I have a job interview at White & Case, Los Angeles. Any suggestions or advice to prepare for the job interview and land the job? It’s on a contract basis, any insight about how likely is that they will offer a permanente position after the contract? I’d appreciate any info!

I’ve never seen a big firm offer a contract attorney a full time position. Not that it would be impossible, but unlikely. Even if you do your job very well, that is their expectation so it won’t make you stand out.

Agreed. I’m not at W&C but the contract attorneys at my firm have essentially zero exposure to the people who would be making these decisions (or much of anyone else for that matter), it’s just not a thing. I don’t even know if we currently have any.

Highly unlikely they will convert it to permanent position.

All the staff attorneys from 2019 are still staff attorneys (whats left of them). A fair amount of the contract lawyers are still employed though not sure how long their contracts were for. Honestly, you will likely burn out in that group and not want a permanent position anyway.

helpful

Thank you!

But I hear that at both brand-side and tech you can expect higher. If I asked for 140k would I be laughed out of the room?
