    WBD Video Interview

    I'm in the same position! Hoping to do it tomorrow but wanted to give myself a good amount of time to prep. Wouldn't worry about the reminders - I'm sure they just do it to make sure you haven't missed the invite.

    Hi everyone I'm a career changer currently doing the LPC and VS applications, but of course have my moments of doubt where I don't feel too hopeful about landing a training contract this cycle. Does anyone know of any smaller firms who recruit less than two years in advance but still offer...

    Out of interest, what dates are they offering you for the AC? I'm still waiting to hear back after the VI, but really hoping there will be dates early Feb if I do get an invite otherwise I'll have no time to prepare after exams!

    Yes, here is the wording of their email: Thanks for getting in touch, I can confirm that the deadline is 5 days from receipt of the link, so as you were sent the link on 29/12/2021, the deadline is 03/01/2022 at 23:59.

    If this is for CMS it means 11:59pm on 3 Jan. Mine is the same and I checked with graduate recruitment today. I was sent the invite on 29 December and you have five days 😊 If it’s another firm probably best to check with them!
