[Jobs] Round-Up of Am Law 100 Lateral Positions

Since the last round-up, there are 29 new jobs posted! These include a few coveted “alternative” arrangements such as an hourly position at Hunton & Williams in Austin and a practice support attorney opening at Reed Smith’s offices in Pittsburgh.

My guess for 2010? You’ll see a lot more of these positions. They are smart for firms, smart for clients, and smart for employees.

Note: To keep track of the changes, I’ve highlighted the new positions in green (money, baby, money!). If a firm removed one (1) position or more, I’ve highlighted the name of the firm in red.

Still looking for feedback. Also, still considering whether to make these updates solely available for newsletter subscribers (hey, it’s a lot of work! plus, my newsletters are fun and informative!). Thoughts in the comments, please!

If you’d like to sort by city or practice area, you may view it as a Google document. Under view, change the preference to list view.

This series features job posts from around the web.

RecruiterEsq posts directly to the link where the job was found. In addition, RecruiterEsq posts pertinent information here for readers to assess interest.

Please do not apply to jobs directly through RecruiterEsq.

Please e-mail melissa@recruiteresq.com if you would like to post a relevant job in the legal industry and/or would like a job that is posted here to be removed. Thank you.

At Alston, blogs seem to be based by practice group.  While we hate to be nitpickers, especially because Alston is the first firm with a number of blogs, the url of the blogs are not uniform.  Therefore, may not be a firm-wide effort.  On the other hand, the blogs are easy to find via the firm’s homepage.  Something that may or may not be worth commenting on is the substantive topics for the three blogs: are these “fads?” or are these (topics and blogs) here to stay?

Official podcasts (none)

Official webinars (+1)

The firm does host official firm webinars but these are a little bit more difficult to find.  We found a few by google searching Alston & Bird and webinar.  For this webinar, people had to contact the firm in order to register (i.e. people could not register online).
