Why Loser Attorney Candidates Lose the Opportunity

A law firm wants to make sure you’re not a loser. Law firms believe that a loser is a candidate who acts inappropriately during the interview or doesn’t appear to be truly interested in the job. Losers are also those who will be difficult to manage if hired and indicate to their interviewers that they have had significant problems with their supervisors in their current or past positions. Law firms also believe losers are those who do not have a strong interest in practicing law or are arrogant.
