A partner submitted my resume to her firm’s recruiting department and I got called in for an interview. I’m researching the interviewers and one is the hiring attorney. Is that a good sign or routine? (I haven’t worked in big law to know.)

Good sign!

Totally depends on the firm.

Good sign. Probably because you’re clerking right now.

I think it's routine at some firms for a partner on the hiring committee to interview, even if they're not from the same practice area. That was my experience recently

A company recently interviewed me. However the reviews goven by them to the receuiter are positive but they are mentioning that finalizing will take time as they are to decide between 2 candidates(me and someone else).

All i want is a yes or no or even a hint that its not going through. Advice please

Question for recent Deloitters and other consultants who work at consulting firms with job application forms like Taleo (a detailed form) Did anyone skip the non-required blanks and yet still get an interview/offer? For example, Deloitte application has non-required fields asking for supervisors from each job. I would like to put a note: “My supervisor does not know I am job searching; references available upon request should I be selected as a finalist candidate.” I worry that’ll look bad
