Legal Authority Says You Can Get Hired Now in Today's Legal Market

Pasadena - According to an article appearing in Deseret News, searching for a job opportunity through companies' online portals may be a waste of time. The article reports that professional job-search coaches recommend the process of finding a job through direct contact with the companies that you want to work for-in other words, contact them directly. Utilizing a customized and targeted mailing campaign is an effective job search strategy in today's legal market.

"Not all legal hiring organizations advertise their positions," said Harrison Barnes, Esq., CEO, and President of Legal Authority. "Because of this, Legal Authority is able to benefit our clients in a way that online job boards, recruiters and others simply cannot match-we penetrate legal markets on behalf of our clients, providing them with exposure to potential employers." According to an article appearing in National Jurist, more than 32 percent of students graduating from law school effectively secured employment from self-initiated contact with an employer. "When you conduct a targeted mailing you are applying to every employer who may have an advertised position, may be hiring informally without an advertisement, or who may decide they have a need when they see your application," said Barnes. "This marketing strategy has worked for thousands of attorneys and law students who have used Legal Authority."

Market research conducted by Legal Authority indicates that targeted mailings to legal employers, including in-house, law firm, government, and public interest organizations, is extremely effective because most legal positions are filled through self-initiated contact with legal employers. Writing effective and customized letters and resumes, indicating qualifications, make a good first impression with the gate keepers of a potential employer. A recent job-search article on About.com's Job Search page indicates that your first opportunity to make a first impression is all about the cover letter and resume. "Targeted mailing and customized letters is the most effective way to get a job because it enables you to identify every potential employer who meets your interest," said Barnes.
