Legal Recruitment from Ten-Percent Legal

04.12.07 Avatars and Legal Recruitment - are they compatible?

Ten-Percent have just started trialling the use of Avatars on our site. Basically an Avatar is a fictional being, almost a robot that lives in a virtual world. We noticed a website in the UK doing it (Dandys Topsoil), and decided to have a go ourselves. We now have one on our solicitor page, and also our paralegal page. Basically the avatar gives a visual presentation of our services to anyone visiting the site, and spices it up a little bit! I think we are the only legal recruitment consultancy to offer this, and it will be interesting to see whether we get emails complaining about it, or commending it!
Future use will possibly be the development of many more avatars covering our paralegal and free careers advice sections rather than the solicitor recruitment side, but we will have to see..
