Third fucking interview with this god damn firm. This time I only met old ass fucking equity partners. The equity partner that heads the group I would be joining was all enthusiastic and shit. Talked about how impressive I was and what a great fit I would be.

I'm going to lose my shit when I get dinged. I'll be sure to come in here and rant when it happens.

yea it definitely looked like they were stringing you along. at least u were the top candidate though. looks like you'll probably be similarly well-qualified to win other positions that open up in the future. no need to stress out. you have a strong resume in that you've been at one firm the whole time now. you may want to spend less time working with the recruiter and more time networking with friends/classmates at other firms in the area. firms love to hire without going through a recruiter as it saves them a lot of money.

Good luck, brother. I have a second interview for a lateral position, having been dinged in my two previous attempts. I went 5-for-5 on callbacks for OCI, getting dinged for lateral positions is fucking with my confidence.

Thanks.

I've interviewed with 4 firms.

One outright dinged me (expected it, it was a completely different practice from what I'm doing now).

Two were like, "Yeah bro, we like you, but we've just started looking so we're going to see what else is out there, let us know if you get an offer before we're done and we might counteroffer."

Then the fourth one has made me do three fucking interviews. At this point I've met every attorney in the group, and several random equity partners outside of the group. It's going to be great when they ding me or pull the same shit the other firms did. "Weellll we're going to keep looking, but let us know if you need an answer anytime soon."

Have any of these been group interviews? I've had two, and I hate them. I was dinged for one that was a reach outside my practice group, but the second ding was right in my wheelhouse. The recruiter told me they offered the position to someone else two days after my interview.

Three interviews with partners is a good sign, though. Any sense of their urgency?

Sent a "thanks for meeting with me" email to the equity partner that runs the group I would be joining. His response is a little odd.

"[...,...,.,.,.,.,..,.,..,..,.,.,]:

Thank you for spending time with me, you have an impressive resume and are a very good communicator."

Now I know how fat girls feel when people tell them they have nice personalities.

I've decided that thank you notes or emails are bullshit. At the very best, you get a cryptic response, not "oh, hey, was just about to call you to negotiate salary." This is another reason to use recruiters- they handle all the followup, and can even get actual feedback from your interviewers.

UPDATE:

I heard back from my recruiter Thursday last week. They want me to do a fourth interview...this time with just one partner.

I provided my availability and haven't heard back yet. Annoyed for several reasons.

1. Four interviews? Seriously? What the fuck.

2. It should not take 3+ days to figure out when a single person's schedule matches up with one other person's schedule.

I'm not sure if this inefficiency is the fault of the recruiter or the firm, but either way, it's frustrating.

Uhg, probably. I don't understand why some recruiters is such shit. You would think if you had like 30k on the line (or whatever it is they get) you would hustle your fucking ass off to get this shit scheduled.

I had to email her this morning to suggest HEY MAYBE YOU SHOULD CALL THEM TO CHECK THE STATUS?!

Right, but they already decided they want me to meet this partner bro. I don't know how it works at other firms, but here, if senior partner needs to interview someone the recruiter just sets it up with his secretary.

Maybe they have to go through the partner and he just hasn't responded to the email.

they're also shitty at scheduling. they're irrationally afraid of being persistent and getting flagged as being a pain in the ass. they'll email the partner once to check on his availability, and he'll ignore the email and she won't follow up b/c she's afraid of bugging him.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure this is a large part of it. The HR person in charge of lateral recruiting in this office is like a month into the job. My first two interviews went fine scheduling wise, then when this bitch shows up shit starts taking forever.

Subject: FOURTH INTERVIEW UPDATE

Interview went well. He's impressed, thinks I'll be a great fit, etc etc blah blah blah. He said everyone I've met has really liked me and this interview was really more of a courtesy to him and that I won't have to do any more interviews.

He concluded by saying that he would not be a hurdle to me getting the position and that he would try to speak with [partner in charge of the position being filled] immediately.

I look forward to two weeks of silence and then a ding letter telling me how many well qualified candidates they saw.

Day 4 - Parched. Mouth so dry I struggle just to swallow. The heat is crushing me. I can't even stand. So this is how it ends?...

But...in the distance...a lone rider approaching fast.

I wave my arms, pleading for him to stop...please...please save me. He's going too fast...he's going to pass by me...I know he's going to leave me to die.

But then his pace slows, now not more than a trot. He stops a few feet in front of me. He stops?...HE STOPPED!

I force my gaze up. I try to catch a glimpse of his face, but the sun is blinding.

I gasp "water?!!"

I think I can almost make out a smile on the stranger's face. He throws a canteen down to me and gruffly says, "You are the candidate to whom we intend to make an offer once we get the official sign off."

He then gallops off into the sunset.

Hope...

Update:

They fucked me. Sometime in the middle of all the interviewing (I think between 3rd and 4th interview) the executive committee decided to put a hiring freeze in place. The partners in the group that were interviewing me thought they would be exempt because they had already received approval to hire.

They were wrong.

They then submitted a bunch of shit to have the hire approved despite the freeze.

It was denied.

The whole time they kept telling me an offer was coming...until it wasn't. Lost about a month and a half of time where I should have been applying for other jobs.

They fucked me so bad. They didn't even call me and apologize or anything...it was just like, "lol whoops, we can't give you an offer right now."

And yeah, I'll be here for Suits.

I'm thinking about asking my firm if they'll let me remote work every other week. I haven't actually been in my office in 2.5 weeks now (I've been working out of an office in another city because of some client emergency). I think the fact that I've still managed to get all my shit done would allow me to make a good case for working remotely every other week.

Update -

I got pissed off about the law firm fucking me so I applied to a bunch of non-legal positions (without a recruiter). One of them was a consulting firm and they had me do an interview. Nailed the interview and they gave me an offer on Friday. The salary is good, but it's still like 40k less than biglol associate. Today I countered them asking for 20k more.

The EVP said he would talk to the other senior peeps and get back to me tomorrow.

If they go up, goodbye law.

Yeah, I can.

Advancement options are pretty good. Their senior people are compensated similar to biglaw senior people and the top people make biglaw partner pay. One thing that appeals to me about it is they're willing to jump people ahead if they're high performers.

I also feel pretty positive about exit options. Healthcare consulting seems like a pretty solid field, and if I want to go back into law, I could always shoot for an in-house gig at a hospital or university.

I went to business school for undergrad and dominated there, which they liked.

I worked for a year in healthcare before becoming a lawyer.

I went to a T6.

My law firm work doesn't really relate and it's not a fancy firm. I think at best it just made them feel comfortable because, hey, someone else already paid me a ton of money to do shit and hasn't fired me.

I think they were mainly interested because of my academic credentials and my prior exposure to the field. Then I just destroyed the interview.
