Educating Lawyers Without the Zzzs


Like Steve Lincoln, all interviews can begin the moment you first encounter anyone associated with the firm: receptionists, paralegals, assistants, secretaries, recruiting coordinators, other lawyers, or even clients walking the halls.  As an outsider, you do not know who knows who (including who talks to who), let alone just who has input into your effort to seek employment.  Be polite and courteous in all of your dealings with the firm.  Of course, being fixated on which chair you should sit in does show a lack of focus on your true objective!

Next is my 11:15 a.m. interview with Sidney Milton.  He is ten minutes late, but going in to the interview, I do not know whether he is to blame or whether one of my colleagues caused the delay in a prior interview.
