Initial screening call with prospective candidate from out of state - is this a good thing to be exited about? Or a standard, don't hold your breath kind of thing? Tips for success?

Hahaha. I had a feeling that was confusing. OP is candidate, applying to an out of state firm. I received an invitation to a telephone initial screener. Wow. Ill try to be better spoken on the call.

In that case don't be excited. And have very good answers why you want to move there in addition to everything else.

I was confused as well. If it’s a position you are excited about or excited to learn more about, yes. Since an in person interview would require travel, they likely wanted to feel you out (and for you to feel them out) before you made the trek to their office. Standard procedure. This may all sound elementary, but make sure you take/make call in a good place and normal telephone interview things (stand up, smile - it really does affect your tone, et al.).

They wouldn’t be talking to you if there wasn’t genuine interest. So treat it like a real interview - be prepared on why you want to move to that state, research the firm and practice group, read your interviewer’s bio and any articles they’ve written, etc.

If you’re not already admitted in the new state, be prepared to articulate your timeline to take the new state’s bar exam/get admitted.

I'm looking for a calling system that will allow me to be efficient making phone calls. I basically need a system that will keep my list of phone calls by date where I can see the entire list for the day, click on any call I want, allow me to make notes in the phone call and set up the next call for a specific date. I'm not looking for an auto dialer but if that comes with it, great. Bonus points if it syncs with the Redtail CRM. Thanks for your help. I'm tired of using excel. c

IEP, 504, and those without internet will return in-person next week while rest of students remain remote. Regular Ed teachers may have students (mild Learning Disabled kiddos) in their room while teaching. They are saying it’s a liability issue if they have one student in the room with them, even though teaching other via Zoom. Thoughts? Anyone else experiencing this?

Any tips to get prospective employer to beat the current comp? TIA
