    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Cravath Swaine (New York, NY) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Very casual and relaxed. Just want to see if you can hold a conversation and know the basic ins and outs of a big law firm. Met with the head of HR and my future boss. Both asked me questions about stuff they found interesting on my resume and just had a normal 1 on 1 friendly conversation.
