    You Need to Stop Competing and Seeing Differences Between You and Others

    In this article Harrison discusses the importance of having open lines of communication. According to him this will consistently keep you employed. You need to be friends with everyone you meet in business and stop competing and seeing differences. You need to understand that you have no opponents. Your success will largely be determined by your ability to go into the world, find commonality and make friends with the people around you. You must abolish from your mind the idea that the people you are dealing with in your career and in business are your competition. You must get rid of the thought of competition. Be friendly with everyone you meet. Stop looking for differences, and do everything within your power to find affinity with other people. This will change your career permanently.

    First Year Associate Who Immediately Knew he Wanted a Lifestyle Change

    This first year candidate had only started working at his firm in October of 2019 but by June of 2020 he had already contacted me to see if I could help him find a new job. He was currently working at one of the best international law firms (also an Am Law 100 firm) in their New York City office. He had gone to an average law school on the west coast and one that this particular firm probably has never hired from before. In fact, I was shocked that he had even landed a job at this prestigious firm, coming from this law school, despite having stellar law school grades. This candidate however was a people person, charming, funny and quick-witted. He had landed the position through a personal connection.

    Home is Where the Heart Is

    This litigation candidate reached out to BCG and submitted his resume, and I was eventually assigned to work with him. He had an amazing resume and graduated from a top ten university and a top ten law school. He had decided to go work for an AmLaw 100 firm after law school in Washington, D.C. After working for a few years there, he and his wife decided to move back to the wife's hometown of Minneapolis. They have many family members that live there and wanted to have more of a support network. He then transitioned and worked for the government for a year to get court experience. It was a highly regarded government position. It was at this point in his career that he reached out to BCG to get help to move back to a law firm. He had tried applying for a few months on his own but was not having much luck. I called him and discussed what kind of law he wanted to practice, where he wanted to practice, and what size firm he wanted to target. I went straight to work with his wish list and started sending him firms to approve. After a few weeks of submitting him, he informed me that he was willing to expand his search and move back to Washington, D.C. or New York for the right job. I started sending him jobs in those cities for him to approve and then began submitting him to firms in three cities: Minneapolis, D.C., and New York. He understood that the wider you can cast your net, the more chances you are to get placed.
