FUN FACT ABOUT LAW FIRM GATEKEEPERS/RECRUITING COORDINATORS
In the mid-1980s, when attorneys started moving firms (before then attorneys tended to stay at the same firm their entire careers), law firms started noticing two things: (1) hiring partners were not billing many hours or getting much done, and (2) they also tended to leave the firms they were at quickly. Hiring partners were fielding calls from LPPs and attorneys seeking jobs all day and this made getting work done difficult. In addition, because they were constantly speaking with LPPs, one thing led to another and the LPPs would invariably draw the hiring partners away. Realizing the ridiculousness of putting hiring partners in charge of the process, law firms started recruiting departments and started making everyone go through recruiting coordinators when they were interested in working at the firm.
