Q: What’s the one thing lawyers shouldn’t say at an interview?
A: There’s more than one thing to avoid saying. But because you should focus on what you can do rather than on what you could get, one of the things so many lawyers say that they shouldn’t is how much they could learn from the job to further their career.
Focus, instead, on what you would contribute to further the interests of the clients and the workplace, not just your own. And don’t look past the job you are interviewing for, even before it is offered.
