Try To Stand Out, Interview Structure, Protocol
During a somewhat dry on-campus interview that took place at the end of the day, a partner asked a 2L candidate what he thought about the interviewing process. The student turned the interview around with a witty answer. He pondered for a second and said, “On-campus interviewing is like speed-dating. There are many different suitors. Many are attractive. Some carry the promise of a second date, and some do not. Then, there are all these talks about needing to see other people.” The partner was very pleased with this answer, and the candidate received a callback for thinking on his feet.
This speed-dating metaphor really sums up the key features of on-campus interviewing. Similar to dating, an on-campus interview involves getting to know someone in a very short time, convincing him or her that you are an attractive candidate, and sounding interesting enough for him or her to want to see you again.
