An important part of any job search is opportunity for advancement towards your career goals. Therefore, when you are looking at attorney jobs
, be sure you look at what you would do in the future if you were able to get the job, and what you would like to accomplish in the job in general.
Any job you have will impact you in a certain way. You want to be sure that you can provide yourself with plenty of things to do for the job, so you want to be sure that no matter what happens, you will be looking at the various ways in which you will find yourself impacted by the world around you and by the job that you hope to be doing. For many people the job that they are doing is going to have a huge impact on their life. Therefore, as you come to terms with what you hope to accomplish in your life, you want to be sure that you can do all you can to provide yourself with the best that the world has to offer to you.
There are a few things that you can do to make sure that you get the right attorney job for you and that you are going to be happiest with the job you have chosen. First of all, focus on the way that you are able to get the job that you desire
, and then make sure that you are going to be able to be just fine with the job once you have it. The job you take should be something that you love to do, and it should be something that you can see yourself doing for a long time to come. If you take the time that you have both looking for and working in a job and try to make something out of the life that you have been given, you will find that attorney jobs
are going to end up being perfect for you in the end.

Harrison Barnes is the legal profession's mentor and may be the only person in your legal career who will tell you why you are not reaching your full potential and what you really need to do to grow as an attorney--regardless of how much it hurts. If you prefer truth to stagnation, growth to comfort, and actionable ideas instead of fluffy concepts, you and Harrison will get along just fine. If, however, you want to stay where you are, talk about your past successes, and feel comfortable, Harrison is not for you.
Truly great mentors are like parents, doctors, therapists, spiritual figures, and others because in order to help you they need to expose you to pain and expose your weaknesses. But suppose you act on the advice and pain created by a mentor. In that case, you will become better: a better attorney, better employees, a better boss, know where you are going, and appreciate where you have been--you will hopefully also become a happier and better person. As you learn from Harrison, he hopes he will become your mentor.
