What's the difference between the work experience/additional legal work/other experience sections?

Zeekbeek divides profiles into numerous sections, enabling site members to display and filter information about lawyers, law students and legal professionals.

For an overview of how to edit your profile, please see our Help Desk article, "How do I edit my profile?"


Sometimes it can be hard to distinguish one section from another, especially if your own experiences are relatively few.  As you progress through law school and other concurrent life experiences, however, you'll find that the extra categories become increasingly helpful.

This article provides a brief overview of how various work fields differ from each other.

 

 


1.  The Work Experience/Employment History section is the standard location for listing your work experience.  The fields include:  Company, Date Start (and End, if applicable), Title and Description. You may wish to use this section for legal work with a firm, government agency or other organization, or other significant employment.  

 

To add a Work Experience/Employment History entry, click the Add button.

 

A pop-up window will appear.  Complete the form.  Fields marked with a red stripe are required. 

 

 

Click the Submit button once you've completed all applicable fields.

 

2.  The Additional Legal Work section allows you to highlight legal work that may not easily fit into standard employment categories.  This section is useful for self-employment situations, paraprofessional work, and pro-bono work, for instance.   

 

To add an Additional Legal Work entry, click the Add button.

A pop-up window will appear.  Complete the form.  Fields marked with a red stripe are required. 

 

 

3.  The Other Experiences section provides a place for you to present any important non-work experiences (such as general charitable volunteer work, student exchange trips and other significant activities) relevant to your commitment and character.

 

To add an Other Experiences entry, click the Add button.

 

A pop-up window will appear.  Complete the form.  Fields marked with a red stripe are required. 

 

TIP: In addition to showing your current and past activities, you can also show interest in future opportunities.

While you're in Edit Profile mode, navigate to the bottom of the screen to find your Settings panel.   You can either scroll down manually, or click the Settings option within the left column.

 

 

Click the Edit button to change your settings.

You can signal your interest in mentorships, internships and employment from this box.  Click on the YES/NO toggle switches until each one displays your preference.

Lawyers, law firms and legal professionals will be able to find you, based on your specific interests in these areas.

  

After you make your selections, be sure to click the Submit button.
