Most of the big recruiting companies are going to have in-house opportunities, but they more than likely will not overlap so it makes sense to talk to recruiters with multiple companies just to make sure you are on everyone's radar. Going in-house can take a long time and can be frustrating, especially if you are limited geographically; the very best way is through your own network. When you apply online, just remember that the first person looking at your resume is an HR person who does not have a legal background so make sure your resume really spells out that your experience closely aligns with the posting. They are not going to understand the nuances of your practice.
