Hello there bees!!! I have just gotten an interview for a Recruiting position for a Legal Placement company. I have a law degree, so I know that end of it, but i’m looking for any/all advice on the Recruiting end of it. I am really excited about the position as it would allow me to use my degree – but in a non-traditional way. In my work now I recruit, train, and generally provide staffing needs for a small business. But I’m wondering if there are some industry tips that could help me improve my interview.

In this economy, I wouldn’t recommend it. Most of these positions are paid a very low base salary and then you get a percentage of the person you place at a job’s salary or a flat rate. Because of the economy, there aren’t as many jobs to place candidates in. A few of my friends from college who had been doing this (and being successful doing it) left because the economy put such a damper on their earning prospects. It’s a great job if you are good at it and good at networking when there are a lot of jobs available, but when the economy is bad, companies are on hiring freezes and people are being laid off, you may be setting yourself up for failure.
