Question: A recruiter I was dealing with sent my resume, without my authorization or knowledge, to Law Firm X. At or around the same time, I answered a blind advertisement placed by that firm and received an interview. After the interview occurred, I mentioned it to the recruiter, and was told about the resume they submitted.
The recruiter then contacted someone at the firm they had dealt with in the past, told the firm about me, and I was subsequently rejected for the job. Is the recruiter liable for interference with prospective economic advantage or breach of contract (for contacting the law firm without authorization)? READ MORE >
Question: How do headhunters get the names of people they contact?
I am a third-year corporate associate with a large New York firm. I know that most members of my class are frequently contacted by headhunters. For some reason, I never have been. Should I be worried? READ MORE >
Question: I just passed the NY bar exam, have some limited legal experience and securities qualifications, but haven't had the luxury of a summer associate job with a major law firm. Would I be better off knocking on their doors one by one, or should I submit my resume to recruiters that work exclusively online? I know you have written that unless we have two years of experience with major firms, recruiters are not interested in looking at our resumes. Does that include online recruiters? READ MORE >

Is your recruiter really spending time to make your application stand out? What can you do to inspire them to invest in you? READ MORE >
Today's legal market is highly competitive, and though lateral moves are currently common, with few people working their whole lives at one firm, finding time to discover what positions exist, and doing so covertly so as not to alarm your current firm, may prove challenging, especially in respect to your work load. Meanwhile, legal recruiters keep making cold-calls. Should you screen them? Field them, even if you aren't interested in switching: you will at least gain insight into what you are worth on the market, and that grants leverage with your own firm. READ MORE >
Associates are busy people. In fact, many associates approach legal recruiters like me because they would like to be less busy, and are seeking an opportunity to help them meet that goal. Many attorneys have no idea how to conduct a job search, or to get information about law firms that may be a fit for them. Recruiters certainly possess information about firms, but keep in mind that our opinions about which firms are “good,” but these are colored by our own experiences practicing law. Only you can decide if a particular law firm is a fit for you. READ MORE >
