Bring Padfolio to Callback?

Postby pjo » Tue Aug 07, 2012 4:43 pm

What's the opinion on bringing a padfolio to a call back interview? I know you're supposed to bring one to the screening interview, but at the callback, all the attorneys should have all your application documents, right? I'd prefer not to bring one, as I think it just gets in the way, especially moving form office to office.

You should bring copies of your resume and transcript. Some attorneys will not have printed them yet. They also may tell you to contact some other attorney at the firm, which you should write down.

You need to carry copies of your shit and you need to be able to write stuff down. Padfolio is the obvious answer.

It's likely you won't need it at all (either to hand out resumes/transcripts or to write stuff down), but you should have one in the off-chance you do need it. Also, it's totally standard (everyone else will have one), so you won't look out of place at all. Plus, some interviewers like to give out business cards and it's a good place to stash them.

And in addition to all that, it gives you something to do with your hands in case you are AAF.

Thanks for all the replies. I'll bring it.
