Does anyone know where the hospitality suites for the firms will be located this week in the school?

Question...

If we signed up to be a greeter, and with the SLIGHT possibility that we will get an interview from it, how much do we need to know about the firms that are coming? For example, there are 14 firms coming tomorrow that I'm interested in (6 of which I bid on but didn't get an interview with), but should I prepare as if I had an interview with them? I'm just not sure what to do, especially because there are FOURTEEN and the chances of me getting even one interview is pretty slim.

They aren't going to quiz you about the firm when you greet them ... just be nice, polite, make small talk, then give them ur shit. It isn't rocket science.

It's not rocket science to understand that the person was pretty clearly asking if they should prepare heavily for the possible INTERVIEW, not for asking for it.

If you get an interview it will likely be at the end of the day or around lunch time. The chances are fairly slim they will have time to sit with you right there on the spot (though I have heard of it happening).

I wouldn't stress out about preparing for too many firm specific questions for every firm. In an on the spot screener you will be fine with general interview preparation. If your screener ends up at the end of the day or lunchtime you should have plenty of time to do some quick recon before it if you would like.

The assignments are generally random and I remember talking to friends last year who did it ... one ended up greeting a firm that specializes in aviation law. She had no interest in that, but took the interview anyway. Could go any number of ways.

Just follow the advice of the posters above...be courteous, warm, respectful, etc. and see where it goes. Somewhat of a hail mary, so just think of it as a little bonus shot at grabbing an extra interview. If it works out, incredible, and if not, don't sweat it.

How is that any different than my answer? You were asking if you should prepare for all 14, obviously no. Just be a normal person and if you get something then prep for it. If it's on the spot they probably won't expect you to know all the details on the firm.

Your inability to recognize that your initial answer was not really helpful, whereas now you've reiterated what I said in a more rude manner, says a lot. Using anon simply to respond rudely to other posters legitimate questions is unnecessary and sad.

The fact that you're getting so worked up over someone being rude on the internet says even more.

Telling someone they don't need to be rude and insulting is being worked up? You must have a terribly short fuse ha. You don't have to take this so seriously and hide behind anon.

Take a breath, calm down, and try not to be so hostile in your interviews.

I'm curious if anyone got any greeter interviews today. I had initially signed up for everyday but I dropped some days where I wasn't terribly interested in the firms.
