My favorite things about BCG Attorney Search is that the staff were very knowledgeable, responsive, friendly, and generally just had a good demeanor. It made it easier to find a job because I had someone that knew the market and that could do the leg work for me. They would send me lists of everything that was coming up and what we were looking for. It made it incredibly easier than doing it on my own. BCG ranks number one when compared with other recruiters that I've worked with.
Lorie Ball was fantastic. I can easily say she was the best recruiter I have worked with, although I have not worked with many. Probably helps that she is an attorney herself. Very communicative and had great insights that helped me land what looks like will not only be a great job, but a great job for me specifically. I'd recommend her without reservation.
Lorie was very attentive and very much aware of what I wanted, what I didn't want, she was casting a wide net, but she took into account what I was really looking for so I really appreciated that instead of doing the mass resume thing. I like that she was really responsive and one of the things I really appreciated about working with her is that she was very involved, I had issues like when should I send my notice and so on and she basically guided me through the whole thing and is still guiding me so I really appreciated that about working with her. First of all, BCG allowed me to know about opportunities that I wouldn't have known about otherwise, so that presented more opportunities than I would have found on my own. Second of all, Lorie took care of everything in terms of the resume, cover letter and follow up that meant that I didn't have to do anything but approve or disapprove the jobs and that basically took care of the whole thing. BCG is definitely at the very top of my list of recruiters.
I really appreciated the resources that [Lorie and BCG] provided through literature and thought it was extremely helpful during my job search. [Lorie] also gave me another voice to bounce ideas off of, kind of an objective 3rd party in a way. I have never worked with any other recruiters but my experience with [Lorie and BCG] was great.
Lorie was extremely personable and she was easy to relate to and easy to talk to. BCG has all of the down low on legal jobs which makes the job search easier. BCG is my favorite recruiter. You guys got me the job I just got!
I think the list of firms available was helpful. The text message follow ups were helpful too. [Working with BCG made my job easier because] you found me places to interview at. [BCG was] thorough, helpful, [and] responsive. [I would rank BCG] at or near the top [compared to other recruiting companies I have worked with]. [BCG is] a good recruiting company.
[Working with BCG] was very easy. I worked with Lorie because I had responded to some listings online and she got right in touch with me. She did a lot of the work and just kept me in the loop. It was very helpful. I felt confident that she was looking at listings that I probably didn't have access to...when I accepted an offer it did make me confident that I was accepting a good offer. I felt confident that I wasn't leaving anything on the table that I would have found otherwise. That gave me some confidence too. I would say [BCG is] helpful. I guess the second word I would think of is quick because it really wasn't long after I got in touch with Lorie that I ended up with an interview and then an offer. So that was great. As far as a third one, I guess efficient. I never actually met Lorie in person, we talked on the phone [and] we emailed. But I really didn't have to put a whole lot of time into the relationship. I had a positive experience working with you all, I ended up with a result that I'm very pleased with and I didn't really have to do a lot to maintain that relationship. Lorie really drove that process. Bottom line: I would say to somebody there really is nothing to lose contacting you all. If I was going to do any one thing differently, to me I would have been a little better off if I had known to stay in touch with Lorie a little bit more. Once I was contacted to do a phone interview...after the phone interview I came down to San Diego for an in person interview. It was really only after I had received an offer that I then got back in touch with Lorie. I think I might have been a little better off if I had stayed in touch with her more. Like [telling her] I have a phone interview coming up [and] we should confer...I think I would have been a little better off if I had more information going into those. I just didn't understand that it would have been important to keep in touch. Just because it was going so efficiently and it was run well, kind of remotely, so I thought it was just kind of on autopilot. That is the one [piece of] advice I would give to other people in my position.
