Job Search Q&As
- Q: I am a third year associate, currently working at a large, AmLaw 100 firm in New York. Things are going well for me in my current position, but I would like to move to another firm in New York that is comparable in size and prestige, but that offers more mentorship and career development opportunities for young associates. How long should I expect my job search to take from the time that I begin searching to the time when I am ultimately placed at another law firm?
- It is great to be working with someone who is so competent, attentive and responsive. It definitely makes this whole process much easier.
- ''Thank you for all of your help over the past few months. Your dedication and professionalism are unmatched. Thanks again for everything.''
- I really appreciate your kind words. You are without a doubt the best recruiter I have worked with. You will be my recommendation to anyone who asks.
- It was great chatting with Robyn. I've had the opportunity to chat with a few recruiters over the years but have never been as impressed as I was with her enthusiasm and ability to pin-point the specific steps that I have taken over the course of my law school and professional life to advance my career in bankruptcy law.
- I cannot tell you enough how much I appreciated your help and enjoyed working with you. My only regret in accepting the job is that we couldn't work together longer.
- Thanks so much for all your help. If I decide to come back east I will definitely reach out to you.
- Robyn: Thank you for all of your help with the job hunt, but we can stop the presses--at least for now. Yesterday I accepted a federal clerkship with a district judge for the next 21 months. Hopefully we can work together as my clerkship comes to an end, and the clerkship makes me a bit more marketable. That would be profitable for both of us! Thank you again for your substantial help, and I look forward to working with you again.
- I hope all is well. I recently secured a position as a legal recruiter and therefore will no longer be looking for a new job. Thank you for helping me look for a job over the last several months and for all of your advice.
- Robyn, Thanks for the nice letter and what you have done to date. I have to say I have spoken to numerous recruiters over time and you are the only who has really taken the time to understand what makes me unique, provide substantive suggestions to me and act proactively on my behalf. I want you to know I appreciate it.
- I am so grateful for your assistance throughout these past couple of months. I really have enjoyed working with you and very much appreciate your efforts.
- Thank you once again for taking time out of your morning to speak with me today. I found your advice and guidance to be extremely helpful.
