Interviewing BASICS

B – Be on time.  Arrive no more than fifteen minutes early.
A – Access information about the firm and the company with whom you have the interview.
S – See what has been written about you or by you on Google, Face Book, Twitter and any other social media.
I – Interview the interviewer.  Prepare questions to ask the interviewer.  This shows a sincere interest. Make sure the questions are appropriate and not easily answered by brief research.

C – Conservative attire.  Law firms expect their lawyers to dress in a conservative manner.  If you have any questions, ask one of suggested resources below:

S – Send off. Look for clues that the interview is over, prepare to leave, shake hands, ask for the interviewer’s business card and hand him one of yours. Restate your interest in working for the firm/organization.
