Are you going through a recruiter? Mine was instrumental in helping me prep.

Check lawyer whisperer blog for great advice on this.

Reached out to my law school’s career development center. They set me up with coaching and a mock interview.

Ah that would have been great. Time between email invitation and actual callback was narrow though (like 4 days) and I’m pretty busy sadly

Any tips on making cold calls better when someone seems unenthused? Just had a very awkward informational call that felt like I was interviewing someone, even though they're the one building a team.

(or maybe they just dismissed my background out the gate and didn't really want to talk to me... but then why take the call at all?)
