The good thing about working with BCG in general is all of the resources and articles. The job search showed that the firm itself was very familiar with the type of industry I was in. I was at a very large law firm and you could tell by the way they put out articles and the things they talked about (how to prep for interviews, how to do a job search) really did show familiarity with the industry - that was highly appealing and made me feel better about the process. Everyone was extremely responsive which is always good. A combination of these 2 things - responsiveness, client service and it was very apparent the firms were familiar with the legal market.[my legal placement professional] scoped out opportunities that I didn't know existed and handled a lot of the administrative work. This was my first time doing anything like this in the legal industry and I didn't know if I asked "X or Y" how it would look and my legal placement professional was able to say, "what we normally see is this" or "that is not common practice" and that was tremendously helpful. It is always nice to have that resource. BCG Search always had articles put out, I think by the founder. The articles are very good and accurate. It showed a lot of knowledge of the legal industry which is very appealing so it isn't just another person sending you what you thought was spam email- at Proskauer we would get recruiting emails every day. All of the articles are so accurate that I was comfortable enough to say "Okay, here's a place that maybe, unlike the others, really knows the industry." It made me that much comfortable and gave me faith in working with BCG. Q. Where would we rank amongst other recruiting company's?A. I had spoken with other firms before but this was by far the best one.

[My favorite things about working with BCG and Sarah] was the weekly updates on how things were going. Sarah was also very responsive and very in touch over text. It was very useful to get updates over text because text worked better for me at times. She adapted to making text work since that is what worked well for me so I appreciated that as well. It made it easier to have the information easily and readily available and to have her available via text whenever she had a question or wanted to follow up on something. She was very easy to access.[Working with BCG made my job search] so much easier! Sarah was able to do the background work and talk to the firms hiring people to "make the sale" if you will. It took the pressure off of me of having to make a cover letter and having to do the searching around to find those positions - some positions may not even have been posted. I like the online portal and tracking system. She would send me a list of places she wanted to apply to and you just approve or not approve those applications. That was super helpful and the tracking capabilities were also super helpful. I had a very positive experience. I felt comfortable talking to Sarah. A couple times I would tell her "I don't know if I can do this today" and she would come through with a pep talk about this is why it is important to do this and giving me options. I cannot emphasize enough how much I liked the weekly updates and her accessibility via text.Q. Where would we rank amongst other recruiting company's?A. BCG is more comprehensive. At the beginning, before I even started searching, Sarah and I had a good conversation about if I still wanted to practice anymore and what was I looking for and what was interesting to me. In my mind she searched around for things that would be suitable for me instead of saying "I have this" and trying to fit me into something that was already on her plate.In terms of the structure of things, as I mentioned, such as the tracking - not just of where things had been sent but the status of the application was super helpful and the weekly updates. BCG is the best of the ones that I have worked with or that I have heard about those friends have worked with.

The BCG app is pretty convenient. I didn't use it a ton because I wasn't involved in the process for too long. You can go on and approve the jobs and the listings and the way it is set up is really nice. My legal placement professional was really great! Especially early on, she didn't contact me too much but reached out when there were good opportunities. The job I ended up taking wasn't one that was posted. It was an opportunistic job so I thought it was great that she went ahead and contacted places she had connections with anyway. She worked at a quick speed and I was under a time crunch with another opportunity and she really moved things along for me very quickly.It was helpful to have my legal placement professional there to ask questions about the firm. She had a lot of insider information that I probably wouldn't have gotten a lot of with my own research. In a traditional setting I would have tried to connect with someone at the firm or someone who used to work there but because of the time pressure everything happened within a week and she was able to give me a lot of details about individuals and the firm that was beneficial to me when I was interviewing. Q. Where would we rank amongst other recruiting company's?A. My legal placement professional is the only recruiter that I have worked with that passed my information along without there being a job posting which I liked because, obviously, it ended up working out for me. It is a more aggressive, not in a negative sense, approach and especially given the circumstances in the economy and with the pandemic you need somebody like that right now. You need someone that will advocate strongly for you!Overall it was a very positive experience and I have recommended it to other people since. On the whole, I was very pleasantly surprised with the process and very happy with it. Nothing negative to report at all!

