in your job search and hiring usually slows down in the next few months. In turn, court filings are usually lower from June through August with an uptick in September.
During this time try to accomplish a few things: time your exit with the new clerk’s start date, formulate a training program, and follow up with the new clerk. The goal is to provide the judge with a smooth transition from one clerk to the other and to leave your successor with the tools s/he needs to fly solo.
