An open letter to the law firms I've talked to the past two days, and the next two days:

Dear law firm,

I'm very happy that I (have had/will have) the opportunity to talk to you this week. Everything I told you about your firm and myself was absolutely true; any lies were in the emphasis or the omissions. Just remember as Homer Simpson said, it takes two to lie, one to lie and one to listen.

Really, I wouldn't have interviewed with you if I didn't see some scenario where I end up working for you. Please remember that just like you (had/will have) many very similar conversations (yesterday/today/tomorrow/on Thursday), I (have also talked/will also talk) to any number of you as well. Admittedly, the conversations have been more diverse than I was led to believe--probably because there are so many strange things on my resume that each of you (has/will probably) pick(ed) something different to focus on. Please also note that I (will) have had so many interviews that I am forgetting the name of my classmates, let alone you folks, so please try to be understanding.

Also, enjoy anything you find here and remember the context, that this is a personal blog written mostly to be read by a handful of friends and occasionally to try (and fail) to be witty. Career Services has told us twice to "clean up our blogs" which would be a great idea in a world where Google didn't have a "cached" option. I don't think I've ever mentioned a law firm by name here, nor will I in the coming months except to eventually thank one of you for giving me a summer job, so poking around for what I have to say about you will be a big waste of time, but feel free. In the highly unlikely scenario that I think you or your firm is The Devil (really, only true of one of you so far), I will keep that opinion to myself--which includes not mentioning it here, not telling my colleagues who may choose to work there anyway, not telling my parents who wouldn't understand or care, and not posting to the various allegedly anonymous message boards some of my colleagues inhabit.

In short, thanks for your time, and I won't take it personally if you forget everything we (discussed/will discuss) in the interview and hire based on our transcripts. Hell, that may even work out better for me.

Sincerely,

Joseph K. Wright ("Joe")

P.S.: If you are the one interviewer with whom I thought the conversation went really well only to find out 5 minutes after the interview that my fly had been open for the previous hour, I sincerely hope that your attention to detail is not as high as I claimed that mine is.

If you don alone make the decision regarding who will be placed in charge of purchasing, but instead you and some other people are to vote for who will purchase for the group collectively, your likelihood of getting a who will purchase according to your wishes is further reduced, as is your control over that individual.
