WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT SHUART

JOB SEEKER FAQs

  • Unfortunately, we typically can’t help new graduates as our clients only contact us for lateral hires. But if you have any questions about the market, feel free to call for advice on your search or the future of your career. We remember what it’s like to be starting out and are happy to point you in the right direction.
  • When you work with Shuart, the benefits are many. We partner with hundreds of law firms and corporations throughout Louisiana, Texas, and the Gulf Coast region. As a result, we can give you access to positions that may be unadvertised and unavailable through other channels. But the real differentiator? We get to know you. The real you. So our matches are more targeted and more proven to result in a hire. In today’s competitive job market, you need every advantage in your corner. One that has deep roots in your job market. One that will coach you on your resume and interview skills. One that will get you the right interviews and help you negotiate fair compensation. A recruiter you can wholly trust.
  • No. We will never charge job seekers for our services.
  • As we only operate by the highest ethical standards, Shuart has a defined process for assisting candidates in finding a new position. All information is kept confidential, and your resume will only be submitted to firms that we’ve discussed with you. To learn more about our NALSC-approved process, click here.

  • Temp-to-hire describes a temporary assignment that has the potential to turn into a permanent position. It’s also known as a “working interview.” Sometimes employers are unsure of their actual long-term needs—this buys them time. Sometimes they have had difficulty finding the right candidates—this gives you both the chance to try each other out. If you fulfill your obligations as an employee, and the employer is interested in utilizing your services on a more permanent basis, the permanent position is yours. We only recommend accepting a temp-to-hire offer if you are not presently employed.
  • Of course. This is your career and if you are not interested in a position, decline! We will help you refuse the offer with the highest degree of professionalism and, with your feedback, we will continue to pursue positions that meet your experience, skills and preferences.
