|Frequently Asked Questions|
Question: Will Pemberton keep my search for a new job confidential?
Answer: Yes. Pemberton recruiters recognize that most candidates do not want their current employer to know that they are considering alternative employment. Pemberton recruiters respect that situation and will not reveal your interest in considering something new inappropriately.
Question: Where will Pemberton submit my resume?
Answer: Only where you authorize. Wewill not submit your resume to any prospective employer unless you have given us your express approval to make such a submission. We understand that you do not want your resume floating around unnecessarily, and we respect that.
Question: Does my resume have to be one page?
Answer: Only if your career warrants it. The traditional wisdom learned by every law student is that your resume should not be more than a single page. That is not a hard and fast rule. Lawyers who recently graduated from law school probably should be able to summarize their career on a single page, perhaps with an addendum or representative transactions or lawsuits. More experienced lawyers, however, certainly can expand their resumes to two pages, and can provide additional information in a list of representative matters. Keep in mind that a resume should be clean, easy-to-read, and provide a brief summary of your career.
Question: Does a candidate have to pay a fee to work with a Pemberton recruiter?
Answer: No. Our fees are paid by the law firm or company who hires our candidates. We do not have any arrangements where candidates pay fees for any of our services.
Question: What is outplacement?
Answer: Outplacement services offer individuals whose positions have been eliminated with support and services to assist them in finding their next opportunity. Traditionally, outplacement focused on high-level executives, although the service has expanded to cover all levels of employees. Most outplacement services apply a step-by-step approach for assisting the employee in the process of securing new employment.
