"When I started my professional career as a legal assistant at Skadden, I quickly discovered that the firm is driven by people who are at the cutting edge of their industry and passionate about their work. The environment was hectic and the standards were high, but working in this fast-paced environment with the consummate experts for which Skadden is known shaped my work ethic and professional skills tremendously.
After a few years as a legal assistant, I transferred to a different position in the Client Administration department. The fact that I was able to make such a distinct change to my career path at Skadden is an indication of how much the firm values its employees, encouraging everyone to continually grow and improve both personally and professionally. Dedication, innovation and hard work are defining characteristics of the firm, and employees that exemplify these traits will find that opportunities await them within Skadden. By being able to explore one of the many career paths offered, I found the position that suited both my abilities and my personal goals. I wouldn't be in the position I am in today were it not for the help and encouragement I received all along the way."
