Q: A point on a prior column (regarding researching your interviewers): As someone who often interviews candidates, I sometimes find it a little creepy when the candidate lets me know that (s)he’s researched me — there is a stalker aspect to that.

I think the candidate should feel free to ask a litigator about a case the litigator worked on while at the current firm (or the equivalent question of a corporate lawyer). It is not appropriate, however, to ask an interviewer a question that doesn’t relate specifically to the work, i.e., “So I saw that you went to XXX law school. How did you like that?”
