Career Advice – Always be open to new opportunities and say yes to them.

One valuable piece of advice that will benefit you throughout your entire life is to always say yes when invited to coffee by Elizabeth Liu and Ruby Sheikh from Georgetown University Law Center. I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Elizabeth and Ruby about their work at Georgetown Law’s Office of Public Interest and Community Service. Our conversation covered a range of topics, including best practices for recruiting new attorneys, the varying interests and priorities of law students at different stages of their education, and how to effectively attract top talent to the U.S. Department of Commerce.

This is just one example of the many productive discussions the Office of the General Counsel is having with our colleagues and partners to enhance our federal legal practice. At Commerce, our mission is to foster economic growth and opportunity for all communities. We are dedicated to creating an inclusive and diverse workplace that is accessible to all employees. Our work has a significant impact on various aspects of American society, such as promoting U.S. economic competitiveness, strengthening domestic industries, and generating quality jobs in communities across the nation.

We are eager to inspire and recruit new attorneys who share our passion for public service and our mission to create an economy that benefits all Americans. If you are a current law student with questions about Commerce, please reach out to us. We can connect you with a law school alum here at Commerce who can provide insight and answer your inquiries. You can also learn more about OGC, explore employment opportunities, or submit your resume on our website.

Authored by Catherine F. I. Andrade, Chief of Staff to the Deputy General Counsel for Administration, this blog post has been formatted for easy reading and understanding. We hope to hear from you soon and welcome you to join us in our efforts to create a better future for all Americans.
