I would like to take a few minutes to tell you about something that can be extremely beneficial to your legal career. You are literally one of the first people I am writing to, and I really think you're going to like what I have to say. I am the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of EmploymentScape, a corporation based in Pasadena, CA. I have hundreds of employees and run several successful companies. At last count, I had 15 offices across the United States.

I want to tell you about a service that can help you change your life. It is that good!

Back in the year 2001, when, after 9/11, tons of Internet companies went out of business, attorneys all over the United States got laid off. When attorneys lose their jobs, it can be very difficult for them to find new ones -- next to impossible, in fact. The legal profession is very insular. At that time, I was a legal recruiter and wanted to find a way to ensure that all of these unemployed attorneys found positions. Finding a way of doing this took a lot of effort and a lot of money.

I started a company that monitors the hiring needs of every single law firm and corporation in the United States. Essentially, what we do at this company (which is called LawCrossing) is manually (and using spiders) visit every single website that is a source of legal employment listings (more than 250,000 websites in all) each week and then post the jobs we find on our own site -- at no charge to employers.

Once this site got started, it grew very quickly, and now the world is very different for attorneys looking for new positions. LawCrossing was ranked 72nd on the 2007 Inc. 500 list of the fastest growing companies in the US, and presently, there are more than 140,000 legal jobs on the site. When an attorney needs a new job or is interested in learning about the market or simply wants to keep abreast of what is going on, he or she uses this site. The site has gotten tens of thousands of attorneys jobs, and every day, we get numerous testimonials from satisfied members!

Let me tell you what makes this site so special:
  1. LawCrossing has the largest collection of legal jobs -- over 140,000 -- and offers a 7-day free trial to new members.

  2. We monitor about 250,000 employer websites, job boards, newspapers, publications, and every possible resource to find all the available jobs out there for you. The database technology to support these efforts costs more than $5 million alone.

  3. The difference between LawCrossing and, for example, is that LawCrossing has every single legal job out there -- not just the ones that employers are paying $350 to Monster to advertise.

  4. As another benefit to LawCrossing, most of the job listings on the site do not bring in lots of applications, because they are usually buried in corporate websites' employment sections. When you visit LawCrossing, you're seeing jobs that a lot of people have not yet seen.

  5. When you apply for positions on LawCrossing, employers will most likely think that you saw their open positions on their websites, and this will make them think you are very interested in them specifically, which will make them much more receptive to you.
I'm going to be honest with you. I have tons of money invested in LawCrossing, and I know it can change your life. When you visit LawCrossing as one of our subscribers, you will be blown away by what you find. You will likely find the employer quite receptive if you apply for one of the positions we post. Being a part of this site could be one of the best experiences of your life. I think it will be.

I encourage you to visit LawCrossing today, and I sincerely hope you will tell others once you have visited the site and seen what it can do for you. I'm excited for you and wish you all the best.
