Lorie Ball was fantastic. I can easily say she was the best recruiter I have worked with, although I have not worked with many. Probably helps that she is an attorney herself. Very communicative and had great insights that helped me land what looks like will not only be a great job, but a great job for me specifically. I'd recommend her without reservation.
I thought that the regular updates really helped and I'd say that Romina was really consistent with her reaching out in terms of pushing things forward. I thought that helped made it more efficient and I thought it was a good way to keep things up to date and move things forward in terms of getting interviews and screeners and even updating my materials. I would say that BCG is at the top of my list for recruiters and certainly number one.
I liked that BCG assigned me a personal recruiter who I had a conversation with. That was really nice and I liked the direct contact with Harrison Barnes, that made me feel appreciated. I feel really appreciated with one on one time. I had really great conversations with the recruiters that I worked with and I thought that they were excellent. They didn't make any mistakes and were excellent.
Lorie was very attentive and very much aware of what I wanted, what I didn't want, she was casting a wide net, but she took into account what I was really looking for so I really appreciated that instead of doing the mass resume thing. I like that she was really responsive and one of the things I really appreciated about working with her is that she was very involved, I had issues like when should I send my notice and so on and she basically guided me through the whole thing and is still guiding me so I really appreciated that about working with her. First of all, BCG allowed me to know about opportunities that I wouldn't have known about otherwise, so that presented more opportunities than I would have found on my own. Second of all, Lorie took care of everything in terms of the resume, cover letter and follow up that meant that I didn't have to do anything but approve or disapprove the jobs and that basically took care of the whole thing. BCG is definitely at the very top of my list of recruiters.
I liked how once your registered to the website you can see positions that were open that matched my criteria, which offices and cities they were in, so that was pretty easy. It showed my resume was at some firm, like a sub status. Like if it was pending, if I had an interview if they rejected me or haven't yet, so that was very convenient. Carleen was very good about sending email communications and she was very responsive. It seems with other recruiters, it took several recruiters to cover such a big area, but with BCG, it was very easy and very centralized and they allowed me to search all of the locations, 3 states, with one centralized database. So it doesn't get more efficient than that. I didn't have to worry about reaching out to a recruiter in every single different city I may be interested in. I basically just submitted my criteria to the database and it automatically went to Carleen and she updated me right away on positions and it was very efficient that way. Honestly, in my experience, the service that was provided was basically in its own category. It's the most comprehensive enterprise solution and no other service I have worked with even came close. I was confused how to go about my job search and how to get the ball rolling, but once I made the decision to look for a job, I didn't just want to sit on my hands and wait for recruiters to reach out to me, I decided I wanted to get the ball rolling, so I went online and Googled Legal Recruiters and BCG was the top result. I registered and within a day or so, I was speaking with Harrison Barnes on the phone and we got the process started. I have never had the kind of access to information that I did with the whole database with BCG.
I really appreciated the resources that [Lorie and BCG] provided through literature and thought it was extremely helpful during my job search. [Lorie] also gave me another voice to bounce ideas off of, kind of an objective 3rd party in a way. I have never worked with any other recruiters but my experience with [Lorie and BCG] was great.
Lorie was extremely personable and she was easy to relate to and easy to talk to. BCG has all of the down low on legal jobs which makes the job search easier. BCG is my favorite recruiter. You guys got me the job I just got!
[One of my favorite things about working with Romina and BCG were] the regular weekly emails that I could approve and not approve. I liked that it generated an automated response that [Romina] got it and [was] working on it and submitting [me], so that was a really nice feature. It makes you feel like you are moving forward. I didn't really have to do much, BCG did everything which, when you are a practicing attorney, you really need because there are so many deadlines that you are working with professionally, so for me, it made it really simple. [Romina and BCG] did a really great job!
[BCG was] very pro-active. I thought [they had] expansive thinking as far as different options, and [I appreciated the] constant updates. [BCG made my job search easier because] I always knew what the status was so I didn't have to call somebody and ask them what's going on. I thought you guys were the best [recruiting company I've worked with].
[My favorite thing about BCG was] the responsiveness. Generally speaking, the person I worked with was always responsive to my emails; there were [also] pretty regular texts about new employment opportunities. [The word that comes to mind when I think of BCG is] relief that there is someone else to help you. I have only worked with one other [recruiting firm] and I would put you ahead of [them]. I just gave BCG's information to a colleague of mine who is interested in changing firms. I told her you guys were responsive, you guys have a lot of different opportunities, and that you kept in pretty regular contact.
