Hiring Trends from Those Seeking Jobs
In speaking recently with friends who are still in transition and looking for jobs, it’s clear that while there has not been full economic recovery in the Philadelphia legal market. In fact, the word from the trenches is that there are a few trends:
- People are getting some interviews, here and there; but
- The job opportunities have tended to be specialized fields (ERISA work, insurance coverage, eDiscovery, etc.) rather than general commercial litigation.
So, the moral of the story is that having some experience or knowledge of a specialty rather than just general litigation is quite valuable in this current hiring climate.
