I'm doing a crim law clinic right now, and I just have a line on my résumé that says "Clinics: Criminal Law Clinic, Other Clinic" (I did another non-crim clinic last year). The interviewer never even noticed I was in a crim clinic until I brought it up. How do i make this clinic more noticeable? I always bring up my clinic work in the cover letter, but should I add a description to my resume too?
Why do you think she hated you? Were there any indications, or was it just a feeling you had? Sometimes with prosecution interviews the idea is to make you feel like it's going bad to see how you respond. A lot of people come out of them feeling like they did poorly, when actually they did fine.
And some offices don't give hypos.
First round interviews don't usually involve hypos. I also had a recent interview where I felt the whole panel hated me from the start. They looked totally disinterested and I admit it threw me off. I'm really used to this stuff but I don't know why I croaked. Ding here for sure.
