After several applications out, I finally got that treasured call: a call for an interview. The words, "Your resume has risen to the attention of the CEO and rose to the top for scheduling an interview." I am so stoked! I have never really thought about practicing in the area of law that I applied for, however, after much research, I think I would be a good fit.
So what tactic do I use to interview? I read as much on the organizations website I could. I am applying for the position of a staff attorney. So, I made myself familiar with the business that they are in. I looked up, by googling, some of the major players in the organization. Then I looked at the area of law and will be researching some of the issues so I can be prepared to talk about the industry itself -- though I have little knowledge of the practice of law in this area.
My interview is Monday....as I prepare some more, I will update here what I am doing to prepare (besides finding a new suit to wear because I have gained the proverbial 10 pounds this summer). While I want the employer to decide on me, I want to look and see whether I want to hitch my train to this particular star!
