Resume Collect Screening Interviews

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Aug 21, 2010 1:32 pm

Question for you all -- I go to a lower T1, and submitted my resume/transcript/etc. for a number of resume collects done through the school. So far (as expected), I haven't heard back from most of them, but a couple of days ago, I was invited to a screening interview with a V10 firm (at their office). The first week of September was the earliest they could schedule it -- and I know most callbacks are taking place during this time. Question is -- do you all think I have a legitimate shot at the firm? They haven't recruited from my school in recent years. I'd love to work for them for many reasons (practice area, firm culture, etc.), but they're a bit out of my league. Has anyone had success with resume collect opportunities in general? I'd appreciate hearing the TLS community's thoughts on this. Thanks!

I wil. But when I walk into the room, I like to have maximum control of my chances. Part of that is knowing what I'm up against.

Always assume you have a legit shot. Why would you go into an interview with anything less than full confidence? Just shooting yourself in the foot.

Why would they go through the expense if you didn't have a shot?

Resume collects just started scheduling phone interviews at my school. They are absolutely considering candidates. The timeline is just slightly different than their on-campus recruiting.

If a firm invites you for a "first round interview" from a resume collect, and the interview is out of town, does the firm pay for your travel?