I thought your online system and being able to see everything was very helpful. A lot of other people don't have that. You certainly had the most opportunities and had them the quickest. There were things you would send to me that another recruiter would send to me two weeks later. [BCG Attorney Search is] efficient, proactive, and organized. [You are] certainly in the top tier. You would be my go to recommend for anyone. If you need the company that has the most breadth and is going to send you the most options then I would go with you.
I liked being able to approve the law firms for application [online]. [Working with BCG] sort of took the burden off of me from trying to determine what would be the best firms to apply to [and] trying to search through a lot of different websites. It just made the whole thing easier. [When I think of BCG the first words that come to mind are] efficient, compassionate, and competent. I would have to say you're the best because you actually got me a job. You guys are a great resource for someone who is trying to do a job search in a new location and doesn't really [have a lot] of contacts in an area.
[My favorite thing about BCG Attorney Search was] the weekly emails. I didn't have to go searching for open positions, you did that. It was a good experience [working with BCG]. I have already referred other people. I had a good experience.
[My favorite thing about working with BCG Attorney Search is] that I ended up getting a job. [BCG Attorney Search] took care of most of the sending out the resume stuff. [BCG is] proactive [and] responsive. I actually referred a peer of mine to you guys. You guys were really on the ball in terms of finding places and sending out resumes.
[The best part of working with BCG is] the interface in terms of selecting or looking for jobs. It's easy to deal with and it's convenient. I could keep working while it was going on; I think that was the biggest thing. It made juggling looking for a job and continuing to work a job workable. [BCG is] very helpful and proactive. Definitely use them for your job search.
I think the list of firms available was helpful. The text message follow ups were helpful too. [Working with BCG made my job easier because] you found me places to interview at. [BCG was] thorough, helpful, [and] responsive. [I would rank BCG] at or near the top [compared to other recruiting companies I have worked with]. [BCG is] a good recruiting company.
[My favorite things about working with BCG were] the regular weekly updates and information. Other people, you contact them and you don't hear back from them for weeks. [BCG] basically went out and found the opportunities for me, in every way, rather than me going out and having to do all the work. [BCG was] helpful. You're the only ones that got me an opportunity, so [I would rank you] first [compared to other recruiters]. [I would describe BCG as] useful, helpful, [and] a company that helped me find what I needed and what I was looking for.
[Working with BCG] was very easy. I worked with Lorie because I had responded to some listings online and she got right in touch with me. She did a lot of the work and just kept me in the loop. It was very helpful. I felt confident that she was looking at listings that I probably didn't have access to...when I accepted an offer it did make me confident that I was accepting a good offer. I felt confident that I wasn't leaving anything on the table that I would have found otherwise. That gave me some confidence too. I would say [BCG is] helpful. I guess the second word I would think of is quick because it really wasn't long after I got in touch with Lorie that I ended up with an interview and then an offer. So that was great. As far as a third one, I guess efficient. I never actually met Lorie in person, we talked on the phone [and] we emailed. But I really didn't have to put a whole lot of time into the relationship. I had a positive experience working with you all, I ended up with a result that I'm very pleased with and I didn't really have to do a lot to maintain that relationship. Lorie really drove that process. Bottom line: I would say to somebody there really is nothing to lose contacting you all. If I was going to do any one thing differently, to me I would have been a little better off if I had known to stay in touch with Lorie a little bit more. Once I was contacted to do a phone interview...after the phone interview I came down to San Diego for an in person interview. It was really only after I had received an offer that I then got back in touch with Lorie. I think I might have been a little better off if I had stayed in touch with her more. Like [telling her] I have a phone interview coming up [and] we should confer...I think I would have been a little better off if I had more information going into those. I just didn't understand that it would have been important to keep in touch. Just because it was going so efficiently and it was run well, kind of remotely, so I thought it was just kind of on autopilot. That is the one [piece of] advice I would give to other people in my position.
It is with great pleasure that I can say that I have a job I love. BCG Attorney Search and my recruiter, Lynn, have a great role to play in this. Thank you guys!
