Pres­i­dent of the Law So­ci­ety of Ire­land, Michele O’Boyle, said, ‘So­lic­i­tors, like many oth­ers navigating the early years of a ca­reer path can some­time be un­sure of what di­rec­tion it should take, where their ca­reer path will ul­ti­mately lead them, and where they can find their ‘dream job.

‘ The Younger Mem­bers Com­mit­tee com­prises qual­i­fied so­lic­i­tors in the early stages of their ca­reer. They have iden­ti­fied key is­sues of rel­e­vance to their co­hort and created this se­ries to as­sist their col­leagues in the pro­fes­sion who may face sim­i­lar chal­lenges and de­ci­sions,’ she said.

The se­ries will cover the fol­low­ing top­ics: find­ing the hid­den job mar­ket; im­press­ing at in­ter­view; work­ing from home - how to stay well phys­i­cally and men­tally; suc­cess at com­pe­tency in­ter­views; find­ing your con­fi­dence; deal­ing suc­cess­fully with re­cruiters; psy­cho­log­i­cal un­cer­tainty – liv­ing with Covid-19; chang­ing ca­reer di­rec­tion; and personal brand­ing for young so­lic­i­tors.
