Records Manager Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Records Manager in Dallas:
"Do Your Research."
I would advise the candidate to find out exactly how many people you will be managing and who exactly are you reporting to. Research the company you will be working for, it will pay off in the end.

Records Manager in Houston:
"Be Smart."
Continue to develop your skills. Take advantage of all opportunities. Think outside the box.

Records Manager in Pierre:
"Independent profession, daily challenges."
Seek training classes for legal records.

Records Manager in San Diego:
"Master Of Your Own Work, Commander Of Nothing."
Be prepared to know your stuff, as no one else in the law firm will know what exactly it is you do. If you have staff, be prepared to train constantly, as their positions are not ones in which someone makes a career of. Learn to work around non-existent budgets, fights for new equipment and questions about what it is you do all day long. This is a job you really have to enjoy doing for its own sake. Negotiate your salary well at the time you're hired because you will not receive the raises you expect, nor will your bonuses be a flashy as the attorneys or even the paralegals - even though you hold their hands through problems with software, processes and getting the client what they want.
