    Paralegal Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Reed Smith.

    Interview

    Met with regional and firm-wide paralegal coordinator via video conference and later on met with partner and associate. My impression was that the coordinators have final say in who gets hired and the attorneys have to go without unless they voice some sort of concern. Was offered job a few days after interview and i accepted.
