Firm Culture: Finding Your Niche
When deciding whether or not to accept a job offer from a law firm, there are many elements to take into account. Salary, benefits and, location top the list of factors to weigh in the balance. But there is one other thing that should be given serious consideration-the culture, or the ''feel,'' of a firm. More specifically, will you be happy working there? It is not a decision to be taken lightly. MORE

One Attorney's Experience: Making the Switch from Corporate to Litigation?
Given recent economic conditions, many Legal Authority clients choose to make the switch from corporate law to litigation each week. While this is not always the best choice (especially if you believe that you are particularly suited to doing corporate work), it is an option that Legal Authority clients have chosen with increasing frequency due to the perceived stability of litigation as opposed to corporate positions. Due mainly to the better economy a couple of years ago, many attorneys were choosing to make the switch from litigation to corporate. To give you a sense of the mechanics involved with making a switch, we have profiled a recent Legal Authority client who successfully made the switch. MORE

On-Campus Interviewing or Legal Authority?
On-campus interviewing allows the largest firms to troll for what they define as the best candidates (i.e., those with the best grades, law review membership, and class rank). However, most law school graduates have the skills and knowledge to succeed in most firms. Very often, law firms consider potential additions to their firms when they receive a resume in the ''off-season''; namely, before or after the on-campus interviewing program. Also, many firms do not want to go through law schools' frustrating on-campus schedules or bear the expense and lost time of traveling to schools, and they simply fill their ranks with students who demonstrate the initiative to send them a resume. MORE

Working with recruiters
The movie Jerry Maguire told the story of a sports agent hounded by phone calls from an aspiring professional athlete who kept insisting, ''Show me the money!'' Sometimes lawyers, although they know better, think of legal recruiters or search specialists in the same way—as if they might be their personal agents. So they wonder why their resumes are often not acknowledged or their phone calls never returned. Though recruiters such as BCG Attorney Search can be quite helpful in searching for an attorney position, there is a significant difference between an NFL player's agent and a legal ''headhunter.'' Legal recruiters court skilled lawyers and work very hard to market their abilities to potential employers, but they are not paid by the lawyer. Their fees are paid by the client company or law firm to locate, screen, and then recommend qualified legal candidates. MORE

A guide to networking meetings
You have identified the names of people you would like to contact, carefully composed a letter, and followed up with a phone call scheduling a time for your meeting. After that preparation, the meeting itself is nothing more than a friendly conversation asking for advice, but the flow of this conversation should not be left to chance. MORE

How to conduct an effective targeted mailing of your resume
Mass mailing doesn't have to be ineffective. In fact, it can be highly effective if done right. The key to making it so is to understand the difference between just any mass mailing and a carefully planned, targeted mailing. MORE

How to handle the interview scheduling call
Many people view the ad-answering phase of a job search too narrowly, as if it were only a two-step process: 1) You answer the advertisement, and then 2) you interview with your potential employer. The most ignored aspect of this activity is as important as a steppingstone in the middle of a fast-flowing stream. MORE
