the interviews went great

“Hi Shauna—the interviews went great. I felt like I have been connected to the [corporate legal] team that I met with there and on the phone for years.  I believed we spoke the same languages [law]-wise, strategy-wise, business-wise, and background-wise. In the first interview, we were laughing 5 minutes into the conversation about similarities in our legal philosophies, strategies, and approaches with technologists, general lawyers, and government offices around the world… I will keep you up to date, and thank you again for Thursday's interview prep.”

I’m really thinking about my path and where I want to go.

“I found the process and the new résumé so stimulating. It really jolted me into realizing that I’m going to be responsible to a job interviewer for everything in my résumé. I need to be able to talk about it. I understand more how to tell my story, the common threads, and what themes I want to convey because I’m not just trying to get the next job. I’m really thinking about my path and where I want to go. I really enjoyed the process.”

I just didn’t even know where to start.

“I’ve spent more time than I care to admit putting together what is still a pretty awful résumé. I just didn’t even know where to start. I’ve been on the hiring-side myself, and I completely agree with you about the needed changes.”

You are my Marie Kondo
