Popular legal Web site launches career service

FindLaw (www.findlaw.com), the most-visited legal Web site, recently launched a new job matching service for legal professionals that offers a more targeted and time-saving way for employers to search for qualified candidates and job seekers to search for employment opportunities in the legal industry. Located in FindLaw’s “manage your career” center for legal professionals (http://careers.findlaw.com/), FindLaw’s real-time job matching technology lets job seekers create and update their candidate profiles and employers post job requirements for free.

Powered by RealMatch, FindLaw’s career match area is unlike traditional job search sites because it automatically connects a candidate’s unique skills and preferences with job requirements posted by legal employers. FindLaw gives employers the ability to register and view candidate profiles at no cost based on their specific needs, while other sites require a fee without any guarantee of visibility with qualified candidates. In addition, employers receive the time-saving benefit of not having to weed through thousands of unqualified resumes.

The new service enables job seekers to submit their unique skills and job preferences efficiently and then be automatically notified when posted jobs match their requirements. Attorneys, paralegals, and legal secretaries searching for jobs can remain anonymous while exploring career opportunities or opt to allow prospective employers the ability to contact them if their experiences match the job qualifications.

“We felt it was important to have a resource specifically for legal professionals that can effectively target and unearth the best job candidate or job match,” said Stephen Noel, vice president of Portal and Online Marketing for FindLaw. “Since its launch, we are averaging approximately 100 new registrations per day, indicating to us there is a definite need for this service.”
