    Summer Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Linklaters in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    The callback interview totalled 4 hours: HR person, 3 partners, 1 associate, each for 30-40 minutes.

    The part with HR was somewhat the most difficult because they asked me somethings that I wasn't prepared for such as "tell us about a way you solved a problem in an imaginative, creative way."

    The interviews with the partners were very different one from the other.
    The first one was more formal, kind of what I was expecting. I got to ask many questions.
    The second partner actually tasked, "what do you want?"
    The third partner was the co-managing partner for the NY office.
    Overall, all the partners were very inviting and laid back.

    The last person I met with was a mid-level associate, she basically just answered questions about her work and involvement with summer associates.

    Interview questions:

    HR behavioral questions:
    What did you like about your undergraduate? About your 1L?
    A moment you are proud of?
    A moment where you solved a problem in an imaginative way?
    How do you start a new project, what do you do?
    What is important for you about the people you work with?
    Worked in a team lead by someone else?
    A difficult situation you managed by yourself?
    What would I see if you were stressed out?
    What types of situations put you under pressure?
    Describe a good week.

    One of the partners' questions was, Why Linklaters?
