Vivia Chen with The Careerist describes how the easy, breezy days of callbacks after a simple interview are disappearing.  Besides the “behavior interview” (a psychological assessment that measures your work style – see blog post of May 6, 2011), there’s now an even more grueling interview–one that focuses on legal acumen – the “three-pronged interview.”  As described by Ms. Chen, quoting US News and World Report:
