    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at McDermott Will & Emery (New York, NY) in May 2011.

    Interview

    I was called for an interview with three members of their human resources team. After I completed that step, I received another phone call to interview with the attorneys I would be supporting. Over the course of a number of hours, I interviewed with each one individually before receiving an offer that day.
