I really appreciated the daily follow up and where things stand email every day. I thought that was really useful and helped me keep on top of things. I found her communication to be very clear so I was never confused by anything she said to me or wrote to me and I also really appreciated that she was willing to talk about the relative drawbacks about some of the places where I had offers. Some headhunters are like all these places are fantastic and you'll love them and it's not true, so I really appreciate honesty when weighing those types of offers and she may had heard things I hadn't heard, so that was really useful as well.Oh my gosh, I had been kind of marginally looking kind of half-heartedly but looking none the less for about 2 years and I had 2 offers within 4 weeks of working with Amanda. This was such a great experience.
With working with Amanda, she always kept me updated which was really nice because you are constantly wanting to know who is interested in you and who isn't, and she was incredibly responsive to my questions and was always sure to make sure I knew if there were any updates and if they wanted an interview, or if they weren't interested, that kind of thing. You guys were also able to find a lot of firms that I would have never been able to find on my own, and I think that working with you guys, it was easier to get in touch with the firms and be taken seriously rather than applying independently. BCG is the best legal recruiting service that I have used.
One of the best things about working with BCG is the access to law firms that BCG has. BCG seems to be working with a lot of the top tier law firms in the country. Very exciting for me that I got Associate. The other thing I really liked about working with BCG was working with Amanda Mindlin. She has been the person I have been in contact with, in terms of just working with BCG. She has been really great. There are a few things about working with BCG that made my job search easier. Just knowing which firms are looking. A lot of firms are not going to post things on job boards. They may just reach out to a search firm like BCG for help, so that was one of the things that made it easier for sure. Another thing that helped was getting advice, interview advice, and being able to walk through with Amanda, just what the firms like to hear, what they don't like to hear, interview questions, thank you emails, things like that. BCG is one of the best legal recruiting firms.
Responsiveness and knowledge of the market were my favorite things about working with my recruiter. It made my search easier because it opened up some possibilities that I hadn't thought of on my own. BCG is at the top of my list for working with a legal recruiter.
I really appreciate that BCG kept me up to date on the openings and found those for me and tried to give me a quick summary of what those entailed. It really saved me a lot of time because I didn't have to look at different job boards to keep myself updated because someone else was doing that for me. BCG Attorney search is #1.
So I worked with Amanda, and she was great. I had a friend who was looking for a firm at the same time as me and I feel like his recruiter was a little pushy with him and we both had specific goals, and wanted to transition in to a field of law that we are not in right now. I feel like Amanda really listened to me in that respect and didn't try to push me toward any firm regardless of whether or not they had an active practice in the area of law that I would like to start practicing in. While my colleague who was working with a different recruiting firm had a very different experience where he felt like he was being pushed toward every and any firm and his recruiter wasn't really listening to what he wanted. I spoke with Amanda and told her what my goals were and provided her with my resume and transcripts, and she kind of just took it from there. She reached out to the all firms that I said okay to. It was very easy and I didn't really have to do anything. I have worked with one other recruiting company at first, and BCG was much better!
