Ask A Legal Recruiter

Can anyone explain the value of a recruiter if you are consistently locating and sending them relevant job postings? They are always lovely to speak with but I’m wondering if it is better to just apply directly via a firm’s website? I understand that firms have to pay recruiters a not insignificant sum for placements and want to remain competitive when applying. Thoughts?

Sounds like you are doing their job for them. Whole point is essentially do all the leg work, keep an eye on the market so we know instantly when a firm is hiring/proactively reach out to firms that have no advertised postings etc.

I had a final round last Thursday, and the hiring manager mentioned the next step will be reference checks. I have another offer due end of this week, which I told them about during the interview. Is it appropriate to follow up with the hiring manager today/tomorrow for an expedited decision, or should I give them at least a week for the final decision?

Got promoted to C this year but still anticipate being underpaid. My director pretty much confirmed that given market conditions. I want to switch jobs to be paid fairly faster. Given I know my value compared to my peers, do I wait until September when promotions go into effect and I’m actually a C to start applying to jobs? I also won’t know my new salary until end of August. Can I negotiate a salary not based on current pay but what I should be at compared to my peers?

Honest questions about voting process as a first time voter and recently naturalized citizen. 1- Why isn’t it declared a holiday to encourage voting? 2- Why is voter identification such a divisive topic? We have had years to fix this problem so why have we not made it mandatory? If it is a democracy, only valid voters should vote 3- Why are mail in and early votes not counted on Election Day (not a day early, not a day late?). That way there would be no confusion.
