Lawyer Resume Sample

Lawyer Resume Sample for a Lobbyist & Government Affairs Professional

Not every licensed lawyer goes into traditional law practice. Many pursue very different careers that draw on their legal background. This lawyer resume sample was written for a job seeker with a Juris Doctor degree who pursued a career as a lobbyist, policy advisor, and government affairs in relations

Notice that as with all the resumes we write at Distinctive Career Services, this lawyer resume sample is similar in that it follows many of the same basic principles.  The headline and subheading of the resume immediately convey the focus of this resume: a government relations position, and the subheading lets you know exactly how this candidate is differentiated: he has had extensive, proven success as a lobbyist working across partisan lines and ideological divides.

The body of the resume tells the “story” of each position, engaging the reader through a compelling description of the challenges faced, actions taken, and results produced. While we have used very traditional design elements in this lawyer resume sample, it has been updated by the very selective use of color and some simple but sophisticated elements, such as strategic bolding, bullets, ruling lines, and a page border.

Michelle was very friendly and extremely professional. After she completed my resume I sent out only two resumes and actually received both interviews! I accepted one of these positions at an annual salary $12,000 higher than I was receiving previously...

Lisa produced a great product that is better than what I expected. I found that going through the worksheet was helpful in bringing new things to mind - things that weren't originally on the resume I produced - that translated to my final resume. I found your method very effective. By setting parameters for review & deadlines eliminated the normal mundane 'back-and-forth' that is all too often present in projects nowadays. I did recommend DCS to two of my colleagues & also to my sister.

I am more than pleased with my new resume! It is creative, eye-catching and captures my strengths and experiences. I am also impressed with your ability to be flexible with various ways to communicate with me throughout the process. Part of my reservation with updating my resume previously was that it would be difficult and time consuming. It wasn't and the end result was wonderful!
