What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?
Billing Coordinator in Los Angeles:
"Work for an employer that values your services."
Constantly update your technical skills. People in this industry get complacent and are easily replaced by changing technology or smarter, and more capable talent. Additionally, if you don't like numbers, excel, computer softwares and e-billing programs you are in the wrong profession. A valuable biller makes for easy collections. Improved collections makes a law firm profitable and management happy. Get behind on servicing your attorneys and partners and you will slow down the economic progress of your firm and billing attorneys.