Lynn and Brian are an incredible, very effective team! They moved the process along quickly and were extremely responsive to all my questions at every stage. Brian worked to understand my personal and professional goals in order to best align my interests with opportunities available in the current market. Lynn took the lead in coordinating all [of the] logistics which enabled me to focus on my other obligations, researching firms and preparing for interviews. They also remained extremely involved after I had received offers, providing feedback that helped me make the right decision and continuing to provide support by coordinating between firms. I am most grateful for their expertise and professionalism. In addition, they are a very personable team and a pleasure to work with.
[BCG] made it easy to review potential employers, [and it was an] easy process. I got interviews with employers I wouldn't have otherwise considered or known about. [BCG is] simple and efficient. [BCG ranks] first [compared to other search firms]. [BCG is] simple and effective.
[My favorite things about BCG were their] professionalism in the recruiter that I worked with and their diligence in assisting with my job search. They have contacts with firms that I would not have otherwise been able to have contact with. [BCG is] professional, diligent, and helpful. [BCG is] someone that [others] should reach out to if they are looking for a change in position.
Hi Harrison, I am gainfully employed at the moment. I am not looking for a new job. Thank you and I enjoyed working with your recruiters previously.
It was really easy to work with [BCG Attorney Search]. I was able to get a wide variety of options that I may not have found otherwise. [BCG is] helpful [and] results oriented. It would definitely be worth reaching out and seeing if they could help you.
I liked that you gave me a big list of firms [and] that I could check the ones I wanted [and uncheck] the ones I didn't want. I liked that you contacted me a lot. I worked a lot via text. That was easy for me to do discretely at work. I liked being constantly updated. When I had two offers I really appreciated that you [did] some negotiating for me between the two. It made it easier because I didn't feel like I had to spend all this time running through LinkedIn or Indeed or job sites. It made my search easier because it's nice when I see a big list of firms that potentially might have openings because [then] I get an idea of who's looking [and] what the market [is] like right now. And then of course everything was coordinated for me. So I could spend more time at my current job or just doing other things rather than just spending all my time emailing back and forth with HR management at various firms. I would say [BCG is] effective, friendly, and positive. I have worked with a couple recruiting companies and I would rank you as number one. I would describe you as having a really wide range. [You are] very aggressive in getting results, being very results oriented. I would [also] say [you are] modern and innovative. [You] clearly approach recruiting in a way that I think makes a lot of sense and is targeted to get results.
I remember that Harrison Barnes called me pretty soon after I reached out to him, or pretty soon after we agreed to work together and talked to me over the phone. That was good. [You have] all the resources and connections that are required to put you into the circle of firms that I would expect to be shopped to. That was definitely a positive thing.
I got a job. You presented me with law firms I didn't think about previously. [The first things that come to mind when I think of BCG Attorney Search are] good follow up, and you were pretty thorough in providing law firms, [as well as] looking through all the law firms that are out and about. [I would rank your firm] at the top. I thought you did a good job. I would recommend you guys.
[My favorite part about working with BCG Attorney Search was] the follow up, and not having to be the one contacting the recruiter. The recruiter went out and did the leg work for me, and found the places that were hiring that were in the salary range and locations I was interested in. [BCG is] friendly, thorough, and prompt. You guys are thorough and you're prompt and you're always following through on something. [You] facilitate [a] job search and make it a lot easier.
I thought that the people that I worked with were very supportive. I worked primarily with Carleen Trapp and I really appreciated that she was in constant contact. It was very accommodating to my schedule, which at times could be kind of difficult. She was pretty encouraging yet realistic along the way. It basically made my job search. I really didn't have to do anything else other than just provide some necessary information about myself, including my resume. Basically Carleen handled it from there and she was great. [BCG was] helpful and encouraging. I would say you got the job done. This is a very professional organization. They basically facilitated the entire process so I would recommend them.
I guess that whenever I had any questions, or I wanted to talk to somebody about a potential interview or something Romina, who was helping me, would always return a call, a text, or an email almost immediately. It was so easy to stay in touch with her, and I felt like she was very, very focused on helping me and was always available. I basically just sent in my resume and transcript, and she had interviews for me the next week. So I didn't have to do cover letters, and I didn't have to research what firms were looking for anyone. It very much simplified it. [I would describe BCG Attorney Search as] efficient, available, and simplifying. In the future, I would go back to you guys. I wouldn't try out someone else. I would highly recommend [you]. [BCG] will make you feel like you are the only clients and they will work tirelessly to get you in a placement that works for you.
