She was good at keeping me updated. I liked the BCG online access. It was very organized and I could see all the places [where my application] was pending. I think that facilitated the process of the job searching. She showed me my current employer that I wouldn't have really known about or looked into had Jessica not reached out. Q. Where would we rank amongst other recruiting company's you used?A. Better than other recruiting companies because 1) it is easy to see the online system - it is very nicely laid out and I think that distinguishes you from other recruiting companies. I very much enjoyed that aspect of it. The follow up was good and Jessica was easy to get into contact with to ask any follow up questions to. ****Feedback from Michelle that we don't need to post with the testimonial, but for our consideration**** A way BCG can improve: if the recruiter could get more information with regards to the job application. Before interviews: find out what the day to day would look like and what specific area of law the candidate will be practicing in. Ask more questions to the hiring firm before purposing it to the candidate. She understands that sometimes the firm doesn't always share that info but if we could try to push and get a bit more.

Thank you for all of the great work you've done for me and my job search. I sincerely appreciate your help with my job search. Of all of the recruiters I have spoken and worked with in the past six months, you are certainly the most professional and impressive one I've worked with. You do a great job advocating for your clients and getting results. It has been a great pleasure working with you and I wish you the best.
I worked with my legal placement professional over the course of a few months and have to say that she was absolutely phenomenal. Her approach was very different from other recruiters I've worked with; she took the time to get to know my goals, my aspirations and my experiences and was really focused on finding the right role for me. After our initial call, she wasted no time in researching firms that offered what I was looking for and put together a plan specific for my unique situation. Once my details were submitted, interview requests followed shortly thereafter and I was fortunate to have my legal placement professional in my corner providing invaluable coaching and guidance at every stage of the interview process (having been in the legal industry for so long, I didn't think there would be so much to learn about interview techniques but as I learned from Nadeen, there is a right way and a wrong way to answer even the most-straight forward of interview questions!). My legal placement professional ensured that I was well prepared and able to maneuver successfully through this minefield, and as a result of her tactful negotiations, we secured multiple offers! It was a real pleasure working with my legal placement professional and I am fortunate to have found her. She was proactive, provided me with regular updates and always stayed a step ahead of me. She is very professional, knows the industry well and provided excellent feedback during each stage of the process. My legal placement professional exceeded my expectations in every respect and I would absolutely, without hesitation, recommend her to others.
My legal placement professional took the time to really get to know me. We spent 20-30 minutes initially and she made the effort to understand me. She also was available anytime I had a question. She would report back really promptly. Anytime I had a question, no question was too small, there was no question she couldn't answer and it made me feel really good about the process, that was one of my favorite things. She was very knowledgeable and it made me feel really comfortable. Another thing, I had a unique situation and instead of balking at it, she embraced it and said that we could figure it out, and she did. One great part was that I had a liaison between myself and the firm, which made it much more comfortable for me so that I didn't feel like I was bombarding them with questions. Having the recruiter do it, you know, she has all of the experience she knew how to deal with the firms, that is what she has done with her career, so that was nice as I didn't have to reach out directly about anything. BCG is much more attentive than other search firms, and when I search again, I will certainly be reaching out to BCG to see if my legal placement professional is available.

[My] favorite thing [about BCG] is my legal placement professional. She's a really, really nice person, straight shooter, and fun to talk to. She's an excellent person to be doing this kind of thing. I have worked with a bunch [of other recruiters]. I think you would be number one at this stage. I've worked with two other ones on this job search and you guys did more for me in terms of interviews and obviously you placed me. [There are] a lot of firms that you work with, so statistically there is good opportunity there.

I liked my legal placement professional. She helped me get this job, and I didn't realize that this was a position that was available.BCG was responsive, professional, and confident. I would say that you are the best recruiting firm. BCG was very helpful for me.
With working with my legal placement professional, she always kept me updated which was really nice because you are constantly wanting to know who is interested in you and who isn't, and she was incredibly responsive to my questions and was always sure to make sure I knew if there were any updates and if they wanted an interview, or if they weren't interested, that kind of thing. You guys were also able to find a lot of firms that I would have never been able to find on my own, and I think that working with you guys, it was easier to get in touch with the firms and be taken seriously rather than applying independently. BCG is the best legal recruiting service that I have used.

