Recruiters faced a lot of uncertainty in 2020 but according to LinkedIn data the legal market has experienced the strongest rebound in hiring.

“My biggest tip would be to think Like a Candidate – What is most important to them during a job search? How can you make the application process simpler and easier for candidates to find information and apply?

Often recruiters make candidates jump through too many hoops to make it on to the shortlist – provide a cover letter, register on dedicated ATS system, do not exceed 400 words on description etc…

All these hoops will drastically effect your application conversion rates and will limit your potential talent pool if users are put of jumping in.”
