I’d network with former clerks from your district before using a recruiter. Most firms won’t want to pay a recruiter fee for brand-new associates.

Why use a recruiter? You should be able to get plenty of interviews just by sending a resume direct to firms. Your judge (especially if in NY/DC) probably has a network of people at firms who could hand your resume off to the recruitment department. Mine certainly did, and I’ve never had an easier time getting job offers.

I’m not sure the district I’m clerking in translates to the major city markets, and I’m also finding firms are hesitant to hire/interview laterals. Plus, from what I hear, COVID has thrown a wrench in hiring altogether at the moment.

Agree, recruiters don’t work with clerks but a reputable one will likely give you tips... resume, cover letter, names of recruiting managers. It was much easier pre - Covid

Most firms won’t hire clerks through recruiters. Happy to provide advice but a recruiter won’t be a great resource for actual job opportunities at this stage.

Hi! I have placed numerous judicial law clerks including those at the junior level. My LinkedIn profile has public recommendations from many of my law clerks. I’ve placed many coming out of the Eastern District of Texas for example. I’d be happy to put you in touch with these past candidates as recommendations if you wish. Feel free to contact me at priya@paclegalsearch.com.

Seeking some candid advice: I am relatively new to the legal community (roughly 1.5 years). I work in insurance and I first believed my frustrations/dissatisfaction involving my current role stemmed from my inability to effectively capture my time, especially when my 10-15 hour days (and long weekends) would produce minuscule results. After consulting with my external legal community, I turned my billable hours around (virtually overnight). (continues in comments)...

Ok guys here’s a question. I’m modeling a deal with a 5 and 10 year exit and am seeing the 10 year IRR is higher (10.75% vs 15.5% respectively). How can this be? Sure the equity multiple is higher due to additional yearly cash flow, higher selling price in year 10 vs 5, and bringing down debt balance further. I just don’t get how IRR can go up? Any thoughts?
