    How long should you wait following an assessment centre before you start chasing up for an outcome? I know people who have had ACs after mine and have heard back but it’s not been even 2 weeks yet.

    Yeah PFO from Macfarlanes VC, I did predict it since I applied mid December. Quite gutting as it was the app I put the most time into and went to the events etc.

    I’ve got an assessment centre with Osborne Clarke coming up and I was pleasantly surprised to receive a care package from them today with a good luck note, high protein snacks and teas and coffees! I thought it was a really nice gesture and haven’t had this sort of experience with other firms.

    I’m not saying they can’t or shouldn’t use this forum as a sense of community but many posts including the one mentioned do come across quite poorly in my opinion because they fail to recognise their own success and continue to put themselves down when they’re in a much better position to many...

    I understand we all set our own standards of failure and success etc but I feel like this is a slightly tone deaf thing to say during one of the most difficult job markets in recent history.

    For anybody still waiting to hear back from Macfarlanes post-app, GR have told me they’re still reviewing applications and hope to let all applicants know by mid-March. Does anybody know if they’re still running assessment centres in March?