I enjoyed the responsiveness. I was licensed in a different state and BCG helped me get a job in a different jurisdiction. I would say that whether [it was] a phone call or an email BCG was very quick to respond. It made it easier because you could really bounce ideas off the BCG individual, sort of as an intermediary. No question was really out of line or too dumb or could be misconstrued any which way. It was nice to have that buffer. [I would describe BCG as] responsive, diligent, and loyal. I have worked with others, [and BCG is] among the best. I worked with two other ones before and so I had come into working with BCG jaded about recruiting services. The others ones were not giving me the type of opportunity that I had merited and BCG was able to obtain many interviews for me. I would describe BCG as a place where you should get with them early on and stick with them. The hiring process is unknown [territory] but BCG will be there to help you navigate the uncharted waters of [your] job search.
[My favorite thing about working with BCG Attorney Search was] that there was a level of contact every week. I have worked with other recruiters where basically you talk with them once and then you don't hear from them. So it was very nice that the recruiter that I worked with, Carleen, reached out to me at least once a week. I didn't have to do anything, it was great. She sent me the firms, I elected whether or not to put my hat in the ring and she drafted the cover letter. I was really able to sit back relax and wait and see what happened. [The first three words that come to mind when I think of BCG Attorney Search are] helpful, professional, and successful. As of right now, [you are the] best [legal recruiting firm] I have worked with. [I would tell someone] that if they are looking for a legal job and if they would like to work with a recruiter I highly recommend they get in touch with you.
I thought the company was very professional and prompt, and made themselves available, particularly Paul, the representative I worked with. I felt like it gave me a better insight into how the employers were thinking about my resume. Particularly the insight that Paul got when he was working with hiring directors. He was able to share with me from time to time about their level of interest in my application that was helpful. It was also helpful to know a little more about market trends I didn't have a lot of clarity into otherwise. [BCG is] professional, responsive, [and] competent. I would recommend you. You did the job that I was hoping you would do for me very well. I understood the balancing act that you have to do between supporting the needs of the applicants and employers and I thought you handled that well.
[One of my favorite things about working with BCG Attorney Search was] the convenience. I liked the online system for managing submissions and making approvals. I liked that everything was collected for me in one place. [I] like[d] getting that weekly report, that's been very helpful. It has some indication of progress every week. It's very cool I think. [BCG Attorney Search is] very professional, efficient and easy. You're definitely one of the top [legal recruiting companies]. I would say that if [someone is] looking to downsize their search, [that] you know get access to pretty much all the publicly available job postings out there. They should consider signing up with BCG and getting in touch with one of their recruiters.
I thought you were very responsive. I spoke with Harrison and he listened to my needs and found opportunities that I thought were available. I was looking at Albany, [which is] a fairly small market. He found me the opportunity I wanted. It turned out that I left that firm and went back to my old firm after realizing that I am better suited as a capital markets lawyer at a large law firm. I thought that you did a great job. [Working with you made my job easier because] you found me the opportunity that I eventually accepted. You presented me with a host of options. I was a little bit limited in my desired geography. I always knew there were going to be limited opportunities; I think you found the maximum number of opportunities that were out there. It was extremely helpful. I would recommend you. I think you do listen to what each candidate is looking for and I think you are fairly aggressive in going out and find out what's available and trying to make a proper match. I would definitely recommend you.
[Working with BCG Attorney Search] was real easy. It was very simple for me. [One of my favorite things was the] ease of communication. It opened a door to an opportunity that wouldn't have otherwise been open. [Working with BCG made my job search easier because of the] ease of communication, available opportunities, and success, because we found a placement. I [was] successful in [my] job search using BCG.
I liked that you had updates as to application views, whether you were under consideration and stuff like that. I liked the fact that you were very transparent with who was looking at the applications, what firms [were] considering [you, and] whether they passed on you or not. I think having that made it a lot easier. Also, the fact that you could just click what firms you wanted to be applied to and which ones you didn't [was helpful]. I liked everything [about working with BCG]. You guys did everything [to make my job search easier]. [Working with BCG] made [my job search] seem significantly easier and you guys also had really good ins to a lot of firms. The firm I ended up with, that position was not [listed] online. I don't know how you guys made the connection, but I know you made it. So definitely that was a big part for sure. [I would describe BCG as] responsive, transparent, and helpful. [BCG is] way better [than other recruiting firms]. I had one that actually just randomly dropped me because she realized I was a federal law clerk. You guys were definitely more personal and professional. I would strongly recommend you guys, for sure. And make sure Carleen gets really good reviews because she's fantastic.
