Most, if not all, legal professionals use job search websites to find that next great employment opportunity. These websites are invaluable in so far that they inform on available jobs and communicate on how to apply for them. A frustrating aspect though is that there are tons of job search websites out there and it’s hard to know which ones you can trust and rely upon.
LAW DAWGS seeks to make your job search richer and more rewarding. This is why we recently took tallies on which job search websites are the best for legal professionals. Dim the lights for the results are in. We know there are other site out there, but candidates and legal professionals find the following sites to be the cream of the crop.
Our company website was created with our candidates’ interests in mind. The site contains a host of great resources to assist in any person’s job hunt. The site also contains the Job Portal, which posts real employment opportunities for legal positions across the nation. These opportunities are for all legal professionals – attorneys, paralegals, legal support staff, administrative assistants, etc.
This website conveniently consolidates many job listings that are found across the Web. Legal positions are provided for all types of legal professionals and candidates can search for openings that relate to specific practice areas. An excellent feature is that job seekers can save employment searches and positions fitting search terms get emailed directly to them.
LawJobs.com posts opportunities for lawyers, paralegals and legal support staff. These professionals can search for jobs by: keywords, locations, practice areas, and employment categories (e.g., “attorney,” “clerk,” and “consultant”). The site also includes a variety of resources that answer employment related questions.
This site advertises legal job openings found throughout the world. It posts opportunities for lawyers, law students, and legal staff members. LawCrossing also provides information regarding legal salaries and it includes a section on law firm reviews.
This one has been around for a while, but it’s still considered a go-to source for many legal professionals. Candidates can search for openings by keyword, industry, salary, location, job category, degree and other search criteria.
Like CareerBuilder.com, Monster.com has assisted job hunters for years. Similarly, just like CareerBuilder.com, it remains as a reliable job board for all members of the legal industry. Candidates can search for opportunities while also having the ability to post resumes and gain advice on company cultures, scholarships, online degrees and careers (in general).
Many of us know LinkedIn as a popular networking tool. Since networking is an excellent way to land a legal gig, we must include it within our best job search website results. The site also does allow users to set up job alerts notifying candidates when opportunities of interest get posted. Users can also review companies and gain industry insights by joining groups and participating in conversations.
This website is specifically designed for those legal professionals focused on government jobs. USAJOBS posts openings with various state and federal governmental entities. Candidates can search for positions by using locations, keywords, agencies, series, and/or occupations.
Please keep in mind that any successful job search will utilize most, if not all of, the above websites. You simply cannot hope that the constant monitoring of one site will get you the results you’re after. Be diligent in your efforts and conduct multiple website searches to generate the best results. Oh, and one more thing…contact us with any questions.
