Job Advertising

No matter how loyal a criminal solicitor is they all seem to check the job pages in the Law Society Gazette. As the Gazette comes as part and parcel of a practicing certificate that all solicitors are forced to buy each year all practicing solicitors get the Gazette.

Last week my firm decided to advertise for some positions in the crime department. The Human Resources department in the firm I work for seems to have a mind of it's own. After creating an aesthetically pleasing advert they then placed the advert amongst the other corporate advertisers. Everyone who works in legal aid avoids the flash and glossy looking adverts in the Gazette because they know all the legal aid positions are advertised in the rear of the Gazette under the normal black and white text ads.

I wonder how many applicants we will get from our badly placed advert?
