Ask A Legal Recruiter

Lateraling from big law, major market to small/mid-tier market. L&E- focused attorney and background. Better to go to best ranked law firm in area or national employment boutique? Why?

Ok then you have to figure out/balance which firm will give you better experience and what is the partnership track for each. All things being equal, I would lean towards the boutique because with the right support you can really hone your craft and always lateral into a bigger firm once you are a partner with solid experience.

Agreed. And some of the more elite boutiques and middle-market firms can pay very well while also offering more business development opportunities and a realistic partnership path.

Is the GMAT score average really lower for women in a certain MBA class? I hear this a lot and question if difference is that big/relevant. You see that too? Any ideas of the reasons for that?

Curious what people's age ranges for dating are. There's the classic "half your age plus seven" rule, but wondering if that's actually followed. Please comment below with your age, gender, and range.

Does MBB take experience hires 1-2 years out of undergrad for entry level consultant positions or is it only direct from university?

Hired at a “big law” job about 4 weeks ago, tho they claimed they weren’t. They materially lied re: benefits, probation, 401k, training, work hours, etc didn’t even put 6 hours into “training me” tho they said they would. Got an out of the blue offer over the weekend in my preferred field. Gave notice on Monday, the partner swore, yelled, belittled me, and border line threatened my career. “Fired me” and said I was done that minute and now HR won’t return emails re: final check. Advice?

Has anyone been successful in transitioning out of the practice of law into another type of career? Or know anyone that has? For context, I have been practicing for 10 years, currently work at an insurance defense firm. I don’t enjoy litigation, and would love to hear some ideas as to how this law degree can be put to use in other ways.

How do I tread water in consulting. On a project way too technical and have decided this industry is not for me - at least at this capacity. How do I just survive. I’m not going for a promotion just trying not to quit within less than a year lol
