For those of you at firms. Would you ever consider hiring a privacy attorney who has only ever worked in-house?

I hired one recently (dedicated practice group in biglaw). To me, the in-house experience can serve as a significant benefit, with the gaps from not working in a firm capable of being filled in. I had to get a lot of people in my group and otherwise comfortable with it. There is a lot of pressure to hire attorneys with the paradigmatic big firm pedigree. I had to fight a bit but I believe it will be worth it. If you are trying to get hired in that situation, address the issue directly by anticipating concerns and working to address them preemptively.

From experience, yes.

I’m having trouble even getting interviews. I’ve only interviewed at 3 firms so far 3 interviews at each but they chose candidates lateraling from other firms. I’d appreciate any advice you have about how to even get in for the interview.

People realize the recession is only just starting right? So far we have only had a few rate rises, with many more to come. Stocks are down a little, but only just barely into bear territory. Major companies will be reporting large losses soon, but that hasn't happened yet, and the market will react to that. No major companies have begun large layoffs yet, either, so far we are only seeing a few minor hiring freezes. And of course we haven't seen bankruptcies yet, but they are surely coming.

As an interviewer, I find it very awkward when an interviewee has on a button-up with a tie and jacket. Heck, even just a button-up. Why do you wear that at home? Put your polo on, relax a little, and don't sit their like a stiff in your apartment bedroom with a fake background.
