Hi - new here. I’ve gotten feedback during some interviews that my answers are correct (and are often very good), but I need to work on being more concise in my delivery. I don’t think I’m *that* bad at it, but this is now the third time I’ve gotten this feedback and want to act on it. Does anyone have tips for structuring more concise answers and/or what to focus on when answering behavioral questions?

What’s the toughest interview question you’ve gotten or asked and what answer did you give/were you looking for?

10 months into ID litigation at a mid-sized regional firm (100 lawyers). Ultimate goal is to end up in commercial lit at a big firm one day. I’ve gone through 2 rounds of interviews at a smaller financial services and commercial lit firm (30 lawyers) in the city and my friend there said to expect a call tomorrow. Not trying to count my chickens here, but I’m second guessing if this is the right move. Market seems hot, and seems like I could jump right into big law if I’m patient. Help lol


Hiring managers: How is the interview process like at your company and how much say do you have when it comes to choosing that candidate? I had a behavioral interview with a manager from another team and a case study with the hiring manager. They both took notes as I gave my answers but the first manager was very disinterested from the get go and was distracted as he kept looking away from the screen. I’m wondering how much influence the first manager has since I’m not sure what he’s writing
