Ask the Hiring Attorney® is Shauna’s expert Q&A column especially for law school students, recent law school graduates, and junior attorneys.
In 2012, Shauna became Bloomberg Law’s first and only contributing columnist for their subsription-only student Career Resources. Her Ask the Hiring Attorney column is a key part of Bloomberg Law’s outreach to approximately 200 American Bar Association (ABA) accredited law schools, as well as those law schools’ career centers, law libraries, and nearly 140,000 law students and recent graduates.

Staring in April 2016, the column has been updated and reprinted for the American Bar Association (ABA) for Law Students’ blog, “Beyond the Bar.”
In the column, Shauna answers questions from entry-level lawyers on resume writing, interviewing, career development, job search, business etiquette, references, quitting a job, networking, business development, job performance, reputation management, social media, background checks, working with legal recruiters, telecommuting, informational interviews, building technical skills, gaps in employment, and more.
