Legal job opportunities are everywhere. However, finding the right one is like going on a treasure hunt without a map. Social media, networking sites and job boards can be good ways to find the legal job you want—however, working with a legal recruiter is the most effective and reliable method if you are looking to propel your career forward, meet a big goal and find your next long-term position.
A recruiting agency specializes in hiring people to fill numerous specialized vacancies. These involve attorneys, law firm management positions and paralegals. A specific recruiter may focus on a special area of legal recruiting such as counsel recruiting, partner hiring, or associate hiring.
Working with a legal recruiter will take your career in the right direction. In today’s highly competitive Canadian job market, landing a position that you know will take you to the next rung on the ladder is vital. Maybe you have the career experience, but aren’t aware of the strategies you can use to really emphasize your unique value as an employee. Maybe you need help preparing the right resume to get the job you want. A recruiter will not only help you perfect your resume, if necessary, but will also offer insider tips and tricks to assist your candidacy after conducting an in-depth interview to learn about you.
Another reason your career will soar with the help of legal recruiting is you don’t have to worry about actually hunting down the opportunities. Because they spend the majority of their time identifying and organizing job opportunities as well as developing strong ties with firms and corporations in the legal sector, recruiters at The Heller Group are experts at recognizing and highlighting the skills of their candidates. In many situations, recruiters find job opportunities at law firms that candidates might otherwise never even realize were hiring. They’re personally investing in ensuring that your career moves forward rather than laterally or backwards.
Moral support is part of the process of working with one of these professionals. Are you scared you’ll botch the interview? Making a big career shift can be a very challenging decision, and The Heller Group understands this and is more than willing to use their ties in the community to make the transition as smooth as possible for you. In fact, once you land a job, they may continue to assist you with salary negotiations.
Many candidates who have already made their entry into the legal industry worry that their current employers will find out about their job search. Rest assured knowing that part of a recruiter’s job is keeping all that information absolutely confidential. While ensuring that your skills, talents and particular areas of interest are marketed effectively and eventually put to good use at a firm that recognizes your professional objectives, legal recruiting experts at The Heller Group will also provide the kind of support that remains invaluable to individuals entering the community.
