Experience Using a Recruiter to LEAVE law?

Postby BayCat24 » Sat Sep 02, 2017 6:58 pm

I know the pipe dream of leaving the legal profession altogether gets discussed a lot on here, but has anyone enlisted the help of a recruiter to do so?

I know there are recruiting companies for tech industry sales/marketing jobs (e.g. Betts recruiting) but what I would be looking for is someone that can help start the process of figuring out what jobs I am (a) interested in and (b) capable of crafting a narrative to sell myself for despite having 0 non-legal work experience.

Anyone have any experience doing this?

You need a coach, not a recruiter. Recommend Melissa Llarena. Went to b-school with her. She's great.
