Depends on the firm. But a lot of them are struggling to hire and retain people. If it’s a b level firm, just go in there with a smile and a can do attitude. Maybe mention a time where you did something similar to consulting. But don’t stress yourself, they provide training.

If it’s the big 4 consulting firm, definitely try to use the STAR method of interviewing. Have some consulting-esque experiences in your back pocket. As well as story of when you failed and learned a valuable lesson or how you fixed it. Be knowledgeable about the area of consulting you’re going into and be prepared for a case study. It may not be in interview 1 but surely interview 2 or 3.

Hope that’s helpful!

I’m a third-year litigation associate with a boutique firm, looking to lateral to a larger firm in the new year.

In my second year of practice, I was formally diagnosed with ADD and began taking medication, which works wonders. Long story short, if GPA comes up in interviews, is this worth mentioning? Potential red flag?

Does it mean anything specifically when a company/firm reposts their position? I went on a phone screen and it went really well (so I thought) and got the interview with a AmLaw200 firm. I thought the interview went okay but then 8 days later no contact and I saw that they reposted the position. I’ve had my position for almost 8 months and I’m ready to leave but that’s another story.

Hi All. I have a good job offer but I'm wondering whether I should negotiate comp. I made it clear from the beginning what my target for base comp was which is ~$10K over the top of the posted salary range for the job. I also said that I was comfortable proceeding with the interview process despite the top of that range being lower (somewhat weakening my position for later I suppose). The offer is at the very top of the range. Bonus is 5% less than what I get in my current job. Negotiate?

I’ve been dating this white guy for 2 months now. Prior to him, I’d only dated black men (American/islanders/Africans). It started as a “let’s see what this guy is about” thing, and I steadily fell for him. He is more than what I’ve ever prayed for and I can see this going further. Any advice from those who have also had to navigate interracial relationships? He is hyper liberal (more than I am) and comes from a family with similar views.
