WPM on Resume

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Aug 26, 2018 4:21 am

Is it ever appropriate to put your WPM on your resume? More specifically, I have been told I should put my (very impressive) WPM on my resume, presumably because I'm likely to be a better attorney than someone who types slower. Does this rule only apply to the v5, or do some of the lower tiered (v15-20) shitlaw firms also hire based on WPM? Thanks!

This is mostly offensive because it’s simply not funny. Do better.

OP here. So if my WPM is at or above 135, you recommend putting it on my resume? But not if my WPM is lower than 135?

It wasn’t funny the first time, not sure why you’re trying to keep the joke going.
