I am a third-year law student at Cardozo in New York and I wanted to inform you of my new job-search site, resumelaunchpad.com
, for law students. The site makes it much easier to send your resumé and cover letter to law firms. Rather than researching and emailing each firm one-by-one, Resumé Launchpad makes it easy to apply to many firms at once.Here's how it works
: Resumé Launchpad has a database of 25,000 legal employers
, organized by size, practice area and geographic location. First you select the firms that you want to apply to. Then, you write your cover letter but leave the firm's name and recipient's name blank. The website will automatically insert the correct information into your cover letter
, similar to a mail-merge. Then, upload your resumé and click send; your job application will be emailed to all of the selected law firms and the emails appear to come directly from your own email address
. You can also customize individual cover letters and track everything you send.
Resumé Launchpad can save you days of time. Here are what other law students have said:
* "This is truly amazing. Exactly what I've been looking for in my job search.
* "Your site is absolutely awesome. ... This kind of thing was sorely needed.
* "Just wanted to say what a brilliant idea for a site and it's really such a great tool for every law student.
I put a lot of work into the site and I would love to hear what you think.
