Tips For Job Seekers




Your Job Search Is All about the Numbers

Have you ever heard of Legal Authority?Think hard. You may have seen it somewhere in a magazine or on a website or on a billboard. Did you every wonder what Legal Authority is?

It’s the best kept secret of job seekers nationwide. More attorneys and law students find jobs using Legal Authority than any other source in the world. Most legal professionals are aware of the fact that over 75% of legal jobs are filled by word-of-mouth, not by job openings. Using Legal Authority’s aggressive career marketing program, they are able to dominate a job market and generate interviews while friends and colleagues are unable to even get a phone call.

You can tap into the hidden job market. Legal Authority has the world’s most sophisticated database of legal employers, containing up-to-date hiring contacts and classifications for specific criteria such as size, revenue, industry/practice area, and location. With your input, we will use this database to identify every single legal employer that meets your specific interests and search criteria. Somewhere in that market, your next job awaits. We just have to find it.

A good resume and cover letter can make a difference. Our skilled writers will craft a perfect resume and cover letter for the market you are approaching. You get the final say over the documents, of course, and our writers will work with you until we have an exemplary set of documents that will highlight your skills and illustrate your marketability. One of the most frequent comments our clients hear from employers nationwide is how impressed each employer was with the resume and cover letter. This level of perfection never goes unnoticed.

Numbers, numbers, numbers. Legal Authority will print out the completed, addressed application materials that we send to your door. All you do is sign each letter and stamp each envelope. As a result, mailing out hundreds of letters to employers and getting interviews by the handful only takes minimal effort on your part. And, with hundreds of thousands of legal employers nationwide, hundreds of letters are necessary for you to get your foot in the door. Legal Authority’s aggressive strategy is marketing at its purest, and we always win when playing the numbers game.

There’s always a catch. Except with Legal Authority. There is no catch. You are our client, and we will go to the greatest effort possible to give you the best chance you have at finding your next (or first) legal job. We know that you’re discouraged or disappointed in your job prospects, and we make it our goal to make your job search painless.

Think about your job search. Are you 100% confident that you’re doing everything you can to find the best job out there for you? Now that you have the answer, get in touch and start putting us to work for you. Visit our website at, or call us at 1-800-283-3860 to find out more about what we can do for you.
