For biglaw, I had two - screening and main. For a boutique, I had seven which was basically the entire corporate group.

I'm sure it varies between firms. But for my big law job, I had two screening interviews with two partners on the same day, second round of interviews with two partners and one associate the following week, and I got an offer one week after that.

Thank you!! ✨

We (big-ish law) typically do 2 interviews before offer. First interview with 1-2 people, second interview taking about half a day and meeting multiple people

Woah. This is big law, so I guess deliberating an offer or rejection? How long after the main interview(s) did you hear back?

It’s been a few weeks 🥲 but thank you!!

How long between offer and last round ?

Thank you, A3!!! ✨

I feel weird stating that my last job is my "present" one but is there any other option?

Hi fishes, Need one advice. My brother is Economics graduate. During lockdown due to covid, since both of us were at home, I taught him Salesforce, just for fun. Now he has grown to have an interest in the technology and wants to pursue a career on Salesforce. But all job posting I see, always ask for BTech, MTech and such degrees to apply for openings. Any company out there willing to take a Economics graduate based on knowledge only? Any other courses in INDIA, that may facilitate this?
