Like everything in life, there are some excellent recruiters out there, some decidedly average and some awful ones. The problem that you have as a candidate is trying to decide which one’s which, when choosing someone to help you with your next career move. Sometimes it is difficult to tell from just from looking at an advert or website.
Looking before you leap is fundamental to your training as a lawyer. Do you check the credentials and background of the recruitment consultants you are engaging with and entrusting your next career move to? Maybe you should. Would you want someone with no previous legal experience advising you, or someone with a legal background and significant legal recruitment experience?
You really need to speak to, or meet with, a recruiter in order to establish if it is someone you think you can work with and trust your personal details and career to. Rather than deal with lots of different recruiters you are better placed selecting a recruiter you like and have a rapport with.
