Not impossible if you want to do white-collar/investigations and you’re at a F500.

Well thankfully it is at a f500

It happens fairly often. Work closely with the legal team at your company and build some relationships there.

Additional Posts in Ask A Recruiter - Law

Would like to move into business development and marketing role at a law firm but not sure what my resume should look like. Can anyone recommend someone that specialises in resumes?

I am looking for a new job at the end of a long career. I have excellent experience in IP and Supply Chain Management. I've been fortunate to be in a high-paying position in the Los Angeles area and I rarely see comparable positions posted. The comparable positions at my company are filled by one of the big executive search firms. Any recommendations for finding the rare executive-level legal positions or for landing on the radar of the big executive search firms would be much appreciated!

I have a call on Monday for an in house job where I’d be drafting, reviewing, and negotiating contracts in areas that I’m not familiar with.

What questions should I be prepared for regarding transferability of my skills? Is there anything else I should be aware of?
