    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at White & Case.

    Interview

    It's was very normal. The questions were mostly all resume and experience related, with a few questions about teamwork skills. There was a phone interview with a partner, and then an in-person panel-type interview with multiple partners. The in-person interview questions were all more, "tell me about yourself" type of questions, and directed towards resume and background, especially relating to the type of work the firm's group does.

    I overall enjoyed the experience, and everyone I met was great.

    Interview

    During an interview for the Miami office, the interviewers were very clear that associates were expected to work just as much as if they were in the New York office. The type of work, however, was much more Central and South America focused.
