Treat Your Job Search As a Full-Time Job

By from Office
Recruiter, BCG Attorney Search
Associates are busy people. In fact, many associates approach legal recruiters like me because they would like to be less busy, and are seeking an opportunity to help them meet that goal. Many attorneys have no idea how to conduct a job search, or to get information about law firms that may be a fit for them. Recruiters certainly possess information about firms, but keep in mind that our opinions about which firms are “good,” but these are colored by our own experiences practicing law. Only you can decide if a particular law firm is a fit for you.
