What Not to Ask

“how Much Will I Make?”, “what Is The Quality Of Life Here?”

A law job interview is very similar to a first date. You must make a good first impression if you want to receive a follow-up invitation. You already have what it takes to get your foot in the door—you would not get an interview if you did not. Now you must also show your interviewer that you are sociable, likeable, and normal. As with first dates, your conversation with potential employers should be pleasant and lighthearted. Just as you would not want to ask about your blind date's income, age, or weight, you do not want to ask intrusive questions at your first interview. The key to a successful interview is to stay away from intrusive topics and avoid the questions in this chapter.
