How do others in the field who have gone through interviews view the following question (paraphrased to make it nice and generic):
"Where else have you applied? Who have you heard back from? Why aren't you being offered a job at the place you work now? Are you going to be offered a job at the place you work now? What other interviews have you been on/will you be going on?"
I'm not gonna lie....I HATE HATE HATE these types of questions. I think they are rude and intrusive and put the student/interviewee in a really bad position. I mean, hello, I'm a 3L....OF COURSE I'm looking/applying/interviewing at other places. DUH! I don't think it's anyone's business where else I'm applying, where else I've interviewed, or whether or not I might take a job somewhere else if it's offered. The focus of an interview should be on the job, on my abilities and on how I could/would/might fit into the organization and whether I'd be the best candidate for what the organization needs.
Anyway, I guess that's my rant on that subject. If anyone knows anything about these types of questions or has experiences/comments/insights they'd like the share -- I'd love to hear it.
