    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Seward & Kissel (New York, NY) in July 2011.

    Interview

    I had a brief screening interview with an HR recruiter, who, after confirming that I was interested and willing to verbally commit to a two-year paralegal position if hired, set up my interviews with members of the practice group in which I'd be working. I came to the firm one afternoon and interviewed with several members of the group (partners, associates, other paralegals, etc.). Everyone was very friendly, and no one tried to really "grill" me.

    Interview Questions

    • I really don't remember any unexpected or particularly difficult questions. Most were very standard--"Why do you want to work as a paralegal?" "Why this firm/this position/this practice group?" "Are you willing/able to work lots of overtime?".   Answer Question