Hi Harrison, I wanted to thank you for reaching out by text this afternoon. Status quo for the most part on my end at the moment, but I also wanted to let you know how much I appreciate you and your team keeping me up to date about new opportunities. I've spoken with other recruiters who essentially have disappeared after an initial conversation, so the attentiveness and organized approach that you and your colleagues have shown has meant a lot to me. I look forward to the status report emails and notifications of new listings, and I'm really pleased to be working with your firm. I will definitely recommend you to any friends and colleagues who are searching or thinking about searching.All the best,
The background materials that they [BCG Attorney Search] provided for [my] job search were very helpful. You had a specific position posted that was very helpful to me. [BCG Attorney Search is] helpful, thorough and friendly.
I think that in particular Carleen was very responsive. She would communicate to me almost on a daily basis any developments. If I had concerns she would usually respond within a few minutes. It was also helpful to me that we did some on the phone interview practice and counseling. I think that made a difference in my interview that ultimately led to me getting the job that I have now.[Working with BCG] certainly cut out a lot of the leg work that I would have had to do on my own. I think it also helped to have a sort of professional middle person or institution communicating with the HR department in various firms which I think have their own industry wide way of communicating.I would describe BCG Attorney Search as aggressive and receptive.I would recommend what your firm has to offer.
[BCG] essentially handled everything, so it was really low stress on my end.I don't think I would have been able to find the opportunity on my own, honestly. So I think that was the most invaluable part, just becoming aware [of that].[BCG is] helpful and professional.I have already recommended [BCG Attorney Search] to friends. I [would say you are] highly recommendable and helpful.
[The] status update was helpful to have, and you were pretty accessible over the phone. Carleen was really easy to work with which was great. You guys did most of it [my job search] for me so that was helpful. [I also] like[d] the constant updates with firms and not having to look too much at positions. I would describe you guys as provid[ing] a pretty broad search for us ... you guys are connected with a lot of different firms.
BCG has recruiters that make up a fantastic team. They helped guide me through the entire job search and had great tips, especially about interviewing. I was completely satisfied with my experience. If the need arose, I would definitely use them again. They were insightful, attentive, and extremely pleasant to work with. I highly recommend them.
My favorite thing about working with BCG was Christina Brown, the recruiter I was working with. She was very invested in my search and got to know me in a personal, individual way. I liked the updates that you guys provided regularly.Working with BCG made my job easier in three ways. One is that it would be very, very hard to reach out and connect with all the various law firms that are out there. Two, even if you are able to do that, it's hard to keep track of the various markets for active needs as they come up. But it seemed like it was really a process that was occurring in real time. You guys kept up with what was happening in firms. That's how I ended getting up one of the two offers that I got. It was a firm that needed something quickly, it was something that your office understood, and then it got to my recruiter and she called me right away. The third way is that with Christina Brown, my recruiter, she was very helpful because she got to know me as a person and as a candidate. She was then able to give me some advice and some perspective on how to consider all of the options that I ultimately had. She also helped to prepare me for each step in the process and provided great counseling.I had a really good recruiter who placed me where I am now, before I came to you guys, and then later on she disappeared. A few years later when I needed her help, she was involved with my company and transitioning people out. So it left me with a feeling that she was attentive and good when I was somebody that she could benefit from, but when she figured she couldn't she disappeared. That was very disappointing. So I would rank you as a ten. It's the best relationship I've had with a recruiting firm in every way.I would describe BCG as very helpful, because of your search process. You cast a wide net and have access to all the leads that are out there. So I think your company is something attorneys should definitely consider. You guys have personal interest and attention that I experienced with my recruiter. I've actually recommended you to people already. I feel very positive about my entire experience.
BCG was super responsive and had great leads. I was kind of working on my own for a while, trying to find a few things. After working with BCG the number of firms and opportunities I had to get an in to the interview process was much [higher and] quicker. I enjoyed it quite a bit. BCG is highly professional. So far you are the best [recruiting firm] I've worked with. I would definitely recommend [you].
I liked the weekly updates that I got, and I liked that Christina was always very available. She would text me or email me, was always pretty easy to get a hold of, and made herself available even on the weekends. It was easier to have someone else take care of it, and I knew she would always check in. She was willing to do as much or as little as I wanted her to, so that was really good. You are very helpful and I like the way your system is set up. I would definitely recommend you to a friend.
