Call For Resumes – Attorneys This Is Your Marketing Closeup!

Your cruise director received this information today and it looks like an awesome opportunity especially for associates who have not yet lined up work:

The ABA Journal is putting together a January issue that looks at the Wall Street crisis, and the magazine will include a section that runs the resumes of out-of-work lawyers, whose unemployment is directly related to recent events. The focus of the piece will be that there are some very talented attorneys looking for work, and it’s through no fault of their own that they were laid off. We have a circulation of approximately 400,000, so participants’ resumes would get many views. We also plan to include a testimonial from a reference for each CV. Do you know of some lawyers who might be interested, or would you consider making a plea on your blog? Our deadline is coming up quickly, so it would be great to hear from you soon.

Please contact either

Stephanie Francis Ward, Legal Affairs Writer, ABA Journal at +1 (312) 988-5910 or via email at WardS@staff.abanet.org

or

Mark Hansen, ABA Journal, +1 (312) 988-5995 or via email at markhansen@staff.abanet.org

Heller Highwater is not:

- a place to practice viscious and vindictive "whisper down the lane" rumour-mongering;

- a place to bad mouth co-workers;

- a place for diatribes against specific people or specific incidents;

- a place to heap pity on poor Heller Ehrman staff by outsiders;

- a place that discriminates or sets margins noting who is outside and who is inside - we even welcome supportive Heller Ehrman attorneys!;

- meant to further the demise of Heller Ehrman, LLP.

Heller Highwater is:

- a place for support, a place of empowerment, a place of passion;

- a place to learn about job leads, resume preparation, skill building, training, new opportunities, and how to succeed in a new workplace;

- a place to keep up on the latest news as to how Heller Ehrman management intends to treat its support staff as it winds down its operations - will it be every woman for herself? or will it be "let me hold the door for you and is there anything else I can do for you"?

- a place of refuge.
