Law firms that want to win over prize clients need to win the competition for employees who are most qualified and best able to provide the outstanding service that those clients demand.
The first step in winning that battle is the recruiting process itself, where courtship skills and the observance of professional protocal are critical.
Good people usually have multiple choices to make among prospective employers, and they are often concerned that failures to communicate adequately during the courtship phase do not bode well for the long-term employment relationship.
Thus, lawyers and law firms who are seeking to hire “the best and the brightest” might want to implement “best practices” in recruiting communications. For a look at some of the best and the worst practices through the lens of a prospect, check out this posting on the Marquette University Law School faculty blog.
