M&D Elite Performance Screening System™
Most legal placement screening is done over a short phone call or series of emails and focuses on the resume. Once candidates are selected, they are generally screened in-person for “fit.” While the resume is a decent starting point, research shows that resumes and “fit” type interviews are poor predictors of job performance. While this research is generally known, time constraints, lack of access to resources and historical hiring practices have kept many firms and legal departments from taking advantage of hiring science.
We are revolutionizing how law firms and in-house legal departments can screen and select candidates to minimize the time required for the search and to maximize the chances of hiring the best talent for the opportunity. We developed a proprietary screening and hiring system with our in-house PhD and Certified Executive Coach. This unique system draws on a synthesis of significant findings in performance, strengths, and personality research applied to legal services.
