Lawyers are extremely busy people. Thus, as with a real job interview, please take this experience seriously. That is, arrive on time to your mock interview, dress appropriately for an interview, and be prepared. Preparation includes bringing copies of your resume, having questions to ask the interviewer, and knowing a bit about the attorney and his/her firm or organization.
If you have any questions or to sign up for a mock interview, please stop by or call the CPPO (330-972-8540).
