Corporate Attorney; NYC; networking for a friend

An attorney friend of mine is looking to change jobs--she is a corporate secretary/corporate governance attorney in NYC. She's been an attorney for over 15 years and is very smart.

Any execs or attys out there that work at a public company? Ask your parents, they might know someone? She's looking in NYC, Westchester, CT.

Please, if you know of something, or if you know someone who might know someone, would you please let me know or ask around?

You know I rarely ask for anything; if I ever helped you, would you please help me back? If I haven't helped you, and you do this, you'll be able to count on me in the future...I'm very loyal like that!

Shopping around for a job for an attorney on e46fanatics makes her look desperate. You'd be doing her a better favor by NOT posting this ad. If she has that much experience then her competition should be willing to scoop her up quickly. Or go to a headhunter and let him do all the work.

It's a very special area of law, and you never know where a contact will come from.

I appreciate your taking the time to raise this concern--I reflected on it and she did also. It's not an ad; just looking for contacts.

is she bound to NYC? the legal market is very tough there, but plenty of jobs in other growing markets.

I suggest she have a recruiter as well.

She has a recruiter. She is currently working in NYC, and because she knows it's a tough market, figured the potential downside of letting me post this thread for her is mitigated by 'not having much to lose in the first place'!

As far as requests for pictures...she is beautiful.

Nice sig pic. And, fyi, if a lead comes from here that turns into a job, I'll tell her that she owes you all the pic you deserve.

And "Corporate Sec'y" is a legal function, held by an attorney, as opposed to the positions an 'exec assistant' might hold.

Negatory.
You can tell her that the job requires the utmost discretion. From both parties.
So, tell her to PM me. An introductory pic is required.

Well, you sort of can, and sort of why I wrote in the first place.

I know most readers can't help, but if all those who read one of my posts and got help, or a laugh were to ask around--their parents, maybe att'y friends-- if they know anyone highly placed in a public company...it wouldn't surprise me if there's a connection.

I've written a lot of posts...they used to be mostly helpful...we'll see if that counts for anything around here. Ask around...not far and widely for months...just ask someone a quick question.

She's really extraordinary, in many ways. A bump for her! (Thread title changed...maybe that will help.)

Free bump for you.

If she has a profile on LinkedIn with those specialities and key words in her profile, many recruiter will be looking and able to find her. It also helps if she has plenty of LinkedIn contacts. I had a friend with 500+ LinkedIn contacts who got laid off from a large company with rather old style technology and he found a job within four weeks or so after he posted that he was looking.

I am familiar and work with Corporate Secretaries and it is a specialty title that only one person per company has, but they usually have a staff of at least three or four doing that function at Fortune 200 and larger companies, and they process data from other attorneys throughout the world. Larger companies might have something that is challenging for her even if it does not have the full title and she might get the full title at some company. There are probably more companies that use that function in NYC/Westchester than anywhere else.

Thank you very much for this contribution. I've passed your comments along to her. As she's employed, I don't think she can publicly say she's looking, but I'm sure there's a way to leverage her LinkedIn contacts privately--she's probably done that, but if not, appreciate the reminder...and your other comments too!

Thanks!
