At all future job interviews, I will be asking my prospective employer(s) what precautions they took to protect their staff and associates during the coronavirus. Who is with me?

OP, this is the reason the virus is spreading and people are getting seriously ill and overwhelming the healthcare system and people are dying. The partners at your firm are not considering the broader impact.

I’m a co-managing partner at a national firm (>12 offices, coast to coast). If this question is presented thoughtfully, with grace and respect, I would consider it a valuable question, reflecting positively on the interviewing attorney. Bonus points if the question extended beyond *physical* health to the financial health of the firm and the security of its billable and non-billable employees. Especially non-billable staff...who make the wheels go round every day.

I appreciate candidates who understand that running a firm is hard, and there’s more to it — at every level — than just slogging through billable hours every month.

And if you ask the question in this way and get a BS response from your interviewer, then you’ve learned something valuable about that firm. Maybe it’s not a place you want to invest yourself in. Maybe you go ahead and join if you need the work. But keep looking and move when the time is right.

But if you present the question in the interview as “what’s in it for *me* when the boat takes on water,” then you should skip that one. It will do you much more harm than good.

Non sequitur, but I like P1’s writing style.

I have to agree with A1... we can dream though! Just ask an associate at the firm rather than the interviewing partners who may embellish anyway out of embarrassment

I agree with this. The interviewing partners can easily lie or give a generic bs response about prioritizing wellness etc.

I showed up to a video interview on Teams this morning, and didn’t realize until 5 min after I thought the meeting would start that the interview is actually tomorrow.

I ended the call immediately but knowing Teams, it’ll notify the attendees that I started and ended a meeting. I’m so embarrassed about my mistake.

How to address this tomorrow?

Just curious how many interviews did you go on before landing a job?

I have one that I’m waiting back to hear from and have a second round with Amazon. If I don’t get these I’m debating on if I should read/study leadership books to try and change my approach when answering these questions.

Applied here and interviewed (presumably to the final round) and didn’t end up with an offer, I think due to the specific experience I’ve had so far. I want to definitely try again in the future when I get more experience. Is there a specific grace period that is ideal? Would this look bad if I apply again since I’ve been rejected before?
