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.
