Question

I am from Akron, OH, but I'd love to work in New York or Los Angeles. Do big-city firms only hire those whose past experience was gained in other large cities?

Answer


Big firms in Los Angeles and New York do prefer candidates who come from large cities; however, it is certainly not a requirement. There are plenty of excellent law firms across the country (including Akron) that offer excellent training to their associates. In fact, a big firm might be more willing to hire someone who has more practical, hands-on experience from a respected, but not as well known, law firm in a smaller town over a candidate coming from a large firm in a big city, who will require more training. We have been successful in placing candidates who have worked for small firms in small towns at highly regarded large law firms.
