Good Help is Hard to Find: How to Hire Firm MVPs

We have a motto at DLE Court Reporters that if work isn’t fun, you’re not playing on the right team. We go to great lengths to add quality go-getters with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to our team, and our clients benefit tremendously.

Regardless of the size of your firm, there are ways to find professionals that won’t just fill an open position but become an integral part of your team’s success and growth. That’s always been our paramount goal, and we’re happy to share our secrets to our success with you.

  • Assess your needs. This is the time to get specific and craft an effective job description that includes the role’s demands, the skill set and personality attributes required, and the relevant prior experience necessary.
  • Ask the right questions. More importantly, stick to the questions you’ve compiled for this particular job slot. Many times, candidates can present themselves so perfectly that you want to hire them on the spot, even though they may not be perfect for the job you need done now.
  • Don’t limit your search to a particular kind of person. At DLE Court Reporters, we’ve learned that diversity is the key to success. We constantly search – and hire – those with attributes that will mesh well with our team and our clients’ teams, but also those with qualities and skills that will add a value we didn’t have before.
  • Talk to colleagues. Reputations of legal support firms matter. Your peers will know the teams that showed up prepared and ready to work, sliding in seamlessly and confidently to any legal situation placed before them. DLE Court Reporters enjoy that kind of reputation.

Assembling a strong team takes thoughtful preliminary planning and tactics, but keeping it effective is when success really happens. There’s nothing worse than wondering if your court reporter will show up to the scheduled deposition or meet the promised document deadlines.

At DLE Court Reporters, we take the guesswork out of the hiring process. We’re reliable trouble-shooters who are always ready for the job in front of us. Call us and give us a shot at your next case.
