Interviewing for a different firm for 3L Fall

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Jun 05, 2013 6:31 pm

Rising 3L, I just started working at a mid size civil litigation firm (plaintiff's work as well as general commercial litigation) with a good rep in town last week. However, today i received a call from a bigger firm 2 blocks away from where i live that offers a more diverse practice asking to interview for a summer position that I had applied for months ago. I declined the interview telling them that I had recently accepted a position for the summer. In response that told me that the position was also open for the fall and wanted to know if I was still interested and I told them that I would get back them tomorrow. At my current job, the issue of a job after graduation and/or in the fall was only vaguely discussed if at all. Would accepting the interview and/or accepting a position with the firm in the fall while only just starting to work at my current job be an issue? Would this be taboo in anyway? I would at least want to take the interview and see what they have to say but at the same time I would not want to jeopardize my current job in anyway. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Take the interview. It's always good to have options.

Thank you for the advice. Interviewing set up and legal recruiter indicated they would be willing to start me at the end of July if I were accepted. May have somehow found a back door into biglaw (for my region) for half a summer. Unreal.
