Flo Recruit: A Winning Case for Legal Talent
A SaaS solution helping streamline the recruitment process for legal professionals
Flo Recruit’s modern software solution enhances the hiring process for law firms and law students.
Despite the 1.3 million active lawyers in the U.S., recruiting in the legal profession remains expensive and fiercely competitive. Attracting and retaining talent is critical to a firm’s success. Yet, law firms are underserved by inefficient and burdensome applicant tracking systems that are outdated and largely manual, making it difficult to seamlessly integrate with law school resume databases and career services.
“Recruiting and retaining both legal and other professional staff may prove to be among the biggest post-pandemic challenges confronting law firms.” — Thomson Reuters, 2022 Report on the State of the Legal Market.
Alumni Ventures portfolio company Flo Recruit is addressing the need for better recruiting software within the law sector. The company’s vertical SaaS software solution for recruiting and hiring lawyers provides end-to-end solutions for law firms — including sourcing, scheduling, interviewing, and applicant tracking — all in one easy-to-use platform.
The Verdict? Vertical SaaS
Flo Recruit’s modern recruiting solution is designed to replace the current time-consuming and inefficient manual processes most firms use. The company offers features such as resume parsing, automated scheduling, candidate tracking, in-person and digital job fairs, and data collection, allowing firms to focus on the most qualified candidates.
Flo Recruit also provides a law-firm-to-law-school data sync that automatically sources candidate information and materials — saving law firms hours of manual input. Additionally, the company benefits individual candidates by allowing them to track their recruiting process with firms in a single dashboard showing events, applications, interviews, feedback, and recruitment stages.
