Their call seemed unsolicited, but they clearly have a copy of my resume. I arranged a preliminary skype interview, but I'm not sure how legit this organization is and I'm very wary of scams. At the very least, I will definitely not provide them with any very personal info like bank info or SSN.
Website has existed since at least 2007.
Archived versions of the site show no significant changes that would indicate is has been hacked. http://web.archive.org/web/*/searchpointny.com
They have been incorportaed in NY since 2005: link
Google warns their site may have been hacked.
They said they often acquire resumes via Craigslist, and their call to me seemed unsolicited.
They wouldn't say what law firm they were recruiting for, or any they've worked with in the past (though I understand this).
The phone number on their website appears to be a personal number. When I called and asked about SearchPoint, they immediately hung up. (However, the number that called me is identical up to the last two digits, and the person I spoke with seemed authentic and was able to answer pointed questions about their business).
Claims to recruit for a "top 20 firm," but in my experience these firms tend to recruit directly.
They don't seem to recruit through universities.
So do you think this is legit? Worth pursuing? I suppose I don't have much to lose so long as I don't reveal critical privae information. Let me know what you think.
