Myth Versus Reality for Law Firm Jobs


A. Harrison Barnes

Looking for the perfect law firm position? Our database contains virtually every law firm in the United States, Europe and Asia. Simply pick the city you are interested in, your practice group and allow our research team to do the work of preparing your letters and helping you apply to firms. Modified on a daily basis, our database contains thousands of firms that are not even listed in Martindale Hubble or other traditional sources. If you want to practice law in a law firm, we can help you get the job you want. Sure you could spend weeks if not even months compiling information on all the law firms in the cities you are interested in. Alternatively, you could use Legalauthority.com to find the job you are seeking now!


LEGAL MYTH:
I will never find a law firm position.


LEGALAUTHORITY:
Right now, in virtually every American city, there is a law firm that needs an attorney just like you-regardless of your qualifications. This position could be tens of thousands of dollars more than you are making now. This position may not even be advertised and you are not going to find this law firm either by using Monster, 15 gizillion web sites, a headhunter, or even Martindale Hubble. Chances are … this firm is already in our database. Let us put you in touch with them today!


LEGAL MYTH:
It is better to work with a recruiter to find a law firm position.


LEGALAUTHORITY:
Unless you have stellar qualifications, there are very few recruiting firms that will work with you. While recruiters are enormously helpful in getting candidates a position, the fact of the matter is that unless you have stellar qualifications they will not be able to do you much good. Stellar qualifications mean that you are coming from a top law firm and attended a top law school. Recruiters are beneficial in making good matches; however, using a recruiter may not always be in your best interest.


In addition, smaller firms often do not use recruiters. This can result in you missing out on joining the next Skadden Arps or other great firm that does not use recruiters. Moreover, in a tough economy law firms like anyone need to cut back on their expenses. Using our service can help you get the position you are seeking without a recruiter’s involvement.


LEGAL MYTH:
If I spend enough time on job posting boards I will find the perfect law firm position.


LEGALAUTHORITY:
All firms do not advertise their open positions on job posting boards or in the classified section of your local newspaper. Sorry-if that is the only way you are doing your job search you are going to miss out on numerous opportunities.


LEGAL MYTH:
Only firms with advertised positions will ever interview me.


LEGALAUTHORITY:
Wrong. Most law firms are seeking attorneys to join their team at virtually all points in time. If you rely on only advertised positions, you are going to be missing out on a massive amount of potential positions on a constant and ongoing basis. If your resume and materials arrive at the firm at the right time, you may get an outstanding position.


Confidentiality is a serious concern for any job seeker. That’s why we will provide you with the actual letters, for your signature, for you send out your materials to. Accordingly, you will never be contacting a firm you do not want to contact-or worse-your own firm. This is the way it should be. We will provide you with the contacts and you can run your job search with the letters, resumes and so forth we prepare on your behalf. It has never been easier to get a legal job!