You work very hard and do an excellent job. After meeting with you, I came home and told my significant other that I wish that I had worked with you when I left my former firm. At the time, I thought all legal recruiters were essentially the same. I am pleasantly surprised that I was wrong. Thanks again!
I prefer to work with you because I believe you are a real professional in this field. The cover letter you drafted is really impressive.
I deeply appreciate the time that you spent helping me with my job hunting & revising my resume, coaching me before the interview, providing advice on handling the offer. I was especially impressed with your advice on how to handle the job offer with [law firm] & it was excellent. Throughout the process, you were never overbearing or pushy& you were supportive and patient, and you let me make my own decisions at my own pace. Usually I feel quite alone when I'm interviewing, but not so when you were working with me. (Sorry, I don't mean to gush, but I'm being sincere.) Whenever any of my colleagues are looking for a new position, I always recommend you, telling them that you are the best recruiter I have ever worked with.
I was just notified yesterday that Fenwick is inviting me for a phone interview. It's all thanks to my California recruiter. I am extremely grateful for their help (and the help of the BCG team in general) and will forever be in their debt.
My recruiter was quite knowledgeable about the current state of the field for chemistry patent agents. He helped me gauge interest level for applicants with credentials similar to mine, and allowed me to direct my focus on the best potential positions. He was also helpful in my interview preparations.
My recruiters make a fantastic team. They helped guide me through the entire job search and had great tips, especially about interviewing. I was completely satisfied with my experience. If the need arose, I would definitely use them again. They were insightful, attentive, and extremely pleasant to work with. I highly recommend them.
I wanted to take a moment to provide you with a quick update on my end. A couple of weeks ago, I accepted an offer to join the Los Angeles office of Lewis Brisbois as a member of their litigation team in their healthcare and elder law practice group. Brian, you have been the most professional and courteous recruiter I have dealt with, and I look forward to keeping in very close touch.
My recruiter recently worked with me when I decided to change firms, and was a terrific resource throughout the whole process. My recruiter worked long hours to make sure that I was exposed to as many quality opportunities as possible and always was available for advice or to answer any questions I had. I wouldn't be at my wonderful new firm without my California recruiter's help and dedication! My recruiter is fantastic.
I would highly recommend working with my Los Angeles recruiter. My recruiter is professional, responsive, and supportive.
My recruiter in Los Angeles is an effective and results-oriented professional. Responsive, creative, diligent, and connected, my recruiter successfully secured a number of interviews for me. My recruiter also thoroughly prepared me for interviews, tailored their suggestions to my strengths and background, and helped me be effective and strategic in the job search process. I recommend my recruiter without reservation.
My Los Angeles recruiter was extremely helpful in my career search. Unlike a lot of other recruiters, I felt like my recruiter was committed to helping me find the right position that would be a good fit, rather than just pushing me towards any attorney opening. My recruiter was very patient and responsive whenever I reached out with questions or concerns. My recruiter is an excellent recruiter and I will recommend them to any friends or colleagues looking for a new opportunity in the legal field.
In May 2011 I sent an inquiry to BCG Attorney Search indicating my desire to find new employment as a litigation associate. I was promptly contacted by my Los Angeles recruiter, and couldn't have been luckier. My recruiter worked tirelessly to help me find the right firm, counseled me through the interview process and was a wonderful sounding board for me to ask questions about the recruiting/interview process and legal market. I found my recruiter to be responsive, knowledgeable and professional, but also personable and friendly, which is absolutely critical because I was making a large life decision by changing jobs. One very special attribute about my recruiter that I found refreshing was the fact that they were not pushy, as many recruiters can be. My recruiter understood and respected the traits that I was looking for in a firm, and did not try to push me into the wrong placement just so they could make a commission. I highly recommend my recruiter, and would use them again in the future if the need ever arises.
My Los Angeles recruiter and I worked together for over a year to find me just the right position to move into. Despite looking for work in a down economy, and trying to make the difficult move from a small firm back into big law, my recruiter was persistent and encouraging through it all. A handful of job offers later, and I finally found the right one. Thanks for all the hard work!
Harrison, ''I really appreciate your daily columns. After being stressed out about being unemployed since February, I just accepted a wonderful offer that I am really excited about by following your advice. Thank you so much, and I want you to know that your efforts have a concrete effect on people's lives."
