I just wanted to give a plug for Sara Kim at Yorkson Legal as a resource for recruiting. I first met Sara as a candidate in 2006 when she obtained a job for me, and she was thoroughly enjoyable to work with and showed real respect for me as a job seeker (not something I could say for every recruiter). As you know, our HR group and I recently worked with her to fill a Business Development Specialist role, and over 10 years later I found that she hasn’t changed.
What makes Sara unique is she is a door-knocker: she will make calls to clients and candidates to actively pursue leads instead of waiting for them to just fall in her lap. Out of the four candidates she sent me, two of them were in the top three most-qualified, including our first choice for the position (who eventually declined our offer).
She’s a real pleasure to work with, and will expend the shoe leather to find you candidates, so I’m just writing to encourage you to use her for staffing needs. She also doesn’t poach from her clients! In contrast, as you know I also contacted Tower Legal to help with the job search, and never heard from them again (although perhaps they sent through unsuitable candidates to you that you didn’t pass along). That’s the difference with Sara. Please feel free to forward this to your colleagues as you deem appropriate.
“Yorkson has great, quality lawyers. Their responsiveness is very good — we needed to make several adjustments to the job we requested with just a day or two notice and they were able to handle all of our requests. We were also able to get very specialized people – lawyers fluent in Korean.”
“I needed four paralegals immediately and they sent me people who were every bit as good as the people I find at job fairs. They’re terrific and I would use them again.”
“My experience with Yorkson has been that they are always prompt in responding to my requests and have only the best temporary help and the highest-quality permanent candidates available in the NY area. Everyone from the owner of the company to the contact who started the day I called for assistance knows the industry well enough to anticipate my specific needs and will go out of his or her way when I have a specific quality or type of experience that is more difficult to find. In short, Yorkson is the cream of the crop when it comes to permanent and temporary staffing.”
“My experience with Yorkson was very positive – everyone was very accommodating. They go the extra mile and get me people who are strong fits for my law firm. They are always available when I need them.”
“Yorkson understood our specific hiring needs better than anyone else, including the special technical and academic requirements of our practice. Then they worked tirelesslely to locate numerous candidates who matched these credentials. Now these candidates are some of the best in our group.”
I found Yorkson Legal responsive to our needs, providing experienced attorneys or paralegals to meet our exact description and they did this courteously and efficiently. I highly recommend them.
