Resume Job Description Question

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Jun 17, 2011 1:10 pm

Hi all,

I'm a noob with resumes so I welcome all insults :). I work for a small firm criminal/civil/family law firm in Texas...the basic gist of the work that I do involves but is not limited to observing court hearings, trials, depositions, legal research and writing, drafting motions/complaints/etc., client interviewing, provide feedback and suggestions on how to move forward with certain cases, and the occasional clerical stuff. Any suggestions on how I can fit this in my resume a little more eloquently?
