Susan Mendelsohn: A Strategy Driven Approach to Recruiting

In this episode, Steve Fretzin and Susan Mendelsohn discuss:

  • Susan’s strategy and relationship driven approach to recruiting. 
  • Mistakes and misconceptions have regarding recruiting and bringing in new lawyers. 
  • Being recruitable as a lawyer and what to look for when looking to move. 
  • How the pandemic has affected recruiting. 

 

Key Takeaways:

  • As a law firm, be very specific about what your needs are and identify what the opportunity is. 
  • Demonstrate that you are out, marketing your firm and yourself, and identifying opportunities and bringing in business. 
  • If you are not successful at your firm, evaluate if it is you or if it is your firm. 
  • As things start to return to normalcy and the pandemic winds down, there will be a lot of movement as lawyers and firms find the right fit. 

 

“I think the biggest mistake is not really identifying what the opportunity is, and being very specific about it: Why do you have that need? What is the opportunity for that person? Come to the table having something identifiable and exciting to that candidate. ” —  Susan Mendelsohn