Dear Harrison, Thank you for your email below, which is extremely helpful. I didn't expect that you can be so kind as to show me the right path for the start of my career. This attests to the high ethinical standard and professionalism of you and your firm. I will try to spread the good words about your firm among my peers in my future career and hopefully we can cooperate somewhere down the road. Thank you again.
Good information for these in uncertain times you might need when the unthinkable happens and you are now unemployed. Respect the process, it matters. In law school the professors called "the process" "learning to think like a lawyer"
Your essays show a rare level of maturity, insight and professionalism that is missing too often from the business of law. Thanks for sharing them.
Exceedingly good life information for everyone.
You've got great stories. Thank you for sharing them, they're really helpful, not just for my law search, but for life and dealing with people.
I cannot overstate how pleased I am with the work that Claudia provided and the results she helped me obtain. Unlike previous experience I've had with other recruiters, Claudia was able to focus my job search to only those firms where there was a good fit between what they were looking for and what I was looking for. She also provided invaluable advice as to how to position myself and my background for maximum effectiveness, whether by resume or in the interview itself. Finally, the "moral support" that Claudia was happy to provide was a bonus very much appreciated. In short, I landed the job I wanted, and I felt better throughout the whole process as a result of working with Claudia, too. I would recommend her to anybody thinking about a new job.
My recruiter in Los Angeles was absolutely wonderful. I had a difficult time finding a job because of my focus in my practice area. A lot of recruiters gave up on me. They would get very excited, but after a few weeks or months they would have trouble placing me and they would give up. And my recruiter did not. My recruiter was interested in me and she was very determined. My recruiter was able to get me interviews at great firms. They stuck with me until we found a placement, a good home for me. And I really appreciated that. Working with BCG opened a lot of doors for me, because even though I was searching for jobs myself and applying, I might not have seen a lot of the job postings. Also, I was not able to reach the recruiting officers at law firms. Having my recruiter advocate on my behalf and check on the status of my submission was really helpful. I would not have been able to do that myself. I would highly recommend BCG.
Hi Christina,I have cleared conflicts and am going to move forward at Downey Brand. I will inform Murphy Austin. You can let the other firms know. Thank you so much for your help. It's clear that you're great at your job. If I know of anyone looking to make a move, I'll surely refer them to you.Thanks again,
Very responsive, obviously successful, and Harrison really listened to what was looking for as well.
The responsiveness, whether it was by email or by phone call. And then keeping on track of the schedule of the interviews I had. I would always get text messages beforehand. The responsiveness was very good.
My most favorite thing is that I got a job through BCG. I liked that I had a good introductory call with Harrison. We had a good discussion about my background and interests which I thought was helpful. I had mock interviews that were informal with Harrison and some other people too. I thought that was good as well.BCG Attorney Search made it easier because I didn't have to send my resume out to a bunch of firms. I just sent it to BCG and through you I was able to make contact with some firms. So that was very helpful.Thinking about BCG brings back happy memories of getting the job I wanted.I would say you are very helpful, and that you are different than some other search firms in that you try to find out what the best fit is for each person. You don't seem like the type of firm that just send out someone's resume to one hundred different firms and hoping that something sticks. You see what would be the best fit on both ends. You try to cater to the individual circumstances of each person.
I started working with Claudia She was really good. She kind of just jumped in and said, "Can I help you? Can we talk about this? What can we do? What are you thinking about?" I had some other offers that were through a different recruiter. Of course she emphasized the Milbank offer, but I believed what she said when she compared them, and I appreciated her advice. She also was open, and she said do you need help on neighborhoods and moving and all that stuff. I feel like she has handled this a lot. She knows what's going to happen. I debated asking for a signing bonus, since I had multiple offers. She then contacted Milbank and their recruiter and said would this be bad? We ended up finding a good way to get me a litter better deal than the original first offer. So I really appreciated her, her knowledge, and knowing how best to approach that and giving me advice on what and what would not be a good ideaa nd then I got an offer, which was amazing.As far as getting a little bit better offer I think that was something Claudia was able to help, and I'm not sure I would have been able to do myself. It was nice to kind of have the in-between, for her to talk to their recruitment staff, so I didn't have to directly ask a partner, just to kind of test the waters. So I think that was where it was more helpful than had I been on my own.The first three words that come to mind when I think of BCG Attorney Search are big, opportunity, and overall knowledgeable.I would describe it as full of experience and opportunities. Keeping things confidential, like as you will too. So if you reach out, make sure both sides are confidential and I think that is respected. I like that. I would say there are a lot of people, I think I had six or seven people from BCG at one time or another connect with me on LinkedIn within about a three month span. I would say they are not all created equal. I would say talk to, and look at background and experience, before you decide which person you want to be your primary contact.
