Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Special Counsel in December 2008.

Interview Details

I had two interviews for this job - the first with a hiring coordinator for Special Counsel and the second directly with representatives of the client. Both were fairly short and straightforward, no tricky or obscure questions. The interviewers were all friendly and conversational, and they made their decision quickly. When they called to offer me the team lead position, I was told the client was impressed with my similar prior experience and my confident demeanor.

Interview Questions
  • There weren't any difficult or unexpected questions. Just be prepared to tell them about your prior experience, and show some initiative about what you add to the team and how that will benefit the client, rather than what the client or project can offer you.   View Answer
Negotiation Details
The rates are not negotiable because they are set by contract between Special Counsel and the client.

    Interview Details

    It's a staffing agency for lawyers, so most of my time in the office was spent filling out paperwork for taxes, benefits, resume information, etc. My interviewer asked general questions about what I wanted to do in law and my past work history. Everyone I met was professional and approachable.
