For the lawyers in biglaw firms, how do you manage to interview at other firms while balancing the commitments and availability of your current position? Also, how do you make sure your current firm doesn’t find out that you’re interviewing with a competitor?

It’s very easy now that everything is virtual - you just block off “personal” time on your calendar and nobody has to know what you’re doing during that time. I changed out of my suit and back into casual clothes after my interviews so nothing looked suspicious on zoom calls.

You lie. Sucks but only way to do it. I had multiple dr appointments, personal emergencies that made me unavailable for big projects, etc. Try not to pack too many long interviews in one day as they can be pretty exhausting. But yeah, so much easier now that things are remote. Just say you have a call and that’s it.

Definitely be selective where you interview. I also found that morning interviews were easier to pull off as well. Good luck!
