Funny how I'm more intimidated by HR/recruitment professionals than Partners and Managers. It's partly becaue HR professionals are so friendly. Of course I'm not against friendliness, but it can be difficult to know whether they're really interested in you (be it over the phone or face-to-face) if they issue the same smile and nod everytime, as if they were the doctors and you the patient. In a way these sort of interviews demand this - they are diagnosing your suitability for the job. But Partners, they seem to want a conversation! They'll scowl slightly, raise their eyebrows, chuckle with acknowledgement and ask you genuie questions, as if you were a client they had already built a rapport with.
