I worked with my legal placement professional and she was wonderful. She was my favorite thing about working with BCG.
Working with BCG gave me access to opportunities that weren't necessarily posted in the market place. The job I ended up accepting, the firm wasn't advertising an open role but my legal placement professional sent my resume to them anyway and they were interested and interviewed me. If I hadn't been working with BCG I would not have had the opportunity that I ended up taking.Something I found helpful was the website where I could login to my account and look at the firms that had open positions and I could pick which ones I was interested in and keep track through the website of where I had applied and where I was in the process. Having that organization was really helpful. Also, before interviews I had phone calls with my legal placement professional where she went through some tips on topics to cover, topics to avoid, how to answer questions. I found that information very useful and used that information she gave me to create an outline that I then used to prepare for every interview. Q. Where would we rank amongst other recruiting firms that you may have used?A. The highest! I had the most success through you guys but also it seemed to be the most comprehensive. I reached out to several other recruiting firms early in the process and BCG immediately responded and some other firms responded slowly or not at all. BCG immediately set me up with an account and it came together very quickly and very naturally.
I really appreciated the professionalism of my recruiter, and her diligence on my behalf. My legal placement professional made the process easy to understand and take part in. Coordination with the firms was all handled by her. She also assisted with interview preparation and insight on firms. This is the best recruiting company I have worked with. BCG does not pressure you into making a decision and they will listen to your needs. I cannot thank my legal placement professional and BCG enough for their assistance and understanding through the entire process.

My legal placement professional was really good to keep in touch with me and let me know what was going on, she always kept me in the loop. She helped me find jobs that were clearly not available online and ultimately, the job I ended up getting is one that had not been posted on a website. BCG and my legal placement professional are great!
Sarah responded to my initial inquiry very quickly. She was amiable, professional, positive and diligent throughout our interactions. She really connected with me on my unique situation and served as a guide throughout my entire process (which took a little over a year in total, including about 7 months while connected with Sarah). Conversations with her gave me confidence and encouragement. Sarah was instrumental in getting me a job. I was trying to make a big jump in practice areas (from U.S. federal financial regulatory and transactional work in an AM 100 firm with a cross-border focus to a family law litigation practice), and would have been totally lost in the process without her. She reached out to firms all across my region and her contacts helped connect me with the firm that ultimately hired me. She also helped me prepare for interviews, navigate the offer process to leverage another firm's offer to my benefit, and generally sift through the more personal elements associated with taking a big career risk. I could not be more happy with the firm I was able to get a job with. This was the absolute best outcome I could have hoped for (and frankly probably wouldn't have thought possible on my own) when I began the process. This is absolutely thanks to Sarah's support.
I think it was my Washington DC recruiter's persistence. I was in a spot where the market was bad when I first reached out to my recruiter. And I think over time we were able to focus on my strengths to get me to where I am.

Becca was super responsive, very optimistic, supportive, and encouraging. She was very good about giving clear, constructive and specific advice. I found her to be very candid and honest which is very important because you want to be able to trust your recruiter and feel like they are looking out for your interests. 80% of the process was pretty hands off for me. I knew the applications were going out and I felt like I was job searching without doing all of the heavy lifting until it came time for the interview. Even there, communicating with the firm and their HR department - a lot of that Becca handled so I could just focus on preparing for the interview and the substantive aspect of it and giving my best in the interview.I had a great experience and I really enjoyed working with Becca and if I need a job again, she will be the first person I call!Q. Where would we rank amongst other recruiting company's you may have used?A. The best so far! BCG Attorney Search
Now that I'm all settled in, I wanted to drop you a quick line to let you know how much I appreciate all of your help. When I started this process, I didn't know what to expect. I spoke with several recruiters, and I knew from our first conversation that you were different, which is why I decided to work with you. You exceeded my expectations on many levels. Aside from being very knowledgeable about the market and arranging several great opportunities, you were incredibly easy to talk to, and I genuinely believed that you had my best interest at heart. You were always there to speak with me (even on nights and weekends) and to ease my anxieties, and I'm eternally grateful that you made this process so manageable. I consider myself very lucky to have worked with you and attribute much of my success in this job search to your assistance. If you ever need me to serve as a reference for other lawyers, feel absolutely free to call on me. It's the least I can do to thank you.
BCG delivered exactly as promised...My recruiter quickly developed a list of target possibilities, arranged interviews and provided me with the support and coaching I needed...After a short job search, I received an offer from my number one choice and quickly accepted. I would not hesitate in referring BCG Attorney Search to others considering a job change. Thanks again.
I want you to know you have been absolutely superb. I should have come to you from the very beginning, and perhaps this process would not have taken so long. I will definitely keep you in mind should I wish to make any transition in the future.
