Why Networking Is So Important For Lawyers - And How To Do ItWhy Networking Is So Important for Lawyersand How to Do It

Remember your first day in elementary school, and all the new things – taking a school bus, meeting new kids from other neighborhoods, to say nothing of lots of new rules? As a lawyer, it’s been 20 years or more since your first school days, but those beginnings can still teach you plenty about adapting to unfamiliar settings and new challenges – like attracting clients to build your law practice.

That all-important grade-school concept of “getting along, is now known as “networking.” Let’s be clear at the start: your primary goal in networking won’t usually be signing up new business for your law firm on the spot. Instead, it’s more like the advantages you may remember if your grade-school classmates decided you were worth their time getting to know. Once you passed that test, you were on your way to turning new acquaintances into friends.

Something similar happens in practicing law: a new client may get referred to your criminal law practice by a law school friend whose firm only handles civil cases, because you’re seen as reliable and knowledgeable. (It also shows law school is another place networking can pay dividends down the line.) Similarly, new business can result when a social contact from a church or charity asks you about a legal problem a friend or relative is having.

While your firm will doubtless employ other marketing efforts, word of mouth is a powerful tool. (more…)

What Are Some Things To Consider If You Enlist A Staffing Service?

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

What Are Some Things To Consider If You Enlist A Staffing Service?With news of the economy slowly rebounding, many economists are wondering where people are being hired to get a better understanding of where the economy may be going. Surprisingly, what some are finding out is that many of the jobs that are out are in the temporary market. In fact, temporary staffing has gone up more than fifty percent in the four years since the Great Recession, with seventeen million people total employed as temporary workers, contract workers, freelancers or consultants. And it appears that this trend isn’t going away any time soon.

Many companies are not as well off as they were pre-recession. They need the manpower, but the ability to hire a full-time worker just isn’t there yet. They may not be able to afford the benefits that come with full-time employment; nor may they be so trusting of the economy given the potential of other bubbles bursting and political gridlock in Washington. For these reasons, companies have embraced temporary and contract work.

However, you might not think it but some workers might prefer this system as well. If you are in school, for example, you might only need a job in the short-term. Temporary staffing agencies can help find these students work on their respites. In addition, many people, especially Millennial and other younger workers, may not want the commitment that comes with full-time employment. They may be looking to move on whenever they feel necessary, and temporary/contract work can provide the freedom they need in their endeavors.

Whatever the reasons for your desire to hire temporary workers, you’re going to need the help of a temporary staffing agency to ensure that you get the right people for the job. Unfortunately, a job search for the right candidate could take several months, costing you time and money that could be best spend elsewhere.

A temporary staffing service can help you find the right candidate, but how do you find the right agency? Here are some things to keep in mind: (more…)
