4 Steps to Help Your Staffer Find You a Job
How to Make the Best Use of a Legal Staffer
The best way to help your legal staffer is to help yourself. Just like any other path in life, you can’t move forward if you don’t look at yourself in the mirror and ask, “What needs to be worked on here?” So let’s get down to the nitty-gritty and figure out exactly how to make the best use of your time. That way, we can get you hired as quickly as possible.
There are different types of recruiters and staffers, so it helps to know which type you are working with.
● Retained recruiters: These work on high-end C-level positions, and they are paid a commission or flat fee for producing a pool of candidates for review. It doesn’t matter if anyone gets hired in the end; they just have to come up with enough people for their client to look at.
● Temporary staffing/augmentation recruiters: These work on limited assignments and are paid based on candidates’ hourly billings.
● Corporate/internal recruiters: These are typically salaried employees who work for companies on an ongoing basis.
● Third-party agency recruiters: These work on a contingency basis for independent agencies who need assistance filling open jobs.
At SuitsOn Staffing, we focus entirely on you. We are corporate recruiters, so that is what we do.
How You Can Help the Staffing Process
No one knows you better than you, and there are things that you can do to help facilitate the process, so a staffer can find the right fit for you, faster.
1. Work on your pitch: Recruiting and staffing is sales, at its core. We are trying to sell your services to a firm, and to do that, we need to sell you. What are your best qualities as an employee? What is your elevator pitch? If you had 20 seconds to sell your skills, what would you say?
2. Be active: Don’t sit back and think you’ve made it to the end point. This is just the beginning! We want you to be happy with where your resume is going, so if you don’t like a particular firm, we want to know. Stay involved and ask where your materials are being sent. Check in with us on a regular basis.
3. Think about your connections: Don’t be afraid to check with people you know at certain firms and try to get a reference. Be bold!
4. Read the requirements: Make sure you’re not applying for a worker’s compensation job when you have a family law background. You will just annoy the hiring coordinator, and the last thing we want to do is alienate someone who’s hiring.
By working with SuitsOn Staffing, we will find you the perfect fit. That’s what we do!
