On this podcast our BCG Attorney Search team of Recruiting Manager Brie Mills and Recruiter Karen Wenzel discuss the role of receiving and accepting criticism in a legal career. It can be painful, no doubt, but everyone will be on the receiving end of it in their legal careers from time to time—especially young associates. But it’s professional, not personal. They explain why this criticism should be considered an opportunity for growth.
And take note: When senior associates and partners criticize you they’re also testing you. Are you a good prospect? Are you teachable? So while you may feel it in your gut, also take it to heart. But whatever you do, learn to take it: How you take it may determine the future of your legal career.
