Groom’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee will be hosting a Zoom workshop, “Telling Your Story: Interviewing in the Age of Zoom,” on Wednesday, November 18 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. Developed to help rising 2Ls navigate virtual interviews for their 2nd summer position with a focus on diverse candidates*, the session will provide tips and best practices for interviewing skills with an option to participate in a future mock interview with an experienced Groom attorney. For more information and to register, see below. Space is limited.

Nervous about OCI?  Not sure how to tell your best story on a Zoom interview?

Join our virtual workshop where attorneys experienced at Zoom interviews will offer tips and tricks to make the best impression.  From how to make a virtual connection to technical considerations, we will provide concrete steps to put your mind at ease during this unique interviewing season – so you can focus on substance and telling your story.  We also will walk through interview “dos and don’ts” (Zoom or otherwise).

We will follow up with voluntary mock Zoom interviews with Groom attorneys – to be scheduled at mutually agreeable times.  From logging on to clicking off, you’ll practice just like your virtual OCI interviews.

Our workshop is open to anyone, with a focus on diverse candidates.*
