I’m a jr litigation associate with many years of tech work pre law school. A former coworker has offered to submit my resume for a legal role at her company (also tech) basically doing contract and privacy work as well as other tasks relevant to my former work life. My current resume is full of litigation experience from law school, since my resume is written for applying to lit positions. On the one hand, it bolsters my legal experience. On the other, it’s not relevant to this role. Do I cut?

Don’t hide or change your experience. But write a short letter explaining why litigation helps you see around corners. A mentor who had been head of a large insurance company’s in-house department once told me litigation is where you learn the law. You deal with all the conceivable ways people come up with to make a claim. Understanding things from that perspective helps you anticipate weaknesses a non-litigator might not appreciate.

This is awesome, thank you for taking the time.

Do these 2 things I used to do to get over it:

2. Do more demos - the more calls and presentations you do the more comfortable you’ll get. My advice is to try to get on a lot of presentations, even with leads that aren’t so good.
