    Litigation Paralegal Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    No Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Akin Gump (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Everyone I encountered throughout the interview process was very nice. First, I had a 10-15 min phone interview with a recruiter, then was invited in for an in-person interview with the current paralegal who I would be replacing, and the paralegal manager. Both were very nice and easy to talk to. Questions were not typical interview questions that you could prepare for. Rather, they would give me a situation and I had to respond with what I would do in that situation.
