As many of you know, Kelly is a proud graduate of Albany Law School (the number one law school between NYC and the border!). Like many Albany graduates, she's making millions each year, albeit in a slightly different field than most lawyers.
That isn't to say she doesn't have advice for would-be attorneys. Just check out this sage career wisdom that - apparently - many of you are missing.
In her memoir released last year, "Settle for More," Kelly described how she landed her first job as a lawyer fresh out of law school in 1995, and she offered advice for anyone applying for a new job in any field.She, a simple third-tier K-JDer, parlayed that job into a nine-year run at Jones Day followed by landing a gig at Fox News.
"I did something all job applicants should do — I asked for the job," she wrote. "I told them that if they extended an offer, I would accept it on the spot, that I had done the research and investigation, and this was where I wanted to be."
"Don't underestimate the power this message can have on a potential employer," Kelly wrote. "Everyone likes to be flattered. Of course it works better if it's true."
So, kids, what's your problem? Why are you bitching about $40k jobs in Boston with many applicants?
Maybe you could start with something as simple as your cover letter. Are YOU telling prospective employers you're desperate enough to accept on the spot? If not, what are you waiting for?
Your spot at Fox News may be waiting.
