Georgia - Atlanta

Atlanta has grown to more than 4 million people, making it the largest city in the Southeast. There's plenty of development in commercial, residential, and mixed-use properties to be found throughout this expansive metropolis, along with a surprising amount of trees. Atlanta is also home to four AmLaw 100 and three AmLaw 200 firms. Most of the large law firms are in midtown or presently relocating there. The mid-sized and smaller firms are setting up shop downtown, with just a couple remaining in Buckhead.

Atlanta is considered to be a "lifestyle" city, and the legal community is accommodating to candidates from out of state. You won't need the Georgia Bar if you take the one-day attorney's exam.

Traffic? What traffic? There exists a big misconception about the amount of time the average resident of Atlanta spends in his/her car. If you live inside the city near downtown, midtown, the Virginia highlands, or Buckhead, you can be at work in less than 15 minutes. Atlanta has been hailed as one of the nation's most drivable cities.

There are new bars and restaurants that pop up every month throughout the city. There is also a large number of music venues, and every concert tour travels through this city. Churchill Grounds, Atlanta's premier live jazz club is open seven days a week, showcasing artists from around the country. The Fox Theatre gets traveling Broadway plays and the High Museum exhibits works of art from around the world. Soon, construction will be completed on a grand symphony hall.

This year, Inc. rated Atlanta the number-one major metropolitan city for entrepreneurs to do business. The city has fully recovered from the malaise of the 2000 recession. Atlanta consistently outpaces the nation in job growth, too, with 61,800 new jobs generated in Atlanta in 2003, while nationally the number of jobs plummeted by 74,000.

Atlanta does not have one particular industry of focus. It is known as a diversified city. Atlanta has corporations in the energy, media, technology, manufacturing, banking, service, transportation, and many other sectors. Therefore, when one particular area is hit hard, there are usually countless other industries that excel. The hottest practice in town seems to be in real estate. It seems because of all the development being done around the city, there will always be a significant need for real estate associates.

Before travelling, check the weather.

I worked with Nadeen over the course of a few months and have to say that she was absolutely phenomenal. Her approach was very different from other recruiters I've worked with; she took the time to get to know me my goals, my aspirations and my experiences and was really focused on finding the right role for me. After our initial call, she wasted no time in researching firms that offered what I was looking for and put together a plan specific for my unique situation. Once my details were submitted, interview requests followed shortly thereafter and I was fortunate to have Nadeen in my corner providing invaluable coaching and guidance at every stage of the interview process (having been in the legal industry for so long, I didn't think there would be so much to learn about interview techniques but as I learned from Nadeen, there is a right way and a wrong way to answer even the most-straight forward of interview questions!). Nadeen ensured that I was well prepared and able to maneuver successfully through this minefield, and as a result of her tactful negotiations, we secured multiple offers! It was a real pleasure working with Nadeen and I am fortunate to have found her. She was proactive, provided me with regular updates and always stayed a step ahead of me. She is very professional, knows the industry well and provided excellent feedback during each stage of the process. Nadeen exceeded my expectations in every respect and I would absolutely, without hesitation, recommend her to others.


I liked how many resumes BCG sent out for me. I felt my resume was always going out and there was consideration put into what kinds of firms and locations I wanted to concentrate on. There was constant communication and updating on whether you were or weren't hearing back on my resume and the possibility of interviews getting scheduled so that was really nice- the level of communication.

Nadeen was great. She sort of quartered back the whole process for me and made it easy. As a lateral, I didn't have time do to do the research, write all the materials, submit them, and coordinate interviews. So just having her as the point person was awesome. I've recommended you to several of my peers. You make the process easier; you seem to have your finger on the pulse in terms of where there's a need; and in my case, were willing to move quickly to make the transition work.
