Question ID: 711175
Can you please provide me with the names/contact information for good head hunting companies providing services for Manhattan? I am a recent graduate from a good law school seeking an associate position with a large to medium sized Manhattan law firm. I would like to hire the services of a company to help me get the interviews and the position I am after. I have found a number of companies on the internet that help firms fill their positions, but not many that help the candidate themselves. And of those that do help the candidate, they only provide services for lawyers with at least one year of experience, not the newly graduated. Being fresh out of law school this is not an option. I look to you to help me find the right head hunting company to contact. Thanks!

Hi Lawgrad, Your question has slipped far down in the deck without further responses. I was hoping there would be some that could help you directly. This is just a free personal opinion from having read your question several times. Since you have graduated, not having a job in your profession is becoming an increasing problem the longer you wait. For a while, you can explain that you took a trip around the world or something, but law firms are accustomed to finding career-oriented grads who are willing to take on the drudgery and work for their bar exam. As Czh-ga has pointed out, headhunters work for the employers, so naturally they are only interested in persons who meet the qualifications and experience specified by their client lawfirms. Your school's career services office is really your best bet. What are the people there suggesting? Perhaps that you shouldn't aim yet for an associate position, perhaps not for a Manhattan firm? You have already discovered that graduating from a top 10 school - for which I congratulate you - will not open all doors. My basic concern is that every month that passes since your graduation will make it more difficult to find a position. Please accept this as well-intended, although a bit "in your face". Good luck and regards, Myoarin
