Carleen was very persistent, which I appreciated because I was being kind of lazy about my job search. She was also patient with me because I was initially open to going to a lot of places but then when it really came down to it I really only wanted a handful of markets and she was able to accommodate that. She discussed and negotiated with the firm I am at now because initially there was a Rochester opening and I said I didn't want that, and she discussed it with them and she was able to get Buffalo as an option. I think her patience and persistence were very important.
[Working with BCG] was super easy. It wasn't really looking for much of a change but I was able to select markets and practice fields. I thought it was overall really good getting all of the open positions. I think some of them could have been a little bit more tailored. Sometimes I was getting them for markets I wasn't interested in or certain admissions were required and I didn't have those, so that was a bit annoying. Same for practice areas - it was a bit too broad of a search. Overall it was good to see a lot of options and I was actually interested in a number of positions but there were still too many that were not my jurisdiction or practice area.
Carleen was really good, I appreciated her work. I think you guys did a pretty good job. Some of the blog posts and articles are a bit over the top and crazy, but overall I think the placement set up and the job search functions are really great.
Q.Where would we rank amongst other recruiting company's?
A. I haven't really; I was contacted by a couple other recruiting firms. You guys were pretty great. I have recommended BCG to a couple of friends. I don't know if they are looking for the same tier of firms, as you work with some of the top tier stuff but I still recommended them.
