We want all of our valued candidates to know that we are here for them during COVID-19. This is true for all legal professionals – legal secretaries, paralegals, attorneys, legal support staff members, and office support staff members. We hope you are all well and staying healthy.
We are 100% operational and working on a remote basis. We are currently recruiting and interviewing candidates and looking to fill many open positions. We also anticipate that these opportunities will only increase as Washington and the nation make plans to re-open the economy.
Communication is truly key during this difficult time. We will continue to update our Career Portal so that all of our candidates can: (1) stay up to date with all of the positions we are staffing for; and (2) apply for any open position that they are interested in. In turn, we ask that you provide us with a brief description of your status. How are you faring? Are you currently seeking work? Has your employment status changed since we were last in contact?
We know that optimism sometimes stands at the outskirt during present times. But we are confident that the legal industry will emerge from this pandemic in a better and more powerful position than when it first struck. Please see Forbes’ outlook here: COVID-19 Will Turbocharge Legal Industry Transformation. We are hopeful that, even if we do not have an opportunity to meet your particular needs now, we will have one in the days and weeks ahead.
Further, it may sound surprising to hear, but now is a perfect opportunity for our candidates to improve their marketability. For example, legal professionals can use any ongoing downtime to:
- Update their cover letters and resumes,
- Complete CLEs,
- Practice interview skills,
- Build connections by checking in with colleagues and mentors to make sure they are doing well, and
- Review the ABA’s “Coronavirus (COVID-19) Articles and Resources.”
With 30 years of experience and a national and international reach, we know and understand the legal industry. Although it may now seem hard to comprehend, we will get past this.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions that you may have; and, visit our website to learn of the new opportunities we are working to fill. Please stay healthy and optimistic, and look for a way to help those in need.
