Interviewing Tips Seminar

Legal employers use a variety of interviewing styles to evaluate candidates, including conversational, substantive, and behavioural questions. In addition to formal interviews, legal employers may also hold receptions, dinners, On-Campus Interviews (OCIs), and other "interview-like" events to assess candidates. 

At this seminar, the CSO will share practical tips about how to best highlight your skills and experience during an interview with a legal employer, whether those interviews are held in-person or virtually. This seminar will be helpful for interviews with law firms, government organizations (like WorkSafeBC), public interest organizations (such as the Public Interest Work Placement Program positions), and other legal employers. 

This session is aimed at 1L, LLM CL, and upper year students who did not attend previous year’s versions of this seminar, but all students (including 2Ls participating in the upcoming virtual OCIs and in-firm interviews) are welcome to attend. 

We also recommend reviewing our Interviewing Guide, available in ACE's Resource Library.
