JOBS IN AN LPO - 1

Today, every good lawyer is yearning to get a job in an LPO. It is coming up like a dream come true. Every job is like a coin, having two faces i.e. an employer and an employee. Both of them view it with different conceptions and notions. An employer in an LPO looks for people possessing the qualities like dedication, reliability, and qualification. LPO service providers look out for more fresh graduates and they train them according to their requirements. The requirements of an LPO service provider can be enumerated as under:

(a) Excellent command over the English language with correct pronunciation.
(b) Confident in performing their tasks.
(c) Attentive and dedicated to the duties.
(d) Well aware and conversant with the usage and application of software’s.
(e) Having an urge to grow in the LPO sector
(f) Capable to adapt according to the requirements of the client.
(g) Having strong analytical skills and ability to carry on different jobs in a time bound manner.
(h) Prepared to assimilate in group working.
Of course these are only some of the qualities looked by the LPO service providers, in lawyers willing to join them. The most important requirement in a lawyer is the capability to provide high qualitative work in a confidential manner with commitments to the employer.

The general problem faced by a booming sector is the shift of employee’s loyalties. There are lucrative offers to the talented lawyers which always attempt to attract them from the present employers. Many a times, employees work in an LPO just to gain experience so that they can fly to the next employer. Long associations of employer with employees become minimal resulting in to a loss to the LPO sector. It will not be out of place to mention a booming sector becomes fragile when it is based upon talented and qualified professionals like lawyers.
