Specializing now can prove lucrative over the course of a legal career.
ONGOING OR COMPLETE INVESTIGATION SETS THE STAGE FOR THE approach and contact of employers. It is too difficult to tailor your background to each employer, even if the employers all practice in your field of interest. However, the other extreme - a rigid, unvarying approach - will fail to attract a particular employer's interest.
When you are fielding questions at a legal job interview your answers must be direct and to the point, as short as is humanly possible, and must end either in your silence or in a question for the interviewer which may or may not be related to the question he asked you. Remember that your objective in a legal job interview is to keep the interviewer talking as much as possible; keep the ball in his court!
