When I was in University, I worked for a law firm. They get students in every year over summer to provide research. I joined in February as an employee, not a research student, to provide administrative support on a project.
When summer hit, the students came in and I joined the research pool. Shorty, as a result of consistent good research, and by exhibiting coaching skills, I was promoted to research co-ordinator. This is the title I use on my CV.
Again, as a result of good work and coaching, the research team produced more research, and I got to spend less time on my own research, and more time managing the team and representing the firm in client meetings and conferences. I started giving legal advice (supervised) to some clients.
My question therefore is this: for a young student, I consider being trusted with these responsibilities quite an achievement, in comparison to the normal distribution of experience/responsibility within law students. How do I demonstrate these on a CV as achievements? They have no quantifiable effect, but students don't do this work!
The effect may have been that partners spent less time on whatever, and I took some of their workload, but I can't quantify, prove or demonstrate that.
Anybody got some advice?
If it helps, I've attached the 1 page and 2 page CVs, you can see how I've moved the achievement bullets to the responsibility statements.
