Every legal recruiter practices his/her own brand of recruiting, and for the most part, each style has merit. As the head of a national recruiting firm, I speak with legal recruiters both within and outside of my recruiting firm each day and have become quite familiar with various recruiting styles. When you are searching for a recruiter, it is important that you, too, are aware of the various recruiting styles, as your legal recruiter's particular recruiting style can often determine how effectively he/she can assist you in your job search.

Providing Insider Knowledge and Counseling
Professional search consultants receive their fees from the legal-hiring organizations that employ their candidates. Virtually every U.S. law firm with a staff of more than 20 attorneys asks recruiters to help them with their hiring needs. In fact, firms are often surprised when candidates approach them who aren't represented by a professional search consultant. They find it difficult to believe that some candidates think they can learn about the universe of opportunities available on their own. Considerable leg work is involved with finding a new position, and most candidates just don't have the time it takes to successfully handle all of the necessary tasks while holding down a full-time job.

Yes, if you want a search firm that's focused and instinctively knows the appropriate steps to take while conducting your job search.
Our recruiters are usually able to promptly locate excellent opportunities that produce the types of offers our candidates want to receive.

Rest assured that we do not simply scatter your resume all over the country, blindly hoping that we can find you a job in that manner. Our goal is to help you find the job you want, no matter how long it takes. Most of our candidates really do find jobs or receive attractive offers. READ MORE >
