      Average Interview


      I was pretty excited to interview with Legal Aid since I’m a fan of the organization. Originally, I had two interviewers for my first interview. Less than 5 minutes in, the head of IT abruptly joins the interview and explains to me that she needs to pull one of my interviewers, the department head I’d be working for, out of the interview to deal with an emergency. I understand emergencies happen, but I was kind of surprised that the one other interviewer (who was a lower rank) continued the interview. I did my best and I was able to answer most questions. The interview itself did not seem difficult, but ultimately I did not get selected for the second round. While I’m sure there are other reasons I didn’t make the cut, it kinda feels like I got a raw deal from the beginning since I was unable to impress upon the person I’d actually be reporting to. I really wish they would have rescheduled. Even if I still failed to impress the other interviewer who got pulled, I would have at least appreciated the opportunity to try.
