Summer associate recruiting question - OCI is mostly virtual right now, but how is your firm handling call backs? In person or virtual? We use a panel interview process requiring five people to be in one room chatting for an hour. Opinions on this? Would you feel safe as an interviewer or as a student interviewing? Any thoughts appreciated, no idea what the right thing to do is in view of delta even if everyone is vaccinated.

Virtual only. I wouldn’t want to work for a firm that makes me come in for an interview in person under current circumstances. I would question the firm’s judgment and care for others’ safety.

We were asked whether we’d be willing to do in person or virtual callbacks. I picked the “only virtual” option. My region is in the red (and many think COVID doesn’t exist or just isn’t a big deal), the office doesn’t require masks, and I have a kid at home that’s too young to get vaccinated. No way am I hanging in a small conference room with a bunch of people, particularly since the new variants are widespread here.

Thank you!

Judging by the number of young people in suits I've been seeing, we're doing in person callbacks.

Don’t give them a choice. That’s not a choice. Make the call.

Virtual screening and callback interviews. But we are doing in-person second look meetings if the candidate has an offer and asks for an in-person visit.

Also, I forgot to mention that I actually did a virtual interview with a candidate that had breakthrough Covid. It’s crazy out there. There’s no way I’m doing any of these in-person!

Not to hijack post, but how many interviews are you all doing and how long in between? Immediate offers at last interview if the candidate doesn’t bomb it?

I’ve been going through a tough phase at work and health wise and I’d taken an Leave of absence and I’ve been working with my therapist to deal with it. Everything was going okay up until my therapist lost her cool and yelled at me and called me names for wanting to extend my leave. She spent half an hour of the session just name calling and yelling at me and I’ve been pretty disturbed since then. Whatever her reasons may be, I do believe that her behavior was completely unprofessional
