Don't Mess with Legal Recruiting Coordinators

My experience has taught me that legal recruiting coordinators are almost always the most critical non-attorney positions in a law firm. I've sent this email to every hiring partner and legal recruiting coordinator I know. I'm sending it as a call to action to elevate your firm and the profession.
I have seen countless firms succeed by prioritizing this position and attracting and retaining the right people for it. I have also seen firms fail and struggle when they did not give this position the high level of respect it is entitled to and deserves. Incredibly, I've seen far too many law firms let people go from this position or cut it back when the market slows down (like it is now).
