While a law firm asks for specific education, experience, contacts and portables at certain law firms, what if the candidates were to ask for their own list of must-haves? How would a firm measure up?
Often, when my friends talk about finding a significant other, they have a long list of must-haves that someone has to fulfill in order for them to consider that person for a partner.
