Twas the week before Christmas...and legal hiring continues!

Posted by Momentum Search Partners on Thu, Dec 18, 2014

Typically we see a significant downturn in new openings between Thanksgiving and Christmas.  The slowdown was not as drastic as it has been in many years past; in fact, there wasn't much of a slow down at all.   Here it is, just days before Christmas, when legal hiring typically comes to a complete stop.  But we have four new openings:  associate, paralegal, legal assistant and paralegal, in Dallas, Houston, and Austin, respectively.  One is with a law firm and three are in-house.  Hopefully this portends continued strong hiring for 2015!

The Worst Resume Summary

Posted by Momentum Search Partners on Mon, Dec 01, 2014

The end of the year is when attorneys and other legal professionals start updating their resumes and thinking about job opportunities that might present themselves in the new year.  Before you update your resume, please read an article by J.T. O'Donnell at Careeralism called "The Worst LinkedIn Summary."  We couldn't agree more with everything he says in this article, but it also applies to resumes, maybe even more so, as resumes are much more important than Linked In bios.  (Despite all the hype you hear about Linked In and how important it is to the hiring process these days, the resume is still what's circulated within companies and relied upon by hiring managers and recruiters - not your Linked In profile!)
