Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.
Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.
The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.
Paralegals are qualified professionals who undergo extensive education and training in the legal field but are not qualified lawyers. Paralegals are often employed by legal firms where they assist lawyers by doing research that can help them build a strong case.
Graduating with a law degree is the first step towards becoming a paralegal but by itself, it is not enough. You will need to undergo further training to gain knowledge of the procedural and practical aspects of the profession. The best way to obtain this training is by doing an internship under the mentorship of an experienced paralegal or a practicing lawyer. Thorough knowledge of the law is important for this role and so is a love for research. Paralegals spend the major part of their work day going through the legal library searching for precedents and other legal information that the lawyer can use to leverage their case.
Be prepared to showcase your knowledge of the law as well as your knowledge of a paralegal's duties and responsibilities at your interview. The interviewer will ask you questions about your internship or work experience. They will want to know who you interned with and what kinds of tasks you helped out with. You may also be asked questions about how you conduct the research to get the information required for a particular case.
Going for the interview well prepared will boost your chances of getting hired. You can prepare for your upcoming paralegal interview by browsing through mock interview questions and planning your replies in advance.
