Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today, we have ex-BigLaw recruiter Sadie Jones back with us to talk about how the traditional OCI process (including interviews, callbacks, and offers) has changed this year because of the pandemic.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Have firms started to hire early this year?
  • How to handle a potential bad grade from the Fall 2020 semester
  • How to best set up for virtual interviews
  • What are some good questions to ask in an interview?
  • What to do in case of tech issues during the interview?
  • Sending thank-you notes
  • The logistics of callback interviews
  • Is it okay to ask for feedback on why you didn't get a callback or offer?
  • What to consider when deciding which offer to accept if you receive more than one
  • What should your next step be if you don't get an offer?
