Hi! I have an interview tomorrow for an HR Business Partner role in the retail space. I’d be overseeing 7 locations in the region for a large company. I’m Located near Cleveland, OH. I really don’t want to lowball myself but ranges I’ve seen for a role like this go from 60k-130k. I was thinking somewhere around 70-75k. Is that too low? Help!

What are some good/important questions to ask a potential creative partner in an interview? I’m going through the process now and usually go mostly off chemistry and personality but feel like it could be of value to actually have some key questions in mind? Anyone have any that personally helped you know that your partner was “the one” (as lame as that sounds)

GHOSTING POTENTIAL EMPLOYERS: My friend is a partner in a firm (Long Island, NY). He said they cannot find attorneys to hire.

MILLENNIALS, ARE YOU REALLY GHOSTING POTENTIAL EMPLOYERS?! Where are the applicants?! Don’t you all need jobs!?

Did not get an offer from Morgan Lewis last week. I went to a seminar today where the partner I interviews was speaking (he is the main partner of the group and he has like a 5 person team).

Not sure how I feel about the situation haha

How many rounds of interviews do firms usually do for laterals? I have a first round coming up with a co-chair, partner and associate in the group I’ve applied to, but it’s unclear whether that’s just a screener/I’d have to do callbacks. If relevant, I’m being poached by a partner that just joined from my current firm so my understanding was that I’d be fast-tracked.

I’m a 1st year, going into my 2nd, attorney and applying for new jobs. The bulk of my work at this ID firm was mainly project based, although I got to work on several cases and have ample experience in motion practice, discovery, etc. With that being said, in my most recent interview the partner said he expects me to move the cases along, without any direct oversight (only to run ideas by him). The bulk of my cases are going to be Personal injury/premises liability etc (CONTINUED BELOW:)

A firm im pretty interested in is super insistent on doing an in person interview during office hours. They want to do it towards the end of lunch hour. It's super inconvenient for me and will likely make me run late for other things and my partner has things going on at that hour where I need to be available. Not sure how to handle as this firm is dead set on an in person interview.

Interviewing for a role I am qualified for. During the second round of interviews (4.5 hours) one partner could not make his time slot. The firm now wants to schedule a third round of interviews with the partner that missed his time and at the request of one of the interviewers in my second round, multiple other folks I’d be directly working with for a robust 2 hours+ third round. Any reason they’d add the new interviewers other than doubting my candidacy?
