Fewer than half of the graduates at 66 schools—one-third of all ABA-accredited schools—were working in full-time, long-term legal jobs.
Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) December 06, 2013
The job market for prospective lawyers today is seemingly bleak. According to an article published in ABA Journal on April 1, 2013, “only 55.1 percent of all 2012 law school graduates were employed in full-time, long-term lawyer jobs” as of Feb 15, 2013. The author, Mark Hanson, also points out that “fewer than half of the graduates at 66 schools—one-third of all ABA-accredited schools—were working in full-time, long-term legal jobs.”
While these statistics certainly could deter would-be lawyers from pursuing a legal degree, people who have been in this field for many years are also having a difficult time finding a job. In order to help those in need, there are services now available to help attorneys. One of these is LawCrossing Concierge, founded by Harrison Barnes, who is also the CEO of LawCrossing. LawCrossing Concierge offers legal job seekers assistance with the job search. Each member of LawCrossing Concierge has his/her resume reviewed by Barnes, and following his recommendations, his hand-picked team of recruiters then identify and apply for jobs that best fit each client.
Not only is the hard work of the job search done for them, but using this service will help attorneys find lesser advertised jobs that they might not have the opportunity to find on their own; the jobs for smaller firms are less publicly advertised. This gives users of LawCrossing Concierge a leg up on the competition.
Currently, LawCrossing is making this service available to job seekers for only $299 per month. This is an introductory price that the company has announced in order to get the word out about this program, and to help as many people as possible to take advantage of this offering.
