In this episode of Counsel to Counsel, I speak with my colleague Amy Levine about strategies for success in job interviews.

In the 30 years since I graduated from law school, the rules about interviewing have remained largely the same; but with the explosion of social media and the web in general, there are some things that have changed.

One big thing that has changed is that lawyers change jobs a lot more frequently. So keeping your interviewing skills sharp is important.

One of the things that I do as a recruiter is help my candidates prepare for interviews. I also sit in an office where I get to hear my colleagues do the same. And for the last four years, I have been listening to my colleague Amy Levine do a great job of helping her candidates to get ready (for informal interviews, first round interviews and later round interviews.)

Amy is Vice President of Marc Z Legal and she has been working in the legal professional for over fifteen years. She has held roles in marketing and human resources at the Boston firms of Hale and Dorr (which is now Wilmer Hale) and Goulston and Storrs. For the past 10 years she has been recruiting a broad mix of attorney, paralegal and support staff for major law firms and corporations.

In this episode, Amy shares some great interviewing tips that come from many years of speaking with clients and candidates.

Like anything, interviewing is a skill that takes practice. If you have an interview coming up and would like to discuss it with someone, please don't hesitate to reach out to Stephen Seckler at legal@seckler.com or Amy Levine at amy@marczlegal.com.
