I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Edelman Combs Latturner & Goodwin in August 2013.

Interview Details – Very straightforward. I applied through my university's career database (Edelman hires almost exclusively from Northwestern and UChicago alone). Came in for an interview two weeks later (I met with two of the partners). Questions were mainly about my resume and if/why I wanted to pursue a career in law. I received a callback with an offer the next day.

Interview Question – None. There weren't any situational questions asked.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Salary and benefits are NOT negotiable. It was a take it or leave it scenario.

Paralegal Interview

The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Edelman Combs Latturner & Goodwin in April 2009.

Interview Details – The interview was only a 30 minutes total (and there was only one round). Personality-based interview with very basic/expected questions regarding why do you want to work in a law office, career aspirations, where do you see yourself in 5yrs, and description of your skills (attention to detail, organization, communication being important ones).

The interviewers seemed very nice, but there was very little specificity about the exact nature of the work or area of law the specific position would have exposure to -- I would suggest asking as this information will shape your experience at ECLG.

Interview Question – Your resume shows a lot of diverse interests; why do you want to work in a law office?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation - not on salary, start date, etc. It was a "take it or leave it" situation.

Be ready to accept when you call back about the hiring decision, because they only give you 2-4 days to decide.
