Some people are confused by what it is an attorney recruiter does. Here are a few tips to make working with a recruiter easy:
- Recruiters search for candidates. They match candidates with available opportunities provided to them by their law firm or corporate in-house clients. Recruiters do not find attorneys jobs.
- Working with a recruiter is not the end-all solution to your search. View it as a part of the bigger picture. Recruiters recommend that you maximize your individual job leads by utilizing other job seeking channels such as networking with other attorneys and individuals connected to the law profession.
- Work together. You are on the same team. Its best to be open and honest from the get-go. Build an authentic relationship with your recruiter.
- Above all, know that a recruiter does not work for you, a recruiter works with you.