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

BCG was very user friendly; the website was very easy and accepting. All ofthe different Q&A's on the website were very helpful. Working with my legal placement professional was fabulous - I couldn't have asked for anyone better! She was always thereto answer my questions. She was great about reaching out to firms that Ifound or she found. She was very proactive throughout everything. I alwayshad a lot of questions and she was always very willing to answer them so Iappreciated that. She never made me feel like I was bothering her even whenI was pestering her with repeat questions.I didn't have to do too much at all. It was nice that she streamlinedeverything for me. I was swamped at work and I really don't know how I wouldhave done it without someone helping me. It took it from something I didn'tknow how I would have done to something that was very easy. I reallyappreciate everything BCG did for me. It was a great process and I ended upat a firm that I absolutely love. It was all great!Samantha GerencirEmory University School of Law, Class of 2018Placed at Zuckerman Spaeder LLP

My legal placement professional was always really quick about responding to my questions when I had them in the interview process and during the job search. I thought it was a very efficient process overall. Definitely recommend it! I didn't really apply that much on my own for firms. You basically did all the work for me so it made it incredibly easy. I thought it was a great experience. Q. Where would we rank amongst other recruiting company's you have used?A. I have only used 2, but so far you would be #1!

My legal placement professional was just great, from the intake and talking with me about opportunities and tidying up my resume to my experience and the negotiations, it was really great dealing with her! You essentially took care of everything. Helping with the pre-process of ensuring I was showing all of my qualifications and skills in the best possible way. [She made it easier by] searching for positions that would be best for me and making those arrangements. During the offer of employment and those negotiations and conversations she worked directly with the firm for me so it was very good. I didn't have to do much on my end except communicate with my legal placement professional and obviously do the interviews and stuff, but other than that BCG handled everything so that was great!Q. Where would we rank amongst other recruiting company's?A. I have not used anyone other than BCG in the past but in putting myself out there for a new position I did get called by recruiters from other firms and I would have to say that I prefer BCG over the other firms. You seem to have it more together in terms of really looking out for the candidate you are working with and trying to look at various positions. Also, working with candidate to have them present themselves the best possible way they can. I didn't necessarily get that feeling from the other 2 or 3 recruiting firms that I spoke to.

I thought the process was really easy. I was connected to someone who was in my current region, but because I was looking outside of my region, they assigned Romina from the west coast, and I had an east coast and south area recruiter and I really liked that they worked together and kept each other up to date. I felt like they were more on top of it than I was a lot of the time and Romina was awesome. She was really responsive, she was able to do a lot via text which made it really easy to communicate with her during the day. Email is great, but the firm I worked for doesn't let us have our personal email when we are in the office. She was really nice and I got my dream job and I really appreciate all of her hard work. I felt like I didn't have to do much other than to send you my resume and some requested information and then BCG did the rest of the work. They communicated directly with the employers, they got me the leads of the places where openings were and set up the interviews, and they also dealt with the correspondence after. They just made it so that my work was really minimal. I haven't worked with any other recruiters, but I found you because you were ranked as the number one legal recruiting services. Everyone was really awesome to work with. Karen was my point of contact for the Midwest and legal placement professional for East Coast and South. They were all really great and I really appreciate everyone. I am really excited to start my next adventure and I wouldn't have had the time or resources to do it by myself.

Romina did a good job preparing me for the interview for the position I just accepted and she took a lot of time with me. She was very hard working and dedicated and I felt like she actually cared, which was really cool. I appreciated her honesty. I felt like she was honest about how I could do the best at showcasing my skills and presenting myself in an interview. Being provided the available openings that were in my practice area and getting sent a weekly update on available openings and progress reports, status updates, having it all in one report was convenient and easy and I really liked that and it made my search much easier. I would say it was a 10/10 experience. My experience was really great and I was really happy working with Romina. She is really excellent and attentive, and took the time to get to know me and what I was looking for, and I felt like she was really motivated to find me something and it paid off. I am really grateful and super excited for my new job!

My legal placement professional was extremely helpful and considerate of my time and the need to discreetly navigate this process around my current work schedule. She was incredibly responsive and candid in her responses. My legal placement professional was also very relatable, which made it easy to build rapport and work together with her. BCG allowed me to continue to focus on my work, while making background strides in my job search. It is difficult to search for a job while working full-time, and I don't think I would be anywhere near my current situation had it not been for BCG and my legal placement professional. In this current job search, I had exposure to other recruiters, and none of them were as helpful, responsive and genuine as my legal placement professional. Thanks again for everything BCG and my legal placement professional did in helping me to take this next step in my career and life!
