The student now talks to a number of lawyers from the firm and has the opportunity to form a broader understanding of firm culture, while the firm has multiple, iterated chats with a specific applicant and can draw on the insights of a number of lawyers in forming the best decision before extending a callback.In a way, the traditional model of flitting from one isolated interaction to another is actually more like speed dating than what Herrick’s doing.So imagine 12 local companies who specifically hire developers, all being in the same place, with the same objective: to find Sacramento’s best and brightest.Now, imagine 100 skilled coders who are looking to either meet other coders or hang their hat with a company that will put their talents to good use.From San Diego to Singapore, Hacker X helps organize one of a kind opportunities for developers to meet with and learn more about the most innovative and fastest growing tech companies in a casual environment.Events are invite-only and Hacker X vets both individuals and companies to assure the highest caliber of participants.And, let’s be honest, most of those 20-minute interviews are just time-killing exercises after a student is already plucked off the sheet based on their 1L transcript making the traditional model more like an in-person Tinder session than a substantive blind date.That said, there are some potential downsides here worth considering.

When you think about it, they both lead to the same emotional roller coaster: the thrill of that initial nibble of interest; the wild, intoxicated honeymoon of the summer; the grim reality of your first year; the nerve-racking senior days as you wait out the partnership proposal because you’re not getting any younger; and then you’re either dumped in favor of the next younger class or you settle into a lifetime of boring missionary legal practice.
