Finding a new position as an attorney or hiring a new attorney in this legal market can be challenging. The job market is highly competitive, and for each job posted, there are many applicants. As a job seeker, applying to positions in a timely manner can be time-consuming and frustrating. Sending your resume into a blind posting can seem like going into a black hole, with no way to follow up. As an employer, sifting through resumes that are not appropriate for the position you posted can be equally frustrating.
As an attorney, your reputation is important. Sending your resume to multiple postings and ads may not be the first impression you want to make with a prospective employer. Using a legal recruiter, either for hiring or as your advocate can alleviate some of the stress involved in this process. A recruiter can present your resume professionally and to the appropriate firm or company. Legal recruiters, like the professionals you will find at Garcia Legal Search, will listen to your needs and place you with the firm best aligned with your professional and personal goals.
There are quite a few different methods of recruiting. At Garcia Legal Search, professionalism is our goal. We only send your resume to our clients with your express permission. This ensures that we have discussed the qualifications of the position thoroughly with you and that you agree with the submission.

We are proud to be the only provider of attorney recruitment in Florida to have truly designed our operations to be responsive to the needs of our individual candidates.

Law Firm Recruitment
The legal job market landscape is changing, and with that comes new methods in finding, interviewing, and onboarding potential candidates. Many firms are seeking both lawyers and paralegals, ready to interview, and in some cases, offering remote start for new hires.
Before contacting potential employers, you should reach out to a legal recruiter who will assist you in building a professional profile and someone who has deep roots within the legal community. Working with a recruiter increases your chances of finding a firm or company that aligns with your career goals.
Using our services, candidates can continue applying for opportunities, become comfortable with phone and video interviews, and use us as a trusted resource. Our legal consultants have ties within the community that facilitate our recruitment and placement process. We understand the shifting nature of the market and will work with you to clearly define your career goals.
When submitting your resume, be sure to include a professionally written bio mentioning your education, skills, and experience. Our legal recruiters will listen to your objectives and look for opportunities that match those goals. Also, our team creates reports on firms in your practice area, which includes financial, staffing and diversity information.
Finding the right candidate or position on your own is not easy, and maintaining that relationship can be even more difficult. That is why, at Garcia Legal Search, we keep in touch with you after a placement is made. We will make sure that both the candidate and firm are satisfied, even after the guarantee period expires.
Once a job offer is made, your legal recruiter provides all the necessary information for you to make an informed decision. Our team of recruiters performs background and respective Bar checks on all candidates to reassure clients we properly vet our candidates.
