My friend worked last summer as one of four summer associates at a 40-attorney firm and was receiving every encouragement on a job offer which did not materialize at summer's end. Only two offeres were made. The main partner assured my pal that his work had nothing to do with the decision; the firm's financials were down and there was nothing they could do beside providing him a glowing letter of reference. How does he address this in interviews without having to wipe the sour grapes off his chin?
