Recently, Delia Swan was a panelist at the BALIF meeting in San Francisco. The panel was geared toward those attorneys who were in the process of the job hunt and needed expert advice on how to navigate and understand the current legal market. Delia was the only recruiter on the panel, and she provided thorough advice about resumes, cover letters and interviews.
