Recruiting Process

As a professional staffing firm, it is our job to maintain a constant stream of qualified candidates and potential job seekers. Through our extensive networking, online and print advertising, and involvement with professional legal associations, JurisTemps is proud to offer its clients access to top legal talent.

JurisTemps’ recruiting database offers an unlimited capacity for both active and inactive candidates, and further enables our recruiters to stay on the cutting edge of legal staffing. Through continuous networking efforts, JurisTemps also offers access to a number of passive job seekers who may not be easily found despite countless job postings and numerous classified ads. Our recruiters will respond quickly to your request with qualified candidates meeting your specified criteria. Legal staffing and recruitment is our full-time job and we know we are only as good as the talent we place!

How Does JurisTemps Recruit Its Talent?

We Offer:

JurisTemps utilizes a variety of recruitment methods. In addition to direct recruitment, JurisTemps frequently advertises its positions in a variety of legal and non-legal publications and utilizes both online ads and print format. We recruit by means of personal referral, the internet, and professional associations. Our job seeker services and resources increasingly attract a number of out-of-state candidates interested in relocation.

How Does JurisTemps Implement Its Screening Process?

Because our recruiters know that JurisTemps is only as good as the talent we place, we take great care in applicant screening and skill assessment. In addition to careful resume review, each of our candidates meets via phone or in-person with a member of our recruiting staff to discuss work history, job transitions, legal conflicts, key skills, strengths and weaknesses. Employment references and state bar licensure are checked by recruiters, and software testing is available for secretarial and paralegal candidates. All applicants for temporary hire are required to submit a list of three professional references, a driver's license and a social security card. Additional background checks (including criminal, academic, credit, drug-screening, driving record/motor vehicle, etc.) are available at special rates upon client request.
