3 Ways You’re Sabotaging Your Recruiting Efforts
Hiring the right people is about more than listing your job openings – it’s about leveraging your recruiting resources so you can attract the best talent. Unfortunately, there are many ways that law firms sabotage their recruiting efforts. Here are a few examples:
- You list legal jobs on non-legal job boards. Attorneys looking for work don’t go to general job boards first, they go to legal industry job boards, such as the Leopard Solutions Job Board. If you want to get the attention of the best attorneys in the industry focus on legal specific job boards to promote your open positions.
- You hire for skills only and not fit. One of the biggest problems some law firms have with new hires is that they don’t fit the firm culture. If you’re focusing only on the skills required for the job, you’re missing out on making sure that you’re hiring attorneys who are a good fit for your firm culture.
- You’re using outdated methods. Technology is transforming the legal industry. If you want to have the best chances of recruiting top attorney talent, you must leverage technology that can help you meet your goals. Just because old methods worked in the past doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try out new methods that can help you do an even better job.
- You have vague job descriptions. When you’re recruiting for an open position at your law firm, you need job descriptions that give specific information about what the job requires. Vague job descriptions won’t attract any candidates who are the right fit for the position.
Don’t sabotage your recruiting efforts, do what’s necessary to improve your hiring process.
