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.
With working with Amanda, 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.
Nadeen 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 Nadeen is available.
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 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 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] 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.
[My] favorite thing [about BCG] is Jennifer. 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.
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.
BCG Attorney search is a pleasure to work with.
I worked with Nadeen 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 me 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 Nadeen 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!). Nadeen 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 Nadeen 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. Nadeen exceeded my expectations in every respect and I would absolutely, without hesitation, recommend her to others.
Hi Margaret,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.
I liked Jennifer McNeil. 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.
