I work in insurance defense and we are getting slammed as far as workload and have been for some time. It’s nice because I haven’t had to beg for billable work and always hit my goals. My question is whether this has been the norm at other insurance defense firms. My other question is how other states are dealing with COVID restrictions on jury trials. Has anyone tried anything during the pandemic?

From the hiring folks, any tips on navigating the initial interview (the 30 min or less one) with the company’s recruiter?

I’ve done some in the past and some led to further interviews others didnt but including tell why some went one way some went the other. Any and all tips and insight appreciated!