I had a wonderful experience working with your recruiter at BCG. He was extremely helpful from the very first stage of my job search. He began working on my behalf immediately after I first contacted him, offering useful suggestions on my resume and cover letter, and helping refine my presentation for maximum effectiveness. He was also quick to respond to the questions and concerns I had about various firms in the D.C. area, both before and after my interviews. He was always willing to research a question to make sure he had an accurate answer, and was always prompt in replying. Perhaps what I appreciate most is his friendly and amicable nature, which helped relieve much of the anxiety of a cross-country job search. I have thoroughly enjoyed interacting with him, professionally and socially. I consider him to be a great counselor and a friend. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for help finding a legal job in the D.C. area.
I have never had such a positive experience with a search firm. You were a pleasure to work with. You had some very constructive advice, and I always enjoyed talking with you. I would, without hesitation, refer people to you.
My experience with BCG was not only professionally rewarding, but personally satisfying for myself and my family. They provided timely updates, candid assessments, and only appropriate opportunities during my search. She was always accessible, and delivered a position that has exposed me to colleagues and clients literally across multiple continents. The job search and interview process is always a challenging one, but she made it positive and ultimately very successful. I recommend BCG without hesitation and look forward to extending my relationship with BCG into the "Hiring Client" arena!
Your recruiter has been extremely helpful with my career move. He provided very insightful guidance to both the general direction and specific details of my job search. What impressed me most was his ultimate professionalism. I could tell that he genuinely cared about my career and he always put my interests first. I would highly recommend him to any of my friends considering a career move.
I have been truly impressed by the professionalism and courtesy of your recruiter. I assure that I will refer everyone I know and that I'll be in touch should I need to make a move. (But for my sake, I hope it's a while before I need your services.) Thanks again for kindness, and efforts on my behalf. My best wishes.
I would like to extend my sincere appreciation and thanks for the great efforts that you put into finding me a job. I felt that you thoroughly explored the market and provided me with accurate advice. Also, I appreciated your career advice. I never felt that you were trying to push me into just "any" job, but were constantly looking for the right fit. I also appreciated the personalized time and attention you provided me with. I don't think I could have found a better recruiter. I always had complete confidence in your skills. Again, many thanks for the great job.
I wanted to thank you again for your help throughout the process. Not being from the area, your insight and knowledge of the local market was a tremendous help. I also appreciated your candor and advice when I was evaluating the various opportunities presented to me. Most of all, I am grateful you helped steer me towards the opportunity that was best for me. I would be glad to recommend you to any colleague considering making a professional change in the D.C./Northern VA market.
Now that I am settled into my new job, I wanted to write and express my enormous thanks to you for being such a wonderful headhunter. While no one in their right mind would ever say that their search for a new job was effortless, I must say that with your assistance, advice, and support, it came pretty close! Thank you so much for your critical advice regarding my resume, for practicing tough interview questions with me, for meeting me on the morning of my interview to give me moral support, and for calling me every couple weeks since my new job started to make sure that all was going well. I am truly grateful for everything you have done. Thank you again.
I have to say, I have always been leery of recruiters and tried avoiding them at all costs. You've been the only one who actually did what I imagined a recruiter should do -- and, landing the position was a bonus. I'll definitely be referring you to friends in the future.
Thank you for your assistance. As I indicated on the call, I can tell that my recruiter in Washington DC is extremely competent and professional, and consequently believe that they are the right person to assist in my search.
It is great to be working with someone who is so competent, attentive and responsive. It definitely makes this whole process much easier.
''Thank you for all of your help over the past few months. Your dedication and professionalism are unmatched. Thanks again for everything.''
I really appreciate your kind words. You are without a doubt the best recruiter I have worked with. You will be my recommendation to anyone who asks.
It was great chatting with my recruiter in Washington DC. I've had the opportunity to chat with a few recruiters over the years but have never been as impressed as I was with my recruiter's enthusiasm and ability to pin-point the specific steps that I have taken over the course of my law school and professional life to advance my career in bankruptcy law.
Thanks so much for all your help. If I decide to come back east I will definitely reach out to you.
Thank you for all of your help with the job hunt, but we can stop the presses--at least for now. Yesterday I accepted a federal clerkship with a district judge for the next 21 months. Hopefully we can work together as my clerkship comes to an end, and the clerkship makes me a bit more marketable. That would be profitable for both of us! Thank you again for your substantial help, and I look forward to working with you again.
I hope all is well. I recently secured a position as a legal recruiter and therefore will no longer be looking for a new job. Thank you for helping me look for a job over the last several months and for all of your advice.
Thanks for the nice letter and what you have done to date. I have to say I have spoken to numerous recruiters over time and you are the only who has really taken the time to understand what makes me unique, provide substantive suggestions to me and act proactively on my behalf. I want you to know I appreciate it.
I am so grateful for your assistance throughout these past couple of months. I really have enjoyed working with you and very much appreciate your efforts.
Thank you once again for taking time out of your morning to speak with me today. I found your advice and guidance to be extremely helpful.
