Interview Advice

Postby Anonymous User » Tue Jan 29, 2013 4:06 pm

Hi all. I'm interviewing with a federal COA judge in the next week or two, and would love some interview advice. Things to ask and to do, things to avoid, etc. My numbers make me a long shot, so I need to nail the interview.

Thanks in advance!!!

Would appreciate if you can PM me. (Don't have interview tips, but I am trying to anonymously collect information about timing of judges.)

My best advice would be to be yourself. Secondarily, try to make clear that you've read and thought about some of the judge's opinions and be prepared to talk about how the clerkship would fit into your larger career plans. I was in a similar situation, and this advice paid off for me. Would you mind sharing the circuit? I wonder if it could be the same judge.
