    Congrats on your GDL results! Its been a damn tough year of remote learning and lockdowns so its amazing you have achieved so much in a tough time. I doubt this will cause any issues. I got a couple of surprise mid-high 50's, as did my friends. My GDL results were never brought up in my TC/VS...

    I'm so sorry, it's such a tough process. Treat yourself, take a break and try not to be hard on yourself. The fact you secured a vacation scheme is testament that you a strong candidate and in itself such an achievement!

    I've known this news for a while now, but I've now been given permission to share it. Guys, I got the call. I've been offered a Training Contract with TLT! I remember turning up to my first AC wearing £5 ASDA pumps that I'd had to superglue the night before as I couldn't afford to buy a new...

    Hi all. Sorry I haven't been on here much as I have just started a new job so things are a bit hectic! I was wondering if anyone has heard from Penningtons post-AC (London office)?

    Has anyone else had confirmation of vacation scheme dates with TLT? I have just started a new job and I am worried about booking annual leave. I have emailed TLT a couple of times (late last week and early today) and have had no response. I am a bit concerned as one of the proposed dates was...

    Sorry I have just seen this (I have started a new job so I've not been able to check on here as much!). My biggest advice would be to think about how you structure your response. I definitely felt like I was a bit too focused in trying to show off my commercial awareness/analysis and got...

    Just got a call with a post-case study rejection from Mishcon. Genuinely gutted to have not got to the interview stage. Hopefully others got some better news!

    Congrats on getting an interview! I secured a vacation scheme with them last year and really enjoyed the interview. I recommend that you review your own experience, and think of examples you can apply to competency based questions. I found in my interview that I was asked the same competency...

    Just got a call inviting me to the TLT vacation scheme! Only did the AC yesterday so I am surprised to have heard back so quickly.

    Last year I received an interview invite with them around mid-February. But I wouldn't be surprised if things were a bit delayed this year. Hopefully you'll hear back soon!

    I was in exactly in the same situation - you're certainly not alone :) Thank you for being so open. Your tenacity is inspiring. I applied for about 13 firms last cycle whilst doing the GDL. I received 3 ACs invites (I was on the reserve list for one vacation scheme, accepted another and I...

    I have an AC with TLT which consists of a group assessment. I've not done a group assessment in ages, I'm sorry if this may have already been asked, but does anyone have any advice?
