As the Firmwide Recruiting Manager, she wanted to make sure that on-campus recruiting events were executed perfectly, and that both attorneys and students were maximizing their time during the recruitment process.
“One of our team’s big goals is to use our time and students' time efficiently. Being efficient provides us with more time to truly connect with students and give them an authentic look at who we are and what it’s like to practice here."
In the past, Leah and her team used paper and pen to track and record every aspect of the registration and check-in for a recruiting event. After the event, they'd decipher the hand-written sign-in sheet--hoping there were no mistakes--then send follow up emails to attendees.
“We’ve saved about 4 hours per event since switching to Flo Recruit, and that’s a conservative estimate. And since the sign-in process is all digital now, we don’t get bounce backs from our follow up emails.”
With Flo Recruit, Akin Gump enables candidates to pre-register for events, and when candidates arrive, they check them in on Flo Recruit using their computers or mobile phones. Additionally, when a candidate arrives who didn’t pre-register, the recruiting team can easily add the candidate to the database and automatically send them a reminder to complete the rest of their information later, or the candidate can add themselves to the event on the spot by scanning a QR code and completing a questionnaire on their phones.
What's more, the attorneys on Leah's team are loving their experience with Flo Recruit. They get instant access to student information after an event is over, allowing them to seamlessly leave feedback on candidates. Now, Leah and her team are getting exactly what they need from attorneys during the recruitment process.
“Our attorneys have really gotten on board. A lot of our more junior associates still have the recruiting process fresh in their minds, so they see how valuable it is for our company to use a tool like Flo Recruit. Attorneys at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld are excited to be part of the process now.”
Leah and her team were able to transition from their old paper and pen tools to Flo Recruit in fewer than nine days, thanks to the support they received during the implementation process from the Flo Recruit team.
“We had a great customer service experience with Flo Recruit. We knew exactly what steps we needed to take to get up and running quickly, and all our team's questions and feedback received immediate answers.”
Now that they have Flo Recruit in place, Leah and her team feel more prepared than ever to plan and execute successful recruiting events with ease.
“Making sure that you’ve checked all the boxes helps all of us at Akin Gump sleep better at night. Somehow the Flo Recruit team has condensed a 45-year law recruiting career into this software. It’s exceeded all our expectations.”
