I'm reaching out to you because I'd like to get a better understanding of legal recruiting trends and types of recruiting you specialize in long-term project-based remote, etc. And after doing a little research, you seem to research the person to speak with. How common is it to recruit for short-term projects, if at all? Are you seeing more trends with remote recruited in the legal field? All the recruiting that I do is permanent recruiting.
So I placed people only into long-term jobs. And just as a piece of career advice, one of the reasons that I do that, and I only put people in long-term jobs because that's really what I understand the most. And I find that the longer I do it, the better I get at it. I believe it's very important to continually get better and better at something.
I don't want to go into something where I have a big learning curve, and that distracts me from what I'm doing. So I also think that it is very common for people to get short term jobs as contract attorneys and so forth.
I'm not sure that's the best move for everyone, depending on what you're doing. But you can definitely get short-term jobs. It's not that common in the recruiting field to do that. Most recruiters either do a permanent placement, or they can do contract placement.
We're a permanent placement company at BCG attorney search, but other companies do mainly permanent placement , contract placement and, there's plenty of firms you can find that can help place you as contract attorney or short in a short- term role.
