    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Cadwalader Wickersham.

    Interview

    I spoke to one of the paralegal managers over the phone, we discussed my background and inferest in law. We then scheduled a time for me to come in and meet with her and the manager for the department the position was in. Pretty straightforward interview, no unexpected questions. I didn't learn very much about the position or the day to day work, however I was told that if I made it to the next round, I would be meeting with the partners of the firm.
