be yourself and remember interviews are two way streets. You should interview them as much as they interview you. I never planned to join KPMG but their interviews and interviewers were so wonderful, so I decided to take a chance. Good luck!!

Just be yourself. I used to do a lot of interviews for consulting roles and I could always tell when a candidate was trying to say things that they think we want to hear "to stand out" I just want to see if you'd be a fun person to work with! Throw in some personal stories and your passions and don't stress. It's cliche but you are the best at being you!

Thank you!!!

If you’re interviewing with a specific group I’d be happy to provide additional insight (if I can!). Feel free to DM. Agree with K1 that our interviews have a conversational feel (at least in my practice).

I have an interview next week and want to vet the new law firm with questions to determine if there’s a good work-life balance, respect for how work is delegated (i.e., attorneys are not routinely asked to do obvious paralegal work), and what overall systems/structures are in place to make it a functional/successful environment. What sorts of questions do you think would get this info and also cut through the usual bs of “we’re a family here” when in reality no one talks to each other?
