A Cleveland law firm has thrown stodginess to the wind and is recruiting with up-to-the-minute job alerts sent to iPhones and iPads.
The free "Benesch Apportunity" app from the iTunes store automatically sends out a notification when an attorney position is available at Benesch, Friedlander, Coplan & Aronoff. The 165-lawyer, seven-office firm says it has about two openings a month.
. . . .
"I've never heard of that before," said Robert Ambrogi, a lawyer, consultant on legal technology and former editor of the National Law Journal. "It's a nice idea, especially given how many lawyers are looking. I assume it would be a very popular app."
