Ask A Legal Recruiter

Any tips on how to do a stealth job search while at a firm? Trying to relocate to a different market but have a demanding BigLaw job in NYC. Bad idea to request interviews by videoconference?

Video conference is 100% reasonable to ask for until you’re later in the process (final full day interview stage).

Typically firms don’t request in-person for first rounds unless you’re in the market already. Most firms do phone or video conferences before flying candidates in for a 2nd round in-person interview. I’ve been able to coordinate candidates’ travel with 2-3 firms, where the candidate meets with a few firms on one trip, with shared costs between firms anonymously.
