    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Shearman & Sterling.

    Interview Details

    I had a 30 minute screenout interview over the phone. The interviewer explained the context of work. He asked several basic questions and it was easy to answer. You need to prepare to explain your background and questions to ask the interviewer, but it is not difficult. The interviewer is polite and created a good atmosphere.
