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.

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!

I just wanted to personally thank you for the incredible resume you prepared for me! Yesterday, I sent a resume to a company via email and I had a response waiting for me first thing this morning. When I first saw this in my inbox, I thought it was going to be a quick note indicating they received my resume, etc. This was not the case. The recruiter was pleased and wanted to set up a time for a phone interview and asked me to answer some basic questions. This is the first time I sent out my new resume and I received an immediate response. It takes alot for me to be satisfied and be able to respect individual's work. Needless to say, you have my utmost respect and I am extremely pleased! This was the best thing I could have ever done to enhance my career. Thank you once again!

B.L., California

I want to thank you with all the effort you have done! I have found already some companies which are like to have me and they want to employ me here in my favorite Country. I know, that the key was also the work you did, brushing up my career on paper and make it in a way I would never be able to. Again, thank you so much ! Receive my best Regards and I will stay in touch with you. Maybe some day I will need your help again if I would come to the US.
