The increased competition among firms vying for the best and brightest talent is forcing firms to shift their recruiting efforts to a more strategic and focused approach
Washington, DC (Vocus) March 9, 2010
Recognizing an opportunity for law firms to leverage social networking to enhance their recruiting efforts, agencyQ, a full-service digital marketing and technology firm, has unveiled Q’edIn, its private social networking platform to help firms connect with their incoming associates and stay engaged with alumni. With Q’edIn, firms will be positioned to recruit and retain the best new talent and streamline the recruiting process. Additionally, Q’edIn will allow firms to embrace social networking in a secure environment tailored to their recruiting and alumni needs.
Known for years as a technology-focused interactive shop for such clients as the Brookings Institute, Georgetown University Law Center and the US Department of Energy, agencyQ is committed to helping legal professionals address their challenges and turn ideas into actions. A testament to the results agencyQ achieves on behalf of its clients, in 2009 Q’s work was honored with an Interactive Media Award, an International Academy of Visual Arts W³ Award and an Education Software Review Award.
“The increased competition among firms vying for the best and brightest talent is forcing firms to shift their recruiting efforts to a more strategic and focused approach,” explains Brad Heidemann, agencyQ’s Executive Vice President of Strategy. “Q’edIn has been designed specifically for law firms and will enable attorneys to improve their ability to connect, engage and strengthen relationships.”
As Summer Associate programs evolve, law firms must stand apart from the competition by demonstrating innovation and a desire to make an investment in their future leaders. The breadth of agencyQ’s strategy, creative design and technology experience enables Q’edIn to deliver an integrated solution for law firms to not only attract and retain the best talent, but also streamline processes to be more efficient and save money. Q’edIn will help firms to engage with their Summer Associates before they step foot in the firm and foster a connection to encourage interaction and familiarity.
Customized for firms based on their needs, Q’edIn offers a secure, controlled environment for professional networking, project management, industry news and more. Now law firms can embrace all that social networking and modern technology has to offer with a safe, customized platform.
Legal recruiters will have the opportunity to learn more about Q’edIn at the vendor fair for the Washington Area Legal Recruitment Administrators Association (WALRAA) on March 16, 2010, where agencyQ will serve as a sponsor.
