Callback Interviews??

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Aug 14, 2009 5:48 pm

In general, are the various interviews you have with multiple partners during callbacks similar to initial interviews at OCI?

Are they more conversational to see if I fit or are they going to ask me a ton of substantive questions? Any advice specific to callback interviews as compared to OCI interviews?

For your callbacks, I would prepare just like any interview. Just be prepared to ask lots of questions.


What kinds of questions did you ask?

So I know your firm does X, does that mean... insert question here regarding getting work, training, what types of work someone like you (lit/transactional interest) would be given. etc

Another good one has been: compare X (current firm) to Y (firm the person had worked at previously).

Easy one: It sounds like the firm's culture is blah, what's the culture like in this office/group?
