Customizing Your Career
At O'Melveny, we recognize and appreciate that every lawyer's career trajectory is different and there is no "one-size-fits-all" career plan. Our talent development program facilitates opportunities for lawyers to tailor their experience at O'Melveny to fit their own unique career goals and needs. For a particular individual, this might mean, among other career goals, paving a path toward a position in government, an in-house position with one of our clients, a life in academia, or partnership in the Firm. It may also mean taking some time away from the Firm to pursue personal endeavors and being welcomed back to the Firm when the time is right.
Career customization can be summed up in one word: Flexibility. Flexibility to explore and move forward with the best "next steps" for success upon a unique career path. Flexibility to achieve greater "work/life effectiveness"—a term we use to define a lawyer who achieves a sense of overall effectiveness in both the professional and personal realms.
Complementing the options that allow you to customize your career are the foundations for success—core programs that we have made standard across the Firm because we believe they advance our values and create an environment where talent can thrive and flourish. These programs interact synergistically to create a professional environment that simultaneously provides training, guidance, challenging and rewarding work assignments, and clear expectations and feedback.
