I went on an interview yesterday. To say it was disappointing would be an understatement. The partner that interviewed me was nice, but he did not understand transactional law. At my last firm, I was a hybrid between transactional tasks and litigation. When billable hours came up, he scoffed at my previous requirement and stated that his were at minimum 60% more. He told me about the “good ole days” when associates were expected to work 200 billable hours a month. He can’t find anyone.

In the process of interviewing with a company for a Marketing role and so far I have met with NINE people, did a lengthy case study, went to the final round and then now they want me to take an aptitude and personality assessment.

Had a recruiter reach out to me, they’re partnering with a consulting company but name was not provided. They asked for an initial call, which I accepted. Now the call is scheduled, they sent me an employment application which asks for a lot of information (e.g., references, employment history, reason for leaving, social, etc.). I’ve had plenty of other recruiter initial calls/screenings but does this seem a bit excessive for the first call?
