If you own a law firm or manage a corporate legal department, you may need to hire people from time to time; at the same time, when you struggle with cut throat competition for clients, you have to face fierce competition in hiring the right candidates for job openings in your legal concern.
While ‘www’ is cluttered with general job boards, there was a need of a niche job board catering only to legal jobs; soon most of the legal concerns transferred their accounts to such legal jobs portals, but, was that sufficient? The answer is no, because while these job portals were flourishing, the lucrative and rewarding jobs were stuck in middle of common threads running through all the bad job ads. Now was the need to sell your firm name well on these job boards; some opted for paying for featured jobs, while others compromised by hiring less-qualified legal professionals. But, there is a way in-between, that is realized by just a few, where you don’t have to pay more and you can optimize your legal posts so that the best talent in the market can reach your job posting in time.
Here are a few legal job posting tips that will interest the right type of candidates while discouraging unqualified applicants:
Sell Your Legal Concern: Too often law firms don’t mention advantages and benefits of working in their company, if you don’t do this you simply lose advantage over competition. The first step towards building a brand in job portals is to tell your prospects why they should join your legal concern, whether its growth opportunity, exceptional work environment, flexible schedules, market reputation, monetary benefits, or an emphasis on employee appreciation. After all, selling a dream to work in your company before any interview is a step towards overall growth and development of your employees and company. This will not only build a brand for you on job posting site, but also in peer groups of people who apply or reach to your legal job ads.