I really liked the weekly report that was sent. I really liked that Christina text messaged me and she was really good at checking in and following up on the interviews. It made it 100 percent easier; I found a job in no time. I did not have to write thank you letters, I didn't have to be hunting around. A lot of the jobs aren't posted anywhere. The first three words that come to mind when I think of BCG are helpful, experienced, and productive. BCG is at the top of the list when I think of recruiters. If I was recommending you to others I would tell them that that you are a recruiting firm and that you work really hard to get people jobs. You contact them, and talk with them about their resume and what they want and what they are looking for. You are really good at getting someone a position that they want.
Today is my first day at KTS. It looks like I'll do well here, and Dennis and Larry seem really cool and should be great to work for. Thank you so much again for helping me find this job - it was a pleasure working with you and I appreciate all of your efforts to get me placed! Please keep me in your "rolodex" Hope to cross paths again. Have a good week.
I worked with Claudia and I just really liked her. She actually still keeps in touch. It seems like it was really about finding the right fit, and even if she wasn't the right fit she would still be there for me, so I really like her.Working with BCG made it so I didn't really have to do much in terms of following up. She gave me advice on that. She let me know what was out there, and then she handled a lot of the negotiation process. So I didn't have to deal with that directly, which is good when you are working from home.The first three words that come to mind when I think of BCG are friendly, reliable, and helpful.I have had a better experience with my recruiter than many other people that I know. I would definitely recommend Claudia. Honestly I would just say that she is fantastic to work with and a really great person. You really need to trust the person that you are working with, especially since they make commission off of placing you. So if you don't really like or trust the person, there isn't much of an incentive to believe they have your best interest at heart. That's probably why I chose Claudia.
You guys had a lot of institutional knowledge regarding the field of law, especially big law, and making a lateral move. Kind of how to make yourself more marketable and things like that. A lot of that was actually really on point and really useful and helpful. I didn't really have a great mentor or contact kind in the location I was trying to move to, as I was trying to make a move to Houston. I didn't have anyone to bounce things of off and get feedback from. So you guys were really, really helpful on that.You guys really did take everything off of my plate, in terms of coordinating everything. I've worked with recruiters in the past who really didn't handle everything. In terms of getting my resume out there, facilitating interviews, and coordinating things you guys did all that for me and I really appreciated that. It allowed me to focus on my job.I would describe BCG as capable, efficient, and professional. I would rank BCG as number one. You guys were honest with me and Harrison was as well. I appreciated that he took the time to work with me.I think one of the biggest things I found out was how Harrison was. That was a big thing for me, because so many recruiters are just constantly out there trying to generate candidates. And while they are all very complimentary of me, all they have seen is my file on the firm website. Harrison was complimentary of me once when he reviewed my bio, but then after he had reviewed my resume and we had spoked a couple of times, I actually thought he was giving me honest feedback about things that I said, what the reality of me getting a job was in the market, and what my options were in the market. He also talked about what mattered and what didn't, kind of where I fit in based on the law school I went to, things like that. And that is really valuable, because you get so many calls and so many emails as an attorney at a large law firm about this stuff. Most of it's just fishing. So to have somebody that actually paid attention, once I gave him my information, and thought about it and gave me honest feedback was really valuable.
My favorite thing was working with Christina at BCG. She was very responsive with questions that I had and she was willing to spend time working on the search efforts for me.Working with BCG definitely made my job search easier for me, because I didn't have a lot of time to conduct a job search while I was at my current position. Christina and BCG really did a lot of the work for me here. I am appreciative and grateful for being able to work with everyone there. Your company is very helpful and they intend to see the entire process through and get results.
BCG got me a job that I still like. The recruiter I worked with was a good fit for me. I have good feelings about BCG. I referred you to a friend of mine and you did good by him too. [You are] by far the best [when compared to other recruiting companies].
Paul was pretty responsive. He kept me up to date and was responsive to my emails. It certainly made it [my job search] a lot easier because you found openings I probably would not have found otherwise. [There was] no need to go look for openings. The first words that come to mind when I think of BCG are effective and hardworking.
