For those of you seeking a dynamic new job:

Do not use a resume that is “one size fits all”. Tailor your resume to the job description. Employers will not imagine that you have had the right responsibilities for the job if it is not on the resume.

For those of you seeking a top candidate:

Don’t waste your time with what you think are “behavioral” questions such as: If you were an animal, what would you be? Or, who would you most like to have dinner with?” We are not psychologists and really, can you determine whether the candidate is great if they answer: “ I sure would love to be an porcupine?”

Recruiting Tip #2

For those of you seeking a fantastic new position:

Put your profile and current resume on LinkedIn and make sure it is up-to-date and matches your resume line for line. The first thing potential employers do is get the resume and then run to LinkedIn to see if it matches. If you don’t have a LinkedIn profile, you are likely to be looked upon as behind the times.

For those of you seeking only the best candidates:

Once we get back to the office: Before the interview, observe the candidate in the lobby. Are they looking around to get a feel for the firm? Or, do they have their heads buried in a magazine and not observing what’s going on. You want candidates interested and motivated.

A bit of wisdom: You may not find the job or candidate in the time frame you want – but you will eventually find what you want. Patience…..

I really enjoy working with this company. I’ve been working directly with Brett and he’s awesome. Super responsive and works hard to find something for you. He also doesn’t give up on you so if something ends up not working out he’ll get right back to trying to find you something. I’ve really felt supported every step of the way and recommend Estrin Legal Staffing 100%.

I can't say enough good things about this staffing company, and in particular Madeline Weissman. She was more thorough and organized than any other recruiter I have worked with in the past. She spelled out everything to be successful during the interview process to make it super easy to be a successful candidate. Do not hesitate to reach out to them (specifically to Madeline!) or to apply for any openings Estrin posts. Thank you Madeline for being so on top of everything!!
