CB- practice area interest

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Aug 31, 2012 1:50 am

I have a CB for a NY firm next week. When I scheduled it a few weeks ago the recruiter asked if I had any particular practice area interests. My understanding is that is so they can try to have someone from that group be one of your interviewers. I said tax and then waivered a bit. She said she'd put down tax and general or something like that. I am genuinely interested in tax, but there are only ~10 tax attorneys in a 200+ office. Now I'm worried that I shouldn't have said that and that I just boxed myself into a corner. Am I freaking about nothing? Should I call recruiting and mention that I'm interested in more areas? Or will just mentioning that during the CB be enough?

You're fine. You'll have the chance to accurately articulate which practice groups you're interested in during the CB interviews.
