No. It is typically better to apply through a more professional channel. A friend can merely submit your resume to the recruitment coordinator (or sometimes managing partner) and then the recruitment process begins and will mirror the same circumstances as if you submitted your resume on your own. RainMaker is known throughout the legal community for having top talent and as such we can use our connections at a firm or organization to increase your chances of securing an interview. We will also regularly follow up with the firm or organization and keep you informed throughout the recruitment process. More importantly, most clients like to keep candidates at arm’s length throughout the recruitment process. Clients respect a recruiter’s unbiased opinion of the candidates and are more comfortable asking recruiters direct questions about specific candidates.
