Lawyer Career Advice
You may be considering talking to a legal recruiter for a number of reasons and making a career move can be a daunting experience. Sometimes a move is progression but it can also be forced upon you. Either way, you should find a professional recruiter that will consult properly about your career aims. It doesnít cost you anything as recruiters are paid by the client so take your time to consult properly and use the professional advice as appropriate.
Once you have found a recruiter that you are confident dealing with then give them the information to enable them to represent you properly in the market place. When the relationship is working well you will hopefully benefit from the advice given as appropriate. Dialogue is important and do ensure that you keep a record of where your details are being or have been sent out to. Naturally, if you donít feel you are being represented properly by the recruiter then you can always choose to dis-instruct them.
Do take in to account that Law Firms can take time to respond to recruiters and many will only respond if they are actually interested in a candidate. Good recruitment consultants will want to place you in the right job as quickly as possible and to this end will be in regular contact with clients to make approaches, chase down CVs, follow up for interviews, feedback and also deal with the negotiations on remuneration. This will allow you to compare the market efficiently and see what is available for you.
To conclude, investing time in your recruiter can save you a great deal of time. Pick up the phone and see what we can offer you.
