Down to earth, candid, and diligent, Alvaro proved himself to be a much needed and invaluable voice of confidence for me, in what can sometimes be a stressful and tumultuous career shift.

Pearl captured all of my concerns about moving firms and made sure to address them in a transparent and efficient way with my new employer. At all times, I felt that Pearl conveyed my interests to the new firm in a thoughtful and professional manner. This set the tone for smooth and enjoyable conversations with the new employer. Pearl made me feel extremely comfortable in this process and the unease of moving firms gave in thanks to her professionalism and helpful advice.

Leading Law Firm
“Randi and her team did a great job listening to what I was looking for in pairing me with an employer who needed someone with my skills and abilities. I like that Randi and her team submitted my resume to positions that I was not only qualified for but that I found challenging and met my work culture goals. I wanted to get away from a life of trying to meet billable target hours. I was looking for work life balance in a challenging in-house role. Life After Law exceeded my expectations in pairing me with an organization with a great work culture that was a perfect fit for my unique background! Randi and her team really took the time to get to know me and what I was looking for. Now that I’m in my new role I know Life After Law also took the time to find out what my new employer was looking for because my skills are a perfect fit for my current role. Life After Law is definitely the best recruitment team I’ve ever worked with!”
“Working with Randi at Life After Law was a very positive and helpful experience. She asked thoughtful questions to help get to know me, my career aspirations, and my skill levels, but more than that she was honest with me as to where I may need to shore up or further explain my experiences to show that I was the right person for the job I applied for. Because of this, I felt like when she encouraged me and told me I would be a good fit that she was being honest and not just trying to fill a role without regard to what would be best for me or the client. I was able to ask questions and get speedy responses, every time. Randi was a human being in the midst of a difficult job search and I am very grateful to her for that”.
