Hiring Decisions

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Feb 03, 2014 11:41 am

There obviously may not be a uniform way of doing this, but how do big firms usually make their hiring decisions? Does the managing partner of the practice group usually make the decision or is there a hiring committee? And how do the interviewers pass along their impressions of the interviewee to the decision maker(s)?

There are MASSIVE threads on this topic. You could probably find some with minimal effort. The short answer is: it varies.
