Does it matter if you have a “summary” at the top of your resume? Do we need to clutter these things with more redundant text?

Depends. But for me no. There are only so many times I can read the words DYNAMIC LEADER before it loses its meaning. I rarely read it.

Third-year in BL and just had a second round of interviews for an in-house position. It was surprisingly similar to a law firm callback with no real curveballs. They mentioned that as in-house counsel, you have to answer questions that you don’t always know the answer to. Frickin, how does that work without you committing malpractice, especially if you’re still a “baby attorney”? By just using lots of qualifiers in your answer? What happens if you get it wrong (hopefully not instant termination)

If I hit all my goals (ie, prove myself) within that time frame, I'll get a promotion and salary adjustment.
QUESTIONS:
Should this be in writing in the offer letter?
How detailed should it be? I assume I won't know what goals to set till I start...
