Interview Question

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Feb 14, 2014 9:03 pm

Have an interview with a federal judge coming up. This particular judge has a reputation for hiring his former interns as clerks. Is this a reason that I can voice for "why this judge?" In addition to other reasons, of course.

Hmm, just my gut feeling is that comes off as too instrumental. I'm assuming you are interviewing for a 1L internship position? You could try and phrase it more like the interns must have really enjoyed working for you if they came back as clerks. Something along those lines, though maybe not exactly like that.
