Professional Development Series
The Professional Development Series is a weekly podcast series devoted to our newly sworn in attorneys and young lawyers. The PDS will present programs bringing basic skills training, introducing the business of the law, educating on mental health issues, and showcasing long term career options. Programs will come from a variety of sources locally and from around the country. If you are interested in contributing content, contact Chris Fortier at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Week 10: Careers in Federal Government
You hear all sorts of stories about federal government workers. Do you really know what a day in the life of a federal practitioner contains? You might be surprised. This one hour program covers a federal lawyer's orientation, work life, challenges, and rewards. Join our panel of four federal civil servants who will discuss the most relevant issues when working for the federal government. Learn from their paths to employment in the federal government. This program is from the American Bar Association Young Lawyers Division's Career Development Initiative from April 2012.
