    The Fear of Rejection and Your Career

    By Feb 28,2017

    In the legal recruiting realm, a recruiter typically needs to introduce a candidate to more than one law firm in order to get the candidate an interview. You could have a candidate at the top of their class from Harvard Law School practicing at one of the ten largest firms in the United States and they could be rejected by numerous law firms. Why? Maybe partners in the law firm do not like Harvard Law School graduates. Maybe the law firm does not like the person’s last name. Maybe the law firm had a bad experience the last time they hired...

    Several years ago, we were launching a newsletter for law schools. One of our employees, who was working on the project, decided that the title of the newsletter should be, “The Signal.” He was very enthusiastic about this particular title. In fact, I had never seen him so enthusiastic about anything. The problem with this name was that the domain name for it had been taken long ago and I seem to remember that the person who owned the domain name had no interest in selling it.

I remember he had gotten sick at around 8:00 in the evening and had been ill most of the night. His illness continued into the early afternoon that day and I remembered when I went to school, that morning I could hear him moaning from his illness.

    The Two Most Important Ingredients of Success

    By Feb 18,2017

    The day after September 11th, I was watching television when an official came on air to comment about the economic crisis that was about to unfold when the stock market opened. “We know that when the market opens it is going to be very bad. We also know that some of the greatest fortunes in a generation will be made over the next few weeks by people who have faith in our economy.” Over the next few years, I started reading all sorts of stories in financial publications about various people who had bought
