Fresher Interview

In Kolkata, a fresh law graduate created quite a buzz on social media when he interviewed for an litigation associate position with some unusual demands. Unlike typical job seekers, this candidate expressed a desire for a four-day work week, with only four hours of work per day. His reason? He confessed to not liking going to court and preferred a desk job. On top of that, he surprised the interviewer by requesting a monthly salary of Rs 50,000.

Advocate and interviewer Jhuma Sen, who had the encounter, shared the story on Twitter, amazed by the young graduate’s unconventional approach. Her tweet read, “Interviewed a fresher for a litigation associate post who wants 4 days work week, 4 hrs/day work (because he doesn’t like going to court and will only be in chamber he said), and 50K salary in Kolkata. Bless this generation.”

While Kolkata is known for its affordability compared to other Indian cities, many Twitter users expressed surprise at the candidate’s high salary expectations. Mercer’s 2023 Cost of Living survey, covering 227 cities worldwide, ranked Kolkata at 211 in terms of cost of living. Mumbai and Delhi ranked higher, at 147 and 169, respectively.

Fellow advocate Satadeep Bhattacharyya (@satadeepb) responded to Sen’s tweet, wondering about the kind of ideas about litigation this generation is graduating with from law school. He pointed out that hard work and dedication play crucial roles in career growth. While the candidate’s demands might seem bold, it remains to be seen how it will impact his future career.
