Finding the Right Legal Recruiter For You
Not all legal recruiters are created equal. Here are tips for candidates who are considering the assistance of recruiters:
- Interview your recruiter before you engage them. Get to know them. Understand their primary client base and track record. Do your research.
- Understand your recruiter’s level & method of communication. This will allow you to sleep at night.
- Take full ownership of your job hunting process. Never surrender the process to someone else.
- Do not let a recruiter send your resume unless you give him/her permission.
- Track when and where resumes have been sent. Keep an ongoing record during the process.
- Your recruiter should not send your resume unless you know the employer has a specific position posted or the employer has shown a specific interest in learning more about you.
- Your recruiter should know if the employer pays a recruiter fee. If uncertain or does not, don’t have them send your resume. Employers who do not pay recruiter fees avoid openly solicited resumes from recruiters.
- Do not work with more than one recruiter at a time. If you choose two, make sure they do not cross wires and submit your resume to the same employer.
