After the OCIs, we invite students we are interested in for an in-firm interview (during the time frame prescribed in the jurisdiction). During these interviews, students have the opportunity to meet many more members of the firm and get a better idea of the people and work environment Cassels’ offers. We also invite all candidates out to dinner during this interview period so they can get to know us a little better outside the office as well.
Here are a few things to keep in mind for our in-firm interviews:
- We will send you a confirmation email a few days before your interview to let you know who will be interviewing you. Please note that your designated interviewer is subject to change. Don’t get thrown off if you meet someone unexpected – we know you can’t foresee the future and we don’t expect you to know anything about your new interviewer.
- You will be assigned a firm host – likely an articling student or first year associate. Your host will bring you around the firm, introduce you to people, and answer any questions you may have – please don’t be shy in making use of this resource.
- Our dinners are an important part of our interview process. We really hope you will be able to join us and get to know us a in a more relaxed setting. We also know how grueling the interview process is. Our dinners are full of delicious food and stimulating conversation, but they end at a very reasonable hour so that everyone can get a good night’s sleep and be their best selves the next day.
- We know you have important decisions to make during this process – please don’t hesitate to ask for the information you need to make an informed decision.
