Excelling at the Mundane

An article in CareerJournal.Com is a reminder that it is important to do a good job on your assignments–even if they are mundane. Junior associates can be tasked with some pretty uninspiring work. Most of us did not go to law school in hopes that someday we would be placed on a large due dilligence project. There is nothing glamerous about spending two weeks reviewing documents for a large anti-trust litigation. But it is still important to do your best on these assignments because senior associates and partners will be judging you and forming lasting first impressions. Do a good job and you will be rewarded with more interesting and challenging work; show a lot of attitude and you may soon be shown the door!
