This program will focus on helping practicing and reentering lawyers fine tune their interviewing techniques. Panelists also will discuss how lawyer candidates can best present themselves during the interview process, including how to handle difficult questions about issues such gaps in one’s resume and commitment to the profession. In addition, panelists will discuss how candidates can maximize the information they elicit from employers with whom they are interviewing. Finally, our expert panelists will discuss what should happen after the interview, once candidates receive offers—that is, how to systematically assess offers received, and how to negotiate with employers regarding issues, such as, schedule, seniority, title, salary, etc.
