I had an interview with the first big law firm. I thought it didn’t go well at all. I just couldn’t get the girl to warm up to me.
I fell into a pretty serious depression after that. I just couldn’t get a hold of myself. In an effort to be supportive, people started telling me bad things about this firm. They’re boring, its nothing but insurance, I’ll never see the inside of a courtroom, etc.
Supportive people, “They suck.”
Me, “Yeah, they totally suck. SO glad I didn’t get a call back.”
This morning after my run, I went to my mailbox expecting to see one of those “sorry but we aren’t going to hire you letters”. Instead, there was a fancy envelope with an invitation to come to the firm for more interviews.
Woohoo – I’m going! I got a call back!
