    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cadwalader Wickersham (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Interviewed by two staff members from Human Resources. The interview questions were pretty average. They mostly focused on my previous experience working in a law firm. The firm used a staffing agency to hire me directly. After the interview, I had to take a typing test and a grammar test.
