Times are tough for jobseekers. Redundancies, spending cuts and a still-wobbly economy means the jobs that do become available are going to be hotly contested by some very well qualified candidates. Is your CV good enough to match up to the competition? Or are you worried that the degree you earned several years ago is now redundant – replaced by newer qualifications that are more current with business practice and more attractive to employers?

There is one effective way to beat your employment blues if you’re facing the cut and thrust of the jobs market, and that is to update your skills set and make that CV more attractive through additional legal training. Not only will it help you to keep pace with your rival candidates, but it will also demonstrate to perspective employers that you are not just sitting back on your laurels and are constantly willing to push yourself to achieve more.

Good for your self-confidence

Extra legal training is also good for you personally. If you’ve spent the last few years ‘coasting’ through a position and only doing the bare minimum to ensure you stay employed, a sense of frustration and disillusionment can start to sap your passion for your chosen path. Once this starts to happen and you stop setting yourself challenges, a career can quickly turn into a ‘routine’ and become stale. You can also find your self-confidence in your own genuine ability rapidly starting to fade.

This self-fulfilling prophecy can be stopped in its tracks very easily with extra legal training that injects fresh ideas and new challenges into your career. And with that injection of impetus comes a renewed passion that can spur you on to look for a more challenging position. The extra legal training that kick-started your career back on track can then play a key factor in showing a prospective employer that you have the ‘get up and go’ that separates the good candidate from the average Jo.

Good for business

Extra legal training is good for business too. It shows clients that you’re qualified in the latest best practice methods and that you’re a trustworthy person whom they can rely upon to do a good job on their behalf. Don’t underestimate your clients. The Internet has given them the power of knowledge and they’ll use it to check that your credentials are up to date and relevant. If all you have is a degree taken 10 years ago and very little else since, your clients are going to wonder how effective you’ll be at giving them the best possible service according to the most up to date methods and practices.

This sword has two edges. Not only will your clients view a lack of current legal training with suspicion, but so too will prospective employers. Who want’s an employee with serious gaps in their knowledge of current practices? It certainly won’t do an employer’s business reputation any favours and will mean you end up receiving a rejection letter and not that all-important call to interview.

So, do you want to stay on the same rung of the same ladder forever? Are you content to languish in a low-level position and avoid pushing yourself on to greater heights? Of course not. We all want to feel that our careers are going somewhere and not stagnating in some backroom office. So if you’re facing the competition in a cutthroat jobs market, make sure your chances are enhanced with some extra legal training.

    What Our Clients Say

    The problem when attending any personal injury legal training course is knowing whether you are actually going to learn anything new or find a different perspective, or whether you will just hear the same things that you have heard many, many times before.

    The good news with MASS Training is that you know it is always going to be the former case. MASS’ courses are practical, informative and excellent value for money. My staff always come back feeling inspired and energised by having their existing knowledge and expertise confirmed, but also by picking up some new practical steps that they can immediately implement to make them more efficient in their day to day tasks.

    I have absolutely no hesitation whatsoever in wholeheartedly recommending MASS Training to anyone looking for Personal Injury Training. It is the best training available.

    MASS Training provide excellent content. The fact that they are in the main practising solicitors or legal executives means that not only do they fully understand their specialist subject matter, but they also know how to use this knowledge in the day to day running of their case load.

    If they are not currently running a course covering the area of law that they are interested I know that if I suggest it to them they will be happy to prepare a course for us either in-house or generally within a matter of weeks.

    We have in the past, and continue to, send our staff on the MASS Diploma Course, an excellent opportunity to develop essential skills and understanding for running RTA matters. If you are not yet ensuring your staff attend MASS Training courses, you are missing out on some of the best Personal Injury Training available.
