If only it were that easy on your first job hunt…or any job for that matter! It’s not. We know it, but does your potential employer get to hold all the cards?
In this, his first book, former Manhattan prosecutor Paul Caulfield offers a surprisingly entertaining and honest account of the universal, sometimes dreadful…even humorous experience of searching for a job in the world of law & order and becoming a prosecutor in the storied Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, D.A.N.Y., and for the man at its helm, legendary New Yorker Robert M. Morgenthau.
Does (every) experience matter?
What’s failing feel like when everyone’s watching? When you're alone?
Is being yourself, at the end of the day, the answer?
Getting to D.A.N.Y. is an enjoyable ride through the stresses, joys, doubts and grind that go with knowing who you are, discovering where you're going and learning that you’re not alone.
Here's what former D.A.N.Y. prosecutors are saying about Getting to D.A.N.Y.: Lessons from a New York Job Hunt -
"So well written."
"My wife couldn't put it down."
"Honest, accurate, and thoroughly enjoyable."
"A must-read for that rare law student who aspires not to Big Law, but who dreams instead of joining the ranks of the country's premier prosecutor and spending his or her days in the service of justice, 'doing the right thing.'"
