Interview update

On a non-TTC note, I realized that I never posted about my interview last Friday.  To put it in a nutshell, I thought it went well.  The managing partner ended the interview by telling me that they weren't sure whether they were going to hire another associate at this time but that they would decide at a partners' meeting on Tuesday (today) and get back to me.


I got a call today from a partner I know at the firm where I had the interview.  (She is a woman a few years older than I with whom I have worked on a few cases in my three years in my current position.  We have some shared interests and have become friendly.  She provided my resume to the hiring partner in the first place.)  The partners decided at their meeting today that they do not have a need to hire an additional associate at this time.

Interestingly, though she told me that they are looking to bring in an additional partner within the next 30-60 days and that, between that and business picking up with the end of summer, they may be looking to hire an associate in 2-3 months.  She told me that the hiring partner (and all the partners who met me) really liked me, and that the hiring partner specifically asked her to ask me to let them know if I am offered a position elsewhere within the next couple of months, so that perhaps they can reevaluate at that time.

So no job offer, but not all bad news.  The partner I know observed that it didn't sound like I am in a big hurry to find something else, which is true, and said she is optimistic that they may be able to offer me a position in the not-so-distant future.  So perhaps this will lead to something after all; we'll see.

  2. Yay! I laughed when I read "associate." That's my title too, and I always feel like a member of a drug cartel or something. ;)

    Good luck! It sounds very promising!!!!! Way to win them over!
