I finished my career coaching, #lifeafterlawschool! I learned so much. For today’s post I will interview my team mate Krystle.
Jen: Introduce yourself.
Krystle: My name is Krystle A. Clervaud, Esq. I’m a licensed, practicing attorney in Southern California.
Jen: Where are you in your legal career?
Krystle: Currently, I am a solo pracitioner. My focus is on Family Law, Criminal Law, and Estate Planning.
Jen: Why were you interested in career coaching?
Krystle: I was interested in career coaching because I know that I have room for improvement and that there may be other avenues that I might want to explore.
Jen: What did you hope to gain?
Krystle: I hoped to gain some insight as to how I could improve my methodology on how I approach my work, gain potential clients, and networking.
Jen: Did you receive what you were looking for?
Krystle: I did. I learned a lot. I received some resources that would be beneficial to me. As well, as my legal career develops, thanks to the exposure of this program, I now have other possible avenues I might want to explore, such as in-house counsel.
Jen: Paying for a career coach is definitely an investment in your future. Do you feel it was worth it?
Krystle: Yes, it was definitely worth it. I now have a mentor and a professional connection that I can still reach out to and bounce ideas off of.
Jen: Was the information presented new information for you?
Krystle: Its not that the information, itself, was new, but the way in which I looked at those things that I already knew. Having a new insight helped me view my strengths and weaknesses/challenges differently.
Jen: Did you learn real skills that will serve you professionally?
Krystle: Yes, I did. I’m definitely working on my CV and my networking skills.
Jen: Did you gain anything that you didn’t expect to gain, a nice bonus if you will?
Krystle: I gained some new professional connections/ contacts that are Black Women. I love when I that happens. We’re not always represented or visible, as when I see us, its absolute magic.
Jen: Do you recommend the Crimson Law Coach to others?
Krystle: Yes, I do. I think its a great resource for legal professionals just starting out. Its a great launching pad in helping you find your way and see your options in law.
Jen: Anything else you care to share?
Krystle: This was an absolute great experience.
