Interviewing.. I rock them. I just do. This last time, I interviewed for a firm that is my dream firm to work for. I was going through a recruiter. One of the benefits of a recruiter is that you hear back almost immediately how the interview went.
Here was the result: "They loved you. Said you were great, interviewed well, confident, dynamic, highly intelligent and would make a wonderful attorney. But they are not asking you back for a second interview. I tried to press them as to why and they said it was a gut instinct."
A gut instinct? Everyone that I have asked about this has said that this is a cop out. I don't know. My guess is that for some reason I did not seem like a good fit. Maybe my big personality would not mesh well with others. So it's back to the drawing board. I am bummed but not giving up.
