Going Weird at the Screening Interview

Postby JJW » Sun Aug 12, 2012 12:07 am

Two friends just returned from a fair interview with observations that were somewhere between humorous and inexplicable. They tell it much funnier than the way I wrote it (plus wine was involved in their recap!).

 Complaining (in the hallway) to the interviewer that his delays was causing her to miss interviews with much bigger firms.
 Barging into an ongoing interview and (mistakenly arguing that this was his time).
 Going into the interview with mom at her side.
 Bringing a photo portfolio saying that if the lawyer thing didn’t work out she could model (this was in the waiting area).
 Lots of fashion blunders: Plastic gaudy yellow earrings; Slit up the skirt a poll dancer would be envious of; plus the shoes, how hard can that be?

If you made any weird observations. . . step up.

I saw a female law student barge into an ongoing interview with a major firm and argue with the interviewer about her scheduled time. Super awkward. I've seen a lot of fashion don'ts like ladies wearing nude color platform stilettos and short skirts with see-through blouses. There was also this one female student who was having a very loud argument with her mother over the phone which you could hear a few halls down... Good times.
