What are the signs that it’s time to leave your job? To leave your profession? Once you’ve made the decision to move on, how do you start the process? Kristina Anderson has been a professional search consultant for over seven years, having made the decision to leave the practice of law. Based on her own experience and her work with clients, she’ll offer specific ideas you can use to achieve your career goals in any profession, whether you are a recent college or professional school graduate or a work force veteran.

Kristina will suggest resources to get you started and will guide you through ways to approach people who can help you get the position you want. If time allows, she’ll address resume writing tips that can heighten your chances of securing that door-opening interview as well as how to use the interview to your best advantage.

Our speaker is the Senior Search Consultant with Kimball Professional Management, LLC, which offers consulting and search services to law firms and lawyers. She joined Kimball recently from a large Chicago legal search firm. This followed a major career switch from a Chicago boutique law firm where she had served as the hiring partner and chair of the white-collar criminal defense practice group. With an undergraduate degree from Bryn Mawr College, Class of 1984, and a law degree from Northwestern (1987), Kristina began her career as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Criminal Division of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Chicago.

Please join us for a very practical session. Bring your friends and most importantly bring your questions.
