CONVERSATION 会话
(A=Applicant I=Interviewer)

I: Let抯 begin by having you tell me about yourself and your background.
A: I have been working as a paralegal for the last 10 months through an agency that specializes in the legal field. My experience has been supporting attorneys in the field of labor law, where I have been able to apply my paralegal education. I was commended on my ability to take information and break it down into usable facts. I really love research and analyzing facts. My major in college was English, and as a result, my writing skills are my major strength. I am looking for a position where my research and writing skills can be used.
I: What do you think are the key qualities needed to succeed in the paralegal profession?
A: Flexibility would certainly rank high in this type of job. In my last position, I supported four lawyers, and it was not unusual for them all to give me high-priority items to do in the same day or week. There were days when I had to stop and prioritize my work just to get a handle on everything. I would discuss the urgency of their work with each of them so I didn抰 drop the ball. At the same time, I made sure each of them felt like his or her project was important on my agenda. I think communication is probably the next key quality. It really worked well when I talked with each of them, explained my situation, and got their input.
I: Can you give me an example of a time when you had to work above and beyond your job description?
A: There was a very important project that had to be researched and completed by the end of the week. Even though I worked extra hours every night for almost two weeks, my boss and I stayed until 2 a.m. for two nights before the final wrap up. It was very rewarding to have put so much effort into a project and see the really great results. My boss gave me a bonus for my extra effort.
I: Tell me about a time when you had to research a case and encountered some obstacles you had to overcome.
A: I remember a case that was filled with obstacles. The first thing I did was research through documents and past cases that had similar circumstances. I assembled the facts and then tried to put them together and analyze the next step. I was able to get some input from another lawyer I happened to see at lunch. Through some hard work and fact digging, I was able to find a way to overcome most of the obstacles. I took my findings to my boss and made some recommendations, which she and I discussed and eventually resolved. My boss was impressed with the work I had done.
I: What are your strengths and weaknesses?
A: My strengths are my caring about getting the job done. I am very results-driven and have been able to meet all my deadlines in past jobs. As far as weaknesses, I really enjoy my work, and sometimes I put in too much time. But I am aware of my tendency to overwork and have learned to pace myself more.
I: Tell me about a time when you had a confrontation with a coworker or boss.
A: I did have an issue with someone who was getting on my nerves. I asked her if I could talk with her one day, and we had a good discussion. It turned out she was not aware of the impact of her actions and that she really needed an explanation of the procedure. I took the time to explain the procedures, and there haven抰 been any problems since that day.
I: When do you find a job satisfying?
A: My biggest satisfaction is when I experience growth in a job. When I first started as a paralegal, I had a lot to learn. But through hard work, advice from some good mentors and continuing education, I have come a long way. I抳e learned to be flexible when possible and to deal with difficult people in a positive manner.
I: How would your coworkers describe you?
A: First, they抎 say I have a lot of energy and enthusiasm. I really enjoy working with people. Secondly, they抎 say I had great customer service skills. I put the customer first. And thirdly, they抎 say that I know the law. I put a lot of effort into my education as a paralegal and take it seriously.
I: Do you have any questions?
A: Yes, I do. On a scale of one to 10, what would you say morale was in this company?

I: 讲讲你自己和你的背景,我们开始面试吧。
A: 过去的十个月,我一直在一家法律专业代理处做律师专职助理。我的工作就是在劳动法领域为法律事务代理人提供帮助,这样我就可以应用所学到的律师助理方面的知识于工作中。我具有获取信息并能把它们转变成可用事实的能力,这一点受到了人们的称赞,而且我喜欢调查和分析事实。我大学时的专业是英语,所以写作技能是我的专业特长。我希望找一份能发挥我调查和写作技能的工作。
I: 你认为作为一名律师助理,取得成功的关键品质是什么?
A: 在这类工作中,灵活性当然排第一位。我的前一份工作就是帮助四位律师,他们经常会在同一天或者同一个星期各自给我同样重要的工作去做。有时候,我必须把我的工作分出优先级,以便把每一份工作都做好。我会和他们每一个人商量一下工作的紧要程度,这样我就不会误事。同时我使他们每个人都确信在我的日程当中他(她)的工作是重要的。我认为第二重要的品质就是沟通能力。每次我和他们讨论问题时,这一点都很有帮助。我把我的处境说给他们听,听取他们的意见。
I: 你能给我举一个你必须加班而且超出你的工作范围的例子吗?
A: 曾经有一个非常重要的项目必须在周末之前调查清楚并完成。尽管我每晚加班都快两周了,有两个晚上我和老板还是工作到凌晨两点,直到完成。在一个项目上付出很大努力并能得到这么好的结果,是很值得的。对我的额外工作,老板嘉奖了我。
I: 讲讲你某一次为了调查一个案例,遇到了许多困难,但你必须克服这些困难的经历。
A: 我记得有一个案例遇到了很多障碍。我首先要做的就是调查清楚所有文档以及过去类似情形的案例,我将所有证据都收集起来,放在一起,等着下一步进行分析。碰巧在吃午饭时我遇到另一位律师,从他那里获得了一些信息。经过刻苦工作和对事实依据进行挖掘,我找到了一条能克服大部分困难的途径。 我把我的发现告诉了老板,并提出了一些建议,最后经过讨论,困难都解决了。老板对我所做的工作非常满意。
I: 你有哪些优点和缺点?
A: 我的优点就是一定要把工作完成。我是一个不达目的誓不罢休的人,而且在过去我总能完成我所做的工作。就我的缺点而言,我真的非常喜欢我的工作,有时在上面投入了太多的时间。但我已意识到了这一点,懂得适当调节自己。
I: 告诉我你有没有和同事或者老板发生过冲突?
A: 我确实和一个让我心烦的人有过争端。我问她哪天能不能跟她谈谈,我们就好好地讨论了一番。但她并没有意识到其所作所为的影响,也没有意识到她需要别人给她解释一下工作。最后我花时间给她解释了一下工作流程,从那以后就再也没有出现过什么问题。
I: 你什么时候觉得工作令你最满意?
A: 我最大的满足感就是当我体验工作中的成长的时候。我开始做律师助理时,有很多东西要学。但是经过我的刻苦工作,从良师益友那里得到一些建议以及深入学习,我已经懂得了很多。我学会了尽可能灵活些,以积极的态度和难以相处的人打交道。
I: 你的同事怎样评价你呢?
A: 首先,他们会说我是一个充满活力和热情的人,因为我非常喜欢和人一起工作。其次,他们会说我非常懂得客户服务技巧。我把客户放在第一位。第三点就是他们会说我懂法律,我读律师助理时付出了很多努力,并且我非常认真地对待它。
I: 你有什么问题要问吗?
A: 有,以十分来计,你认为贵公司员工的士气如何?
