Every individual recruiter's style has a certain merit. Nevetheless, when you are dealing with recruiters it is important to be aware of their particular recruiting style. As the head of a national recruiting firm, I speak with legal recruiters both within and outside of my recruiting firm each day and have become quite familiar with various recruiting styles. If you use a recruiter for your job search, the recruiter you use will undoubtedly have their own particular style. It is important that you be aware of your legal recruiter's particular recruiting style because this will determine how successful the recruiter is for you. MORE
Are you among the many job seekers who are contemplating whether you should waste time job searching during the holiday season? If you are, I advise you to start job searching. If you've already started job searching, then continue to job search. Contrary to what many job seekers believe, hiring does not come to a halt during the holidays.

As I sit before my computer monitor writing this short article, the window for my document is minimized so as to maximize my view of my desktop background-a view of our beloved, blue planet from two hundred miles above its surface. The stunning vista of creamy, white-blue clouds and indigo sea against a black, starless sky reminds me of the amazing richness of opportunities constantly before us...and of our regrettable inability to take advantage of all of them. Fortunately, leading full and joyful lives does not require that we take advantage of all opportunities but, rather, that we carefully choose the precious few possibilities that we can and will pursue. What a difference it will make in your law career if you seize those few opportunities and take full advantage of the doors they open! MORE
