After a long duration of slack hiring, employers have stepped up their recruiting activities. The article titled, “Legal jobs on the docket for 2014” published on December 26 by Inside Counsel, clearly indicates that legal organizations, law firms and corporations will increasingly recruit lawyers through the year.

Legal Authority has introduced a new LinkedIn® optimization service for its members so that they can stay ahead of the game. This new service comes at absolutely no cost for Legal Authority members. With a boom in the new social recruiting trend, many employers in the legal industry are soon adopting this tool as the path forward to find the perfect hire. While Facebook, Twitter, XING, Google+, Viadeo, and BranchOut have created their niche as reputed social recruiting sites, LinkedIn® is the only site that has gathered maximum popularity as the world’s largest professional networking site. Undoubtedly, legal recruiters concentrate most of their social recruiting efforts here.

While other legal recruiting companies are also offering this service priced exorbitantly at around $1,000, Barnes aims to help people in their job search by offering great services at reasonable pricing to all Legal Authority members.
According to Harrison Barnes, Chief Executive Officer of Legal Authority, “Now employers are ‘googling’ potential employees a lot more than before. ‘Optimizing’ a LinkedIn® profile enables a potential interviewee to be found easily in top search results and put the best foot forward even before a personal interview is conducted.” While Legal Authority has been offering resume and cover letter services to all its members for years, it often pays out much more to its staff for revising these crucial documents, which amounts to more than the fees charged to its members. This new LinkedIn® optimization service is simply another step towards ensuring that the people’s job search time is used in the best possible manner.
Engaging Legal Authority’s LinkedIn® optimization services, job seekers can now prepare an impressive marketing narrative that will certainly get them more interviews.
