Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Jenner & Block

Interview

The interviewer did not even know my name or what position I was applying for. Had to search for and pull up my resume. The interviewer was extremely underprepared and seemed to be pulling questions out of the air. Made it very awkward for both myself and him. Seemed to be a waste of both our time.

Interview was fine. Office work is office work. The questions weren't any different than any other office job/legal assistant work. It helps to know someone, obviously, so if you have a network that can help you out, the interview will be a breeze.
