Do you think all legal headhunters are more or less the same? Think again. Some spend too little time working on your behalf. Some have far better contacts than others. Some have more resources at their disposal. Some are simply more skilled than others.

It’s important for the job seeker to remember that in the legal field, as in many other fields, it’s the hiring firm that pays the headhunter’s fee, so the headhunter’s first loyalty is really to the firm. Therefore, candidates who don’t follow through are not going to get as much out of a headhunter as those who actively participate in the process. You can’t expect a search consultant, even a very good one, to do everything for you if you’re really serious about finding a new job.
