Career coaching for lawyers can include topics such as:

  • Crafting an effective and actionable legal business development plan;
  • Acting on your business development plan through targeting and consistency;
  • Authentic networking strategies to nourish, build, and further develop relationships;
  • Crafting a legal resume and improving your LinkedIn profile to articulate your accomplishments and personal brand story;

I found Jason Levin through the Association of Corporate Counsel coaching list.  As a lawyer, I highly recommend working with him.  I benefited from his general career coaching and sales/marketing skills, and we hit the ground running because of his familiarity with the legal marketplace.  Jason helps push you to take the right next steps.

- Dave S. - Senior In-House Counsel

Jason gave me the tools I needed to communicate my qualifications effectively and the confidence I needed to make connections during my search. Together we created a strategy and narrative that was true to my personality and passions, which enabled me to find the perfect fit in my search to take the next step in my legal career. I'm not the type of person who asks for help easily, but working with Jason was exactly what I needed. With the right attitude, Jason can help you to get out of your own way to make meaningful professional connections and win the position you seek.
