Major Differences, Big Firm, Big Budget, Smaller Firm, Smaller Budget

This chapter addresses the major differences between interviewing at big and small firms. But be aware that there are many variations in interviewing styles at different firms, and many firms, especially medium-sized firms, which are not discussed here, may fall at any spot on the spectrum. This chapter provides general advice for interviewing at larger (200-plus attorneys) and smaller (50 or less attorneys) firms. After reviewing this chapter, reread How to Do Your Homework and conduct firm-specific research to determine which approach to take.
