This article discusses legal recruiting coordinators, one of the most important roles in the legal profession and a profession that all attorneys need to understand if they are seeking positions in midsized to larger law firms. Not everything this article has to say is flattering.
There are over 25,000 legal recruiting coordinators that we are aware of at BCG Attorney Search and the majority of them are excellent; however, just as there are attorneys that are not great at their jobs, or legal recruiters not good at their jobs, not everyone is good at being a legal recruiting coordinator either. A bad attorney can impact the result a client gets in a case, just as a bad legal recruiter can hurt your job search chances—and it is not different with legal recruiting coordinators.
At BCG Attorney Search our goal is to tell it like it is. We are in a competitive profession and this requires understanding all of the players.
