How do you know if you’re using a good recruiter? I connected with mine when I replied to a mass email because he’s part of a company that allegedly works closely with the firm/type of firm I want to join. We spoke a couple of times and he seems nice but clearly didn’t even review my resume, which I feel is the most important as the first impression doc..? Is it bad to switch to someone else at his company..?

If your recruiter is simply applying to openings for you, thats a bad recruiter. They should be calling recruiting departments of firms and leveraging their connections. If they aren’t, they are not doing anything you can’t do for yourself and expecting the firm to foot their fee.

I'm a legal recruiter and agree that editing/reviewing a candidate's resume is crucial and something I always do. I'd be happy to help if you're looking for a new recruiter. If not, I wish you the best in your lateral search!

I’m in the middle of the process right now. I have several job offers from firms. I ask the random recruiters/emails if there are any openings at the places where I have the offers. They say “no.” Make sure you pick someone who is leveraging their network.

Good recruiters know the client and will share. I screened with a recruiter for a job recently, and when I was picked up for an interview, the recruiter put me on a call with a colleague who was invested in and imbedded with the client (law firm) and she prepped me hard for an hour, like with mock questions, and gave me all the info. Recruiters - even in-house ones - will do that and give you the scoop. If you aren't getting scoop, they aren't good.

There are so many recruiters. Switch to someone you trust, but keep in mind they don’t work for you. They’re trying to get you a job bc it makes them money.

In March, I was in MBB final round and they asked me about my weaknesses, which is so simple that it caught me off guard.

I didn't get the role, and for the past 3 months I've been reflecting on my weaknesses as they come to mind. I'm up to 47 weaknesses and 4,966 words:
