Law Job Auditions

By October 6, 2012

Follow me on:

In today's job market, employers are making candidates jump through more hoops than ever to land a job.  But one law firm has taken the interview process a step further.

A mortgage litigation firm in California and created a Survivor-like process in which a group of job candidates compete for an associate position by completing weekly paid assignments.  Each week, a candidate is eliminated and the final candidate wins the job.  According to the job ad:

"Each day the candidate with the weakest work product will be cut until one candidate remains. This process will take one or two weeks until the final candidate is offered on-going employment. If you have seen reality television shows where contestants are cut from episode to episode such as Top Chef, Top Shot or Project Runway -- it will be like this. Do you have what it takes to be Top Associate?"

The firm describes its unique approach as a "rigorous, competitive evaluation process."  What do you think?
