I interviewed at Oblon, Spivak, McClelland, Maier & Neustadt, P.C. in October 2010.
Interview Details – There were two rounds of interviews, each with about 5 partners and associates. A couple of the interviewers quizzed me on my scientific field (organic chemistry), so you may want to brush up on your technical field, especially if you haven't worked as a patent examiner. It wasn't so much difficult as it was long.
Interview Question – The organic chemistry pop quiz was *somewhat* unexpected, but wasn't completely out of left field, and I didn't find it too difficult. The question that gave me the most trouble was whether I could survive in the "shark tank" (handle dealing with other attorneys on a daily basis). Perhaps I got this question because I'm a little soft-spoken and shy. Answer Question
