Why should I work with a legal recruiter?

April 5, 2018

Using a professional legal search consultant definitely has its advantages. We are often asked about the value we add to the search process. Whether you’re an associate looking to make your first career jump, or a seasoned partner looking to move your practice, a legal recruitment consultant can be a great resource. Why?

We know the market. Any recruiter worth their salt should make it their mission to stay on top of trends and opportunities – from new market entrants to salary increases, they should always have their finger on the pulse of what’s happening in the market.

We diligently research available opportunities. It’s impossible for a busy lawyer who is managing a full workload to keep tabs on all the available opportunities in your area or market. A legal recruiter should have a solid grasp on the opportunities currently available in their market and in their areas of expertise.

We can help get your foot in the door. Legal recruiters spend years building up credibility in the market. A recruiter should only present candidates to opportunities that fit their requirements and vice versa.

A few other key reasons to use a legal recruitment consultant:

  • We help you build your resume and synopsis
  • We maintain strict confidentiality
  • We prepare you for interviews
  • We assist in salary negotiations
  • We take care of the details
  • We provide emotional, moral, and professional support throughout the process

A good legal recruiter is in it for the long-haul.  Find yourself a recruiter who builds long-term relationships and wants to help you on your path to achieving your career goals.
