I think more than anything else, I really appreciated that it was effective. A couple of the factors that I appreciated were the transparent communication was great, being kept up on the status of things. Initial expectation management, a layout of what I could expect in terms of how long it would take for the firms to be responsive and what I might expect when they did respond. Having only done a job search with you guys, I don't know how it would have gone if I hadn't used you guys, but I can affirmatively say that having worked with BCG that it was effective and I didn't have to put active energy into it beyond clicking yes or no to submit to firms, based on the updated links that I was given, so from that aspect it was fairly time effective. A couple of other recruiters reached out to me while I was working with Becca, but also it was a matter of the fact that Becca had a fairly large portfolio of possible client's that she could recommend me to that she had worked with before which was more attractive than the others who would only provide on occasion, smaller firms. Having worked with you guys, I would recommend you to others.
I think my favorite thing about working with BCG and Becca was just overall the advice on how to approach the search, I feel like that was very informative. I think that the search brought to my attention, opportunities that I might not have otherwise found, so ensuring that it was as broad as possible. BCG is the first recruiting firm I have worked with and I feel like they are number 1!
My favorite thing about BCG was the summary sheets I got every week. Those helped me keep track of what was going on verses other recruiters that would say "I am applying to this position" and I would never hear back about it either way, and in some cases, I am not sure that they ever applied. This is my second time working with Becca and I have the confidence to know that the work was getting done and I didn't need to fret over every detail with her.
I really liked the recruiter I worked with and her experience and I appreciated her ability to guide me through the process. I really helps to narrow your search down to jobs that are a fit for what you are looking for. BCG is the best recruiting firm I have ever worked with.
My recruiter was very responsive in communicating with me during the job hunt. Communication was huge. Someone else doing the work for you is great. It's hard to penetrate the market sometimes or to know about opportunities so it was great to have eyes and ears where you don't and I think BCG really helped me out by having a foot in the game, that was very helpful. I would for sure use BCG again if I ever needed to.
BCG was very responsive. The recruiter I worked with was candid, which was very helpful. BCG also helped me focus my search and also made me aware of opportunities I wouldn't have found otherwise. BCG is the best overall recruiting company I've interacted with. My recruiter was knowledgeable, and she seemed actually invested in furthering my career.
[My favorite thing about BCG was] the communication, with everyone working together across markets and communicating with me as well...I mainly worked with Christina and she was very on top of everything. She was also very helpful and knowledgeable with interviews and knowing the process, so she helped me a lot with that...it was very responsive [and] took a lot of the time off my hands. Communicating with the firms and also handling some of the awkward conversation situations, being that middle person really helped [made my job search easier]. [The words that come to mind when I think of BCG are] friendly, professional, and top tier. I've worked with several recruiters and overall BCG was just much better. Based on the recruiting companies that I worked with I would say [you are] number one. And I've worked with someone at Parker Lynch, Wegman, and then a couple of other solo people. Each for different reasons, I think BCG was the best. [BCG] was very friendly and knowledgeable and responsive. They have good connections to the firms and a good brand for getting you out there and working for different firms to get you where you want to be.
I would say Becca's responsiveness and thoroughness with explanations providing as much contact as possible [was my favorite part of working with BCG]. I just left it in her hands. The only thing that I needed to do was to do great interviews. Other than that she managed all of it. [BCG is] very knowledgeable, [has] expertise, [and] you've got great staff in terms of their expertise as well as experience in the field. Also, I would just add that [I liked] the responsiveness and I liked the reporting thing that you do on a weekly basis. [BCG has] all the tools in place to make sure that the candidate has an up to date picture of what their candidacy looks like. [You are] by far the best and I have worked with lots. I would definitely recommend you guys. I would describe the company as thorough [and] knowledgeable. You know the field [and] have lots of information and resources that are available to candidates.
I worked with Becca and Christina primarily, but there were other recruiters involved who were very good. I think the best thing that they did that I noticed was different from other recruiters that I've worked with in the past is the strategic approach they took to send the applications in [and] send resumes in to a large number of places. I thought that made a lot of sense and it worked out really well. And they were great to work with. For me, it turned out I was kind of an unusual candidate. It turned out to be a very quick process...I wasn't expecting that. I think part of that was just because of the strategy of applying widely. I thought that was great. [When I think of BCG] honestly the first word that comes to mind is Harrison Barnes. [He is] one of the reasons I liked BCG before I got involved with you guys. He is kind of well-known in the law community. I've always liked his articles...there were one or two in particular that I had read, I think about getting back into big law after a leave that I think were very good and well put together...it kind of put me over the edge...that's what made me decide to reach out. I do have another recruiting friend. I think it's notable that I didn't go with his company for this. I've got another recruiter that I've worked with and they have even placed me in the past and I didn't go with them. I put you guys ahead of them in terms of just getting the job done. I would describe you guys as being very efficient [and] very focused on the end result, which is great. Again, I think the whole approach from the beginning was [to] get the best results in the most efficient way. I think that that's the right approach.
The communication was reasonably good and timely. I thought the woman I worked with was very professional and she was good at communicating in terms of following up in a reasonable amount of time. It worked and I'm here, so I am very happy as a result.
