Jim Leipold, Executive Director of the National Association for Law Placement (NALP) and our own Professor Dan Rodriguez engaged in a data-driven, in-depth discussion about the impact of the pandemic and its aftermath on the U.S. legal market. Their discussion included a look at the challenges students and alumni are facing in the current legal job market, how law firm recruiting strategies are being altered, and what sustainable opportunities might come as a result of COVID-19.
Despite the current state of the world (or maybe because of it?), many people are in the market for a new job. With the use of available technology, most interviews these days are on virtual platforms. How is this different than phone or in person interviews? How do you prepare? How do you connect with the interviewers? How do you stand out? In this presentation, a panel of experienced legal industry hiring decision makers from both the public and private sectors discuss best practices, tips, and strategies to maximize success on your interviews and avoid common pitfalls.
