Outside Counsel Interested In Being Interviewed
Law firm attendees will have a chance to participate in informational interviews with corporate and government representatives to discuss outside counsel opportunities.
The TMCP is an opportunity to network and form new business relationships. The conference is not a job fair, nor is there any guarantee that you will receive work as a result of the interview process. We hope to provide you with an opportunity to meet with in-house lawyers and tell them about your practice area. This introduction is the first step to getting your name known by the organization so that you can be considered for future work opportunities.
- Signing Up and Submitting Your Résumé
First, register for the conference. After your registration is received, you will be e-mailed a link to upload (1) a personal résumé, and (2) a firm résumé, including a narrative description of your firm’s practice, area(s) of expertise, and all office locations. If your personal résumé already includes this information, you may omit the firm résumé. To be considered for pre-selection, your résumé(s) must be received by the early registration deadline.
A list of interviewing companies can be found on this webpage. You will be notified via e-mail at least one week prior to the conference whether you have been pre-selected for an informational interview. If you are preselected, your e-mail will include the interview date and time, the interviewing company and, if available, the name of the interviewer.
- On-Site Sign-up
Limited on-site interview sign-up will be available on a first-come, first-served basis for pre-scheduled time slots that are still available. At the conference, your registration packet will include instructions. All interviews are 15-minute consecutive sessions, unless otherwise noted. Some corporations may request to speak with you and a colleague simultaneously, as a firm. In that case, a joint session will be conducted.
In-House Counsel Interested In Conducting Interviews
Corporate and government representatives will have the opportunity to meet a diverse pool of outside counsel by conducting informational interviews at the conference. We make it easy by: 1) compiling credentials in an online database to review; and 2) providing an area at the conference to have one-on-one meetings with whomever you select.
- Signing Up
To register to conduct interviews on behalf of your company, complete the registration form in the TMCP Sponsorship brochure found here: [Coming Soon – 2012 TMCP Sponsorship Brochure].
Pre-selection gives your organization an opportunity to select attorneys prior to the conference to ensure that you meet outside counsel with the skill sets that are needed by your organization – either now or in the future. The representatives from your company who will be conducting interviews will receive instructions via e-mail on how to access résumés. Limited on-site interview sign-up will be available for attendees on a first-come, first-served basis if you leave time slots available for them to do so.
