Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today, we have ex-BigLaw recruiter Sadie Jones with us to discuss how to make sure you're showing an "appropriate" level of interest in a job position.

In this episode we discuss:

  • What are employers and interviewers generally looking for in terms of an applicant's interest?
  • Should you spend time researching the interviewer (if you've been given a name), or focus more on the company/firm?
  • Tips for showing an appropriate level of interest in your cover letter, and during the networking and interviewing processes
  • What are some good (and bad) ways to answer the question "Why does this position interest you?"
  • Examples of questions to ask in an interview during question time
