What does it take to be successful? Success is a process. It is practice.
Malcolm Gladwell, author of The Outliers, contends that it takes no less than 10,000 hours of practice to become successful in one’s field. He states, “Practice isn’t the thing you do once you’re good. It’s the thing you do that makes you good.” With over 30,000 hours of practice and 10+ years of experience, Kevin Considine has found what he is successful at – connecting people to one another through the art of recruitment.
Starting in the legal recruitment field as a junior recruiter at Legal Placements, Inc., Kevin rose up the ranks to run the New York office after only six months on the job. He then advanced rapidly to lead the operations of Legal Placement’s New York and Boston offices. In 2008, Kevin joined The Forum Group, where – during one of the most turbulent economic times in history – he established and grew its legal division from a non-existent base to over 50 clients and over $1MM in revenues. The testimonials he received from clients, candidates and peers as a result of his commitment to their success led Kevin to found Considine Search – a recruitment business based on the instinct Kevin has for identifying the right people for the right roles at the right firms.
A longstanding member of the New York Chapter of the Association of Legal Administrators, in his free time, Kevin enjoys running and has completed three NYC Marathons. Besides running, he also enjoys biking, soccer, snowboarding and SCUBA diving. A native New Yorker, Kevin earned a degree in Psychology from Queens University of Charlotte, where he played Division II Soccer.