[My favorite thing about working with BCG was the] responsiveness of the person who was working with me. It's another resource. I am still doing everything else on LinkedIn and using other resources. But it's an additional resource that's able to reach out to companies on my behalf, perhaps in a way that I couldn't, with more formality. [The first words that come to mind when I think of BCG Attorney Search are] helpful [and] resource.
I chose the person; it was Rebecca at BCG in particular because of the attention I knew that she was going to give. She gave daily hand holding attention, which is critical. That just made a big difference. And I chose her over someone, who I was told is the biggest name in the field. [I did this] because I knew I wanted someone who was going to be a cheerleader [as] opposed to somebody who just had some big name. [BCG] walked [me] through each step of the process. I was coming from a different career [and] different market and didn't really know how I should present myself or anything. I knew I had strengths but I didn't know how to package them for this kind of thing. I knew how to package them for a client, but not for a new place [of] employment. [I would describe BCG as] scrappy, hungry, [and] supportive. I would rank you highly. You need someone who is really going to walk each step of the way with you. You already have your own cache so you don't need some place to give you cache. You need someone who is going to explain the process [and] go through the ups and downs with you. That's what you [have] going.
[The best part was] the volume of applications you sent out in a very short period of time. [Working with BCG made my job search easier because] I found a job. [BCG is] efficient, professional, and responsive. I worked with one other local recruiter and BCG was much better.
What were some of my favorite things about working with BCG? One would be my recruiter Becca. I think she was honestly the best thing. I enjoyed the report that I got every week. For me, Becca made the experience. That's all I can really say. She was really responsive and always very positive. I also enjoyed getting the reports that let me know what was happening and what wasn't happening, who passed on me, who was interviewing me, [and] who was still sitting on my application. That was very useful and I enjoyed all that. But honestly I just liked my recruiter, a ton, from the beginning to the end. I think I may have gotten really lucky.How did working with BCG make my job search easier? To be honest you all did most of the work, I just went to the interviews when they came. One thing I did like is that I would get a pool of things that were available. I'm barred in a few states so it's kind of hard for me to search for a job in three different places. Also, Becca was able to let me know what was available in the three states I was interested in going to. From the firms that she found I was able to go to their websites and see what the department looked like and whether or not I really wanted to pursue any of those that were available. I think when you have three memberships in different states, that [using BCG] makes it a whole lot easier.The first three words that come to mind when I think about BCG are Becca, surprised, and success. I would say surprised because I learned much more about the company afterwards, so I was kind of nervous about being a part of it, but I thought it was pretty good. I would say success because I did get a job pretty quickly. I think it was six weeks.I worked with one other [recruiting firm] before and I have friends that have worked with them. Out of the ones that I have worked with personally you all were way better. I feel like I got more. At the other place if I contacted somebody I may not get a response all the time. [With] Becca, she was texting me and calling me [to keep me updated]. Anytime I would send something to her I would get a response within [about] an hour. Also, sometimes people don't like to give you bad news if you ask about it, but Becca was always open to letting me know what was going on. It seems like we were in the process together, which is very nice.If I were describing you to one of my peers I would say BCG is very professional and very efficient. You know that report you send every week? I received my report every Friday and it gave me some insight to what was going on. The other company I worked with didn't do that. I would say [you are] very efficient, and very up-to-date about what's going on. It's not like this process where you don't know what the recruiters [are] doing. I kind of had an idea of what Becca was doing. That made me feel a lot more comfortable because I felt like progress was being made. Even if I was getting denied or passed by, I still knew that my application was [getting sent] out [to] different places every week or that I was applying for one or two things every week. I guess that's the biggest thing. Becca was great. She was really responsive, and the reports just let me feel a little bit more at ease with what you all were doing and the places I was applying to. I was moving forward.
[I like how BCG] took the lead, and got everything done. [It was] a stress and hassle free process. You handled all the necessary background work, [such as] cover letter writing and the application process, and allowed me to focus on my current job without distractions with the process. [BCG is] reliable, efficient, and great. I would strongly recommend you. It was a stress free process. [BCG] took care of everything and kept [up] the communication without overly hassling me.
Becca was great. She was super supportive and very communicative. She emphasized that getting things to firms early is really important.
I liked the feedback. I liked being able to check what the status was every week.You guys just applied me to places, and I appreciated that I knew at least most of what I was going to go into at an interview.I would tell others to use you. You're just great.
I thought that because BCG was a larger recruiting firm that service would not be as personable--I was so very wrong and am SO glad I gave BCG a chance. Becca Levine was so great. It was easy and pleasurable to work with her and she was so responsive--I felt like I was her only client.I simply would not have the job I do today [if not for BCG]. I had worked with other recruiters for 6+ months before working with BCG and accepted my current position within about a month after working with Becca.The first three words that come to mind when I think of BCG are effective, personable, and diligent.I would rank you at the very top [compared to other recruiting companies]. No question about it.If you're looking to make a move, contact BCG. While I cannot attest that every recruiter is as wonderful as Becca, her dedication and commitment to finding me a new position was unparalleled and working with her was an incredibly positive experience.
