Cadwalader Wickersham Paralegal Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Paralegal Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Cadwalader Wickersham in April 2012.
Interview Details – The firm was very professional in its communications and brought me straight in, no phone interview. The interview was conducted by two people from the HR department, and I was informed that if I proceeded to the second round, the interview would be conducted by attorneys from the group that was hiring. It was a fairly standard personal interview, asked questions about my previous experience, asked me about my strengths and weaknesses. Thought it was very fair.
