How do I submit a resume?
Each job listing will be followed by a button that will connect you to our on-line response form. Once connected, please make sure you complete the required fields, including the "source" information, which tells us how you learned of Morgan Lewis. Then, just cut and paste your resume in the text field and hit the submit button and your resume will become part of our database. Please note that your resume will be kept under active consideration for 90 days from receipt. If, after 90 days, you wish to be considered further, you must resubmit your resume.
What is a source and why am I required to select one?
The source lets us know how you learned about the position. There are two drop down menus from which you are required to select information. The first menu is the source type, i.e. Advertisement, Job Board, Job Fair, etc., while the second requests you to identify the specific source, i.e. the name of the newspaper, job board or job fair. If you learned about the position by visiting our Corporate Web Site, please select Corporate Web Site from both menus. If you were referred by a current Morgan Lewis employee, please select Employee Referral and enter the employee's name in the field provided.
Can I submit my resume via Mail or FAX?
Yes, however, we receive hundreds of resumes for any given position. Resumes submitted through our online response form are received almost instantaneously, while those submitted in hardcopy are often delayed. You could miss the window of opportunity because of a delay.
Can I revisit these pages and apply for other positions?
Yes, we encourage you to revisit the pages. If you decide to apply for another position, your must resubmit your resume. Please do not type "Resume on File" in lieu of a resume, as this text will override your existing resume in our database.
How do I submit an updated copy of my resume to Morgan Lewis?
Your resume must be submitted in response to a specific job listing. Please search the listings, identify the job(s) for which you wish to apply, and complete the online response form. Cut and paste the newest copy of your resume in the resume text field. This submission will then replace the existing copy we have in our database.
Why am I prompted to fill out additional information when I apply for some employment opportunities but not for others?
Pre-screening questions may be included for positions with unique requirements. The questions help us to more readily identify qualified candidates. If for some reason you are not considered for the position for which you have applied, your resume will be retained for 90 days and may be considered for other similar positions.
How can I include a cover letter with my resume addressed to the recruiter or hiring manager?
All resumes are received in a central database which can be searched by job and required skill set. It is not necessary to address a cover letter to a specific individual.
How do I know if you received my resume via the online response form?
Once you submit your resume, you will immediately receive an acknowledgement. This message is your confirmation that we have received your resume. If a problem occurs during the transmission of your resume, you will receive an error message and you will be asked to re-submit your resume at that time. Please do not call to confirm receipt of your resume.
I submitted my resume through the online response form but I'd like to mail it to you just to make sure you received it.
If you received the confirmation message, you can be sure we received your resume. It is important to note that you should not submit your resume multiple times for the same position as this will not increase your chances of being contacted. The only time you should send us another copy of your resume is to update the information or to be considered for a position if it has been more than 90 days since your last submission.
