Avoiding an Interview Faux Pas

Mispronouncing the name of the law firm you are interviewing at likely will not impress your prospective employer.  To avoid a pronunciation faux pas, Georgetown Law has developed a Law Firm Pronunciation Guide which contains audio clips of the pronunciation of the names of many large law firms across the country.

Other resource that can help you brush up on your interview etiquette include the Career Services guide Preparing for the Interview, which is available online to ASU Law students, and the books Maximize Your Lawyer Potential: Professionalism and Business Etiquette for Law Students and Lawyers and Knock ‘em Dead: The Ultimate Job Search Guide, both available in the Law Library’s Study Skills Collection.   These resources addresses telephone interviews, how to dress for an interview, responding to interview questions, appropriate interview follow-up, and more.

We wish you the best in your upcoming interviews!
