Any tips on getting recruiters’ attention when submitting resumes from your personal email where they cold emailed you re. Positions to your work email? I haven’t gotten responses to my emails/calls so far with 2 recruiters. Is this the norm?

Currently in biglaw but I’m being paid under market and I’m trying to make moves with biglaw to better my comp. All advice re. how to effectively go about applying to new gigs to achieve this is welcomed.

Find their WhatsApp and WhatsApp them. Or just call them up. Sometimes they are just snowed under. Cold emailing lawyers on their work email with generic mass emails is generally bad practice though so they may just not be that interested in you. I’m assuming they didn’t send you a super personalised email.

Side note. I mentor folks who are starting as SEs but sometimes the mentor needs to be the mentee.

I told them I’m happy to consider the full offer. Should I be concerned they won’t offer me the job?
