I think we’ve come a long way in a few short weeks.

Anyway, I’m trying to get the word out about the listings. How’s this for promotion?

Think about it

For $4, any lawyer, paralegal, or law firm professional can save time.

For $4, any law firm can save recruiting fees.

Download a list of all of the jobs law firms have recently posted on their website.

Current edition: BigLaw 200
Last edition: BigLaw 100
Next edition: “I wanna go in-house!”2

The BigLaw 100 & BigLaw 200 lists include all of the lateral associate and lateral partner openings that firms publish on their websites.  The lists also include most legal marketing, knowledge management, recruiting or career development, business development or practice support, and paralegal positions found on the websites.


My goal is to sell a total of 500 copies by July 31, 2010.

Checking In: Making Money, Am Law 200 Jobs, & AIIM Expo

Hey Folks, I apologize about my long absence.  Things have been a little hectic in my life.

Basically, I love what I do.  I love reading about the legal industry, keeping up-to-date with blogs and social media, passing on advice about job openings and reviewing resumes and cover letters.

…but I need to start making money.  (I have law student loans to pay!)

From the feedback I’ve heard, I think that I’m offering a useful service, especially with the Am Law listings.  Therefore, I’m putting the question out to you dear readers, how can I best monetize it?  What would be a fair price?  What would I need to change to charge?  (E.g., more consistent schedule, etc.)  Or, on the other side of things, how can I best market my job board?

Once I start taking on freelance clients, it’s hard for me to also maintain my own websites.  Unless I can figure out a way to crowdsource the funding for this site so that I can continue to produce and expand the content, I think the best option for me will be to dedicate my skills to one brand’s success (brand = law firm).

Your thoughts – in comments or in an e-mail (melissa at recruiteresq dot com) – are appreciated.

The Am Law 200 Jobs

I know that I’ve mentioned this before: I *am* working on them.  I’m also trying to figure out a better way to present them on the site without using Google Docs.  I figured out how to create a table with sorting capabilities on the front-end of my site.  No more logging in, going to external sites, etc.  With all of that work, however, I haven’t completely finished updating the Am Law 200 Jobs.  But maybe later tonight I’ll publish what I have – Am Law 200 Jobs (Firms beginning with A – H).

(Note*: I’ve also decided that I’ll post the Am Law job listings twice per year for the general public.  Registered users will have access to the archives of these public listings.)



I’m going to be blogging from the AIIM Expo over the next few days.  In case you haven’t checked it out, take a look at the site.  I’ll have a post later tonight about which talks I plan to see, which talks I want to see, and how I’m kinda bummed that I missed the pre-conference certificate sessions.  I went last year and I can highly recommend the Enterprise 2.0 certificate program and Hanns Kohler-Kruner as a teacher.  You can also take a look at when this course is offered other times through out the year at AIIM’s website.

For those in the Philly area, there’s a Tweetup this week.  You should all come out!

More later….

Round-Up: Am Law 200 Job Listings

UPDATE: I heard a few of you prefer Google Docs so I added a Google Docs version to the bottom of this post. If you haven’t told me which one you prefer, feel free to send an e-mail or leave a comment.
