Fallout From a Mock Interview

Posted: January 27, 2009 in Lessons

So I bought the old “practice makes perfect” line and did a mock interview last night. Been interviewed many times in my day, but this was the first for a job in the legal profession.

And it was good. But not for what I thought it would be.

My “interviewer” specializes in labor & employment law at the firm Epstein, Becker & Green. Turned out that she had gone back to law school in sort of a midlife crisis like yours truly, so we did less of the “let’s play interview” part and spent more time with her giving me advice – and me doing some very important listening.

She was a straight shooter, and I think I’ve been wanting that for a long time now. I have been struggling to find my story – why I’m here, and where I’m going. She told me now’s a good time to figure that out.

So I’m on it. Jody & I had one of our good, long talks last night, and we’re not far from being able to answer those important questions. We need to sleep on it a couple more days to be sure, but we’ll get there.

And from my perspective, it’s about time.
