Preparing to Answer Key Interview Questions

By
Senior Recruiter
When preparing for a law firm interview, one of your primary goals is to anticipate and prepare for virtually every significant question that the firm is going to ask you. Of course, not all interview questions can be accurately predicted. But many can, at least in terms of the general subject matter. Of course, some of the questions that will be asked will not be predictable. Most of these questions will be trivial, however, and do not require preparation. For these questions, as well as the interview in general, you just need to have strong overall preparation. This includes dressing right, having strong confidence (which comes in part from being well prepared for whatever they are going to ask you), clear enthusiasm for the opportunity and your most charming personality at the forefront. Rather, it is only the substantial questions that you need to prepare for. And it is these questions that you can reasonably anticipate and be entirely ready to hit out of the park.
