Something Most Recruiters Will Never Tell You:
The Three Ways Legal Recruiters Recruit


INTRODUCTION

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

Job Searching during the Holidays


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. Hiring may slow down a little, but it still goes on. Employers still have needs for their businesses, and they must continue to fill those needs. MORE

''The extent to which you take responsibility over something is the extent to which you take control over it.'' -I came across this quote the other day and it got me thinking; this statement can be related to many facets of one's life. However, as an employment advocate, I find this to be especially true.

''Making Partner'' or ''Things to Do While Waiting for the Dream Job and the Dream Practice''


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

It's All About Who You Know (And Who Knows You)


You are in line to enter a club, and the group ahead of you gets a hearty welcome from the matre d' and is seated at a table in the front by the stage. When your turn arrives, you are greeted indifferently and seated in the back by the bathrooms. Your companion turns to you and says, ''They must know someone.'' You hear about a former colleague who just has taken a fantastic job with a great title and even better pay. Your former colleague is now light years ahead of you on the career path. You think, ''She must know someone.'' MORE