She was very transparent with me which was helpful. No BS. BCG has its finger on the pulse of the job market. There were a lot of jobs we applied for that I didn't find on any other job forums. It was a great experience. I would definitely return and use BCG and Carolina in the future.Q. Where would we rank amongst other recruiting company's?A. BCG was the primary recruiting service I used and I would definitely rank them the highest as well.
Honestly, the best part [about working with BCG] was getting a job in the end, especially when I had mostly stopped looking for myself. Carolina was willing to listen to what I was looking for and tried to match that with somewhere where I'd be happy. I'd said I wanted to do writing, and she shopped me around as a writer. I've only been at this new job for a few weeks, but it seems to be a much better fit than some of the places I was applying (and not getting). Even though it took a while, I still feel like you did a good job. A lot of that was the coronavirus, I'm sure, but taking the time to find a firm that was specifically looking for someone who was looking to write, not necessarily looking to get in a courtroom all of the time, was a big plus.Q. How did working with us make you job search easier?A. Well, for one, I didn't have to do the searching. But firms seem to reach out to you guys. Sometimes a middleman is a bad thing, but sometimes the middleman is a good facilitator, and that's what I felt happened here. I was also able to let someone else do the searching while I watched my son during the day.Q. Where would we rank/compare to other recruiting companies you may have used?A. Since you got me the job, I'd put you on top. Even without that, you didn't pigeonhole me into "temp" work just because your firm was divided into temp and permanent placement (and make it hard to get into the other group), so I'd still put you on top. My sample size isn't large, though.
BCG, and Carolina in particular, were essentially everything I would want in a recruiter. Prompt, responsive, checks in regularly, and always ready to hop on the phone for a call to discuss strategy, thought processes, and general concerns. Carolina was sure to make herself available whenever I wanted to talk, or even just vent! Further, her advice was always wise, on point, and well-considered.Potential employers were way more responsive when I went through BCG vs. when I applied individually. BCG also sent weekly updates on who was interested and who wasn't - providing much more visibility into the process than an applicant would otherwise have. I want to reiterate my sentiment that Carolina did a phenomenal job. Not only did she find me a great placement in the middle of a massive economic downturn - she also took the time to understand me and my goals, and was tremendously reassuring during a difficult and stressful time. I'm really quite impressed with BCG, and plan on recommending it to anyone I know who's job-seeking in the legal industry. Q. Where would we rank amongst other recruiting company's you may have used?A. The best. Other recruiters we always ready to collect my resume and "talk the talk," but only BCG actively and consistently stuck with me through the process - it's no surprise BCG found me an opportunity before anyone else did.
The best thing about working with Becca and BCG is that it was so organized. Daily or every other day or so I would get new firms I would go through. Often times the interview times were set up through her and she had it on point. There were several times that Becca did mock interviews with me which was very good. She was always very responsive and very helpful.[Using BCG] made my job search way easier. Before I would be applying individually to a firm here and there but being able to apply to 10-15 at a time made it made it way easier and things moved quicker. Becca and BCG were amazing!

Carolina was very responsive from start to finish. She promptly followed up to get my resume and materials to law firms searching to add an attorney in my areas of practice. She provided valuable suggestions on how to follow up with several firms that responded to her inquiries. She also followed up separately with law firms that showed an interest in me. All in all, it was a very positive experience working with Carolina and BCG.Carolina was very positive and upbeat about my prospects throughout the process. In these difficult times, this was especially appreciated. I would rate my experience with Carolina and BCG and superior to my experiences with other recruiters.
[BCG Attorney Search] responded to my correspondence very quickly. They seemed to be more proactive than everybody else I have worked with. I guess those are the two things that probably jump out at me. I felt like because you were so proactive I didn't have to be simultaneously looking. If a job hit the market [I trust that] you guys would find it. [BCG Attorney Search is] proactive, helpful, and timely. The best [legal recruiter] I've worked with. [You are] a great recruiting firm that actually seems interested in helping me find a job and not just fill[ing] a current vacancy.
I had worked with other recruiters, but I really felt like BCG took me on as more of a client and more serious in helping me find placement . I am relatively junior so I was concerned about getting a recruiter that couldn't handle it, but Sarah was very, very communicative throughout the whole process regarding what she was looking at, who she was speaking to, tactics for getting a job, so I felt that was really great. Not having to do the work and apply myself made it much easier and it was nice to have somebody identify concerns as well as positions that would be a good fit for me. You guys are certainly #1.

I got your gift in the mail. Thank you so much! That's very thoughtful of you.Things at Vedder are great. I am learning a lot about patent prosecution practice, and the people are very supportive. I'm definitely happy with the decision.I can't thank you enough for helping me through the whole process and for lending an ear when I needed someone to talk through it. I'm very grateful.
She was great because she had big law experience and her background wassimilar to mine so we met eye to eye on what I was looking for which makethe process a lot easier. She was really responsive and we hit it offimmediately. BCG's online format was good - you could see exactly what firmsyou applied to, it was very orderly. Becca was very easy to get in touchwith if I ever had any questions. The facilitation of information wasseamless which was the best part. The whole experience was fantastic! Beccaand BCG both get 10 out of 10.Q. Where would we rank amongst other recruiting company's?A. I worked with one other one and I would say that BCG was the best,specifically because Becca herself had such a great background and theymatched me up with someone appropriate. Also because of the orderliness ofthe online format - it was easier to gauge the process.Jared CoppotelliGeorgetown University Law Center, Class of 2015Placed at Winston & Strawn

Becca is amazing! She is great to work with. She was on top of everything and really knew her stuff. She got me interviews fast and I was placed quickly. Without a doubt, I would go to her again if I am ever in the market. She is incredible.
I think more than anything else, I really appreciated that it was effective. A couple of the factors that I appreciated were the transparent communication was great, being kept up on the status of things. Initial expectation management, a layout of what I could expect in terms of how long it would take for the firms to be responsive and what I might expect when they did respond. Having only done a job search with you guys, I don't know how it would have gone if I hadn't used you guys, but I can affirmatively say that having worked with BCG that it was effective and I didn't have to put active energy into it beyond clicking yes or no to submit to firms, based on the updated links that I was given, so from that aspect it was fairly time effective. A couple of other recruiters reached out to me while I was working with Becca, but also it was a matter of the fact that Becca had a fairly large portfolio of possible client's that she could recommend me to that she had worked with before which was more attractive than the others who would only provide on occasion, smaller firms. Having worked with you guys, I would recommend you to others.
My favorite thing about BCG was the summary sheets I got every week. Those helped me keep track of what was going on verses other recruiters that would say "I am applying to this position" and I would never hear back about it either way, and in some cases, I am not sure that they ever applied. This is my second time working with Becca and I have the confidence to know that the work was getting done and I didn't need to fret over every detail with her.
I wish to inform you that I got an offer from a Florida-based company and relocated there. Your guidance and tips regarding the job market certainly helped me to gain real insight and my current job. I was very impressed by your professionalism, and if I need help in the future, I would definitely use you again. I'm looking at a bright future thanks to you.
BCG Attorney search is a pleasure to work with.
