 Dave’s Tech Tips

It seems that everyone (even lawyers!) has an iPad today. Accordingly, it seems appropriate that we look at the top rated iPad apps for lawyers that turn the iPad into a wonderful tool for all lawyers.

By David J. Bilinsky


There are many resources out there:

CBA PracticeLink has a great article on alternative careers.

University of Toledo has a good list of non-traditional legal careers.

Employment Crossing allows you to search legal job openings.

While traditional legal recruiters such as ZSA and Counsel Network are more about traditional legal careers (but offer careers in non-traditional locations and in corporate settings),, and Workopolis offer advice as well as a wide range of possible careers.

Quintessential Careers offers a Top 10 Other Job Board Sites for job seekers as well as great articles such as “The 10-Step Plan to Career Change” along with other career changing resources. 

Weddle’s, along with listing employment, personal development and career success resources, conducts a Users’ Choice Award survey for the best job seeking sites on the web.

Fortune Magazine lists the 10 Hot Careers for 2012 and Beyond. No big surprise that information technology is #1.

Patty Inglish MS in a great article “Top 10 Best Hot Jobs and Careers for 2012–2022: Predictions, Analysis and Comparison  lists a great deal of advice and information for career changers.

The UN’s “Inspira – Human Resources Gateway”.
