Today's Wall Street Journal features a story about the efforts of the Internal Revenue Service to recruit top law grads. Already outgunned by the ability of private firms to pay the big bucks, the IRS (this is no joke, read the article) recently discovered, after years of recruiting in the spring, that the prime season for recruiting law students is the fall. Even now there are glitches. One student reported that it took the Service five weeks to get around to arranging a callback, and then it was for a different job than originally advertised. Not to worry, however. The Service is rolling out a new line of slick marketing and recruiting material.
