We have some big plans for 2010 including the launch of our new job board. The goal is to move our job listings series¹ over there.

Right now, we’re reaching out to legal employers and asking them to join our Beta team. (In less nerdy terms, a team of brave trailblazers who are willing to post their legal positions on our job board. Basically, they post for free during our launch, receive discounts for all eternity, and are pampered with praise and adulation.)

Until we’re ready to fully transition over to the job board, we’ll continue to post jobs that we find here. Hey, we may as well get the firm’s attention, right? Show ‘em the awesome caliber of our readers. :-)

Also, to help keep you updated, we’ll push all job notifications to @RecruiterEsq (a newish account that’s now reserved for site announcements) as well as my personal account @mjsq.
