Working as a practicing attorney can be stressful, but it depends on what kind of position you have. For example, some people enjoy litigation but with that can come stress of trial prep and actual trial work. There is a wide, wide range of career paths available, and it is something that you need to explore for yourself.

When it comes to interviewing- you want to highlight what interests you in the position and what you bring to that position. It seems obvious, but you would be surprised to see how many people just send in a form resume that fails to illustrate why the applicant would be a good fit for the position. I would also highlight that most attorneys clerk/summer during law school which allows you to get some practical experience prior to graduation. That gives you the opportunity to explore whether firm life/public service etc is a good fit for you.

Ashunda’s Answer

Stress in this profession is more common than you might think. We deal with others' problems and often neglect the self-care needed to ensure we stay in a good place with our own lives and health. After all, it’s a job focused on resolving human conflicts which can often be quite complex and controversial.

As far as getting ready for an interview, you should always be prepared to discuss any specific experiences or skills listed on your resume. Also, consider which are the most important skills and experiences you would bring to the role as well as questions you have about the organization and the position. Each of your answers should be concise, organized and meaningful. Also, be sure to research any employer you meet with, so you have an understanding of their strong practice areas, major clients, policies, and recent newsworthy cases.

Be sure to include writing samples with your resume.
