Staying calm, composed, and communicating effectively in an interview can mean everything when it comes to securing an employment opportunity as a law student. Can you talk about yourself? Are you ready to articulate your specific interest in a particular employer or a particular position? Do you know what your strengths are, and why those qualities might be important to a legal employer? Are you ready to discuss every item on your resume? Are you prepared to answer behavior interview questions? Have you prepared questions that you can ask your interviewer?
There’s a lot that goes into a successful job interview. The best way to improve your interview skills is to practice. And, at C|M|LAW, we’re fortunate that many of our alumni are willing to volunteer their time to assist our students with improving their interview skills.
