I’d like to offer you a unique opportunity to participate in and help influence the experience of thousands of law school students. Your thoughts as an experienced recruiter, career coach, and/or seasoned attorney are very important to us, so much so that I’d like the opportunity to email you a set of composite resumes.
You will be asked to look at these one-page resumes and give us your thoughts on the individuals’ estimated starting salaries. For the purposes of this study, you can assume the job applicant is looking to optimize his or her income but is flexible about location and fairly realistic about sectors given the current economic situation.
These are resumes are composites of several law school students; they are not real people. Your reactions to the different resumes will allow us to gather information that can help future job seekers become more marketable.
In exchange for your help, we will gladly give you two "recommendations" (from yours truly and my colleague) on your LinkedIn.com profile.
Rest assured that your answers will be anonymous. Our goal is only to report the aggregate averages. We will not publish or share your information or answers unless you authorize us to do so.
So, please let me know if I can send you some composite resumes and if you can take a few minutes to review them and share your thoughts on their estimated starting salaries. Thank you for your time!
P.S. If you are not qualified to participate in the study but refer someone to us who is, we will give you a LinkedIn recommendation too!
