    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Edelman Combs Latturner & Goodwin (Chicago, IL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and was called to interview a day or two afterward. I came in and spoke with 3 attorneys of the firm for about a half an hour. They asked pretty standard questions - future plans, why I'd applied, what about the firm I found appealing. Casual, not unpleasant at all. I didn't get an offer, and wished they'd kept me updated on the position - I never heard anything back.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Edelman Combs Latturner & Goodwin (Chicago, IL) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Very straightforward. I applied through my university's career database (Edelman hires almost exclusively from Northwestern and UChicago alone). Came in for an interview two weeks later (I met with two of the partners). Questions were mainly about my resume and if/why I wanted to pursue a career in law. I received a callback with an offer the next day.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Salary and benefits are NOT negotiable. It was a take it or leave it scenario.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Edelman Combs Latturner & Goodwin (Chicago, IL) in April 2009.

    Interview

    The interview was only a 30 minutes total (and there was only one round). Personality-based interview with very basic/expected questions regarding why do you want to work in a law office, career aspirations, where do you see yourself in 5yrs, and description of your skills (attention to detail, organization, communication being important ones).

    The interviewers seemed very nice, but there was very little specificity about the exact nature of the work or area of law the specific position would have exposure to -- I would suggest asking as this information will shape your experience at ECLG.

    Interview Questions

    • Your resume shows a lot of diverse interests; why do you want to work in a law office?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation - not on salary, start date, etc. It was a "take it or leave it" situation.

    Be ready to accept when you call back about the hiring decision, because they only give you 2-4 days to decide.
