How can attorney candidates nimbly navigate a global job market? Most high-value legal positions are obtained through legal placement organizations. But not all are created equal. Many simply advocate for the law firms and corporations that pay their placement commissions, with little consideration of optimal fit, long-term career satisfaction, compensation structures and other matters vital to attorney candidates.
