    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cadwalader Wickersham (New York, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Went in to meet with 2 heads of corporate paralegals, had meeting in beautiful office with an amazing view. Both very nice and easy to talk, asking basic resume questions regarding previous experience in law and similar types of positions. Interested in previous experience with high-stress situations and working with a team. Accepted another offer before moving on to second round, which I was told would consist of meeting with several attorneys and other legal assistants.
