    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at DLA Piper (San Diego, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The job was very unique and they were looking for someone to assist a disabled attorney as a personal/administrative aide. The interview was not difficult and it was directly with said attorney. It was more of a conversation and what to expect in terms of the day-to-day. I did not get the job. I probably just was not the right fit but I also felt that I didn't get the opportunity to present myself.
