Pasadena, CA - The national full-time, long-term legal employment rate for the 2012 class of law school graduates has been 56.2% as per the Law School Transparency's employment reports. Additionally, much news of lateral hiring and new legal jobs being created with firms shifting base has done the rounds this year. Yet, 'stable' is simply not how a legal career can be described these days. Many even feel that the legal job is no longer a safe bet with attorneys desperately looking for a career switch. Yes, the legal market is tight, but BCG Attorney Search fails to understand why attorneys and partners aren't being able to discover and take advantage of several legal opportunities posted in the country.
"Technology is changing the way jobs are being posted and attorneys as well as partners need to switch over their ways to locate current job openings," suggests Harrison Barnes, Chief Executive Officer at BCG Attorney Search. A job search on the legal recruiter site reports over 500 partner jobs and more than 3000 attorney jobs that still need to be filled, but are being overlooked.
Most attorneys belong to private practices or firms and begin as salaried associates. They go on to become partners at a later stage. To constantly find work, attorneys, at each stage, should be able to continually court clients to maintain a consistent revenue stream. Additionally, building a relationship with a legal recruiter helps substantially, informs Robyn Ginsberg, Esq. and Legal Recruiter at BCG Attorney Search. She explains that building a relationship with a recruiter now, can help to position attorneys to take advantage of lateral opportunities that may arise unexpectedly and may just happen to be a spot-on fit for their interests and experience.
In current times candidates are most likely to obtain interviews when they immediately respond to the new job openings, rather than days, weeks or even months later. And BCG Attorney Search is a top legal recruiter that works constantly advocating for its attorney clientele to match them up with opportunities well-suited to their interests and experience.
Law School Transparency's Executive Director Kyle McEntee, says that law school is too expensive relative to job outcomes. This gathers more impetus when job searches are not conducted judiciously.
