Dress as you would for an in person interview. That doesn’t necessarily mean suit and tie though depending on the firm it might (e.g. I would for Latham but not Quinn).

Wait I had no idea that some people don’t wear suits to in-person big law interviews. I’m in NY now, and I definitely wore suits to all my interviews and I didn’t even think twice about it. How do you make the decision? I don’t think the firm I’m interviewing at has any particular reputation (like Quinn might, according to Google)

I did my interviews with west coast tech firms in a dress shirt and jacket, no tie. Think it worked fine. My interviewers were often in hoodies or workout gear. Hah.

How do you know if you actually have inattentive ADHD vs general anxiety? Those of you who do: how long did it take to get diagnosed?

I often forget timelines & major details esp about people. (I was talking to a friend about someone and forgot we all work together)

Adventures in Interviewing: Today we were wrapping up a pretty good interview with a strong potential candidate. When asked if they had any last questions, they said that they had an issue with our Work from Home policy (we’re 100% WFH right now, and will not consider a re-opening strategy until everyone is vaccinated). The candidate declared that they did not believe in vaccines, so we needed to allow her to be a permanent remote hire. I guess I’m glad about the dodged bullet, so there’s that.
