    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Akin Gump (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Went to Century City for a video interview with the team in DC. The interview was routine, asking about prior experience and long-term career goals. Met with HR, manager and director of the department. The firm seemed nice but low-balled me on the offer.
