'Embrace feedback,' Office of Professional Development advises new attorneys
Although no one likes to be criticized, embracing and even soliciting feedback is essential for new attorneys.
In a recent article on GoodCall.com, Assistant Dean for Professional Development Laurel Hajek advises new attorneys to push themselves to improve.
"The best way to do this is to get out of your comfort zone and ask others to give you honest feedback,” she said.
Among Hajek's other advice for attorneys just starting out in their careers:
- Continue to network and build relationships within your organization.
- Be engaged in your workplace -- don't just 'show up' every day.
- Seek out mentors inside and outside your organization.
