Hi all, if I received a VS offer firm but was unable to accept this offer, do I mention this under the same section I talked about a VS I had at another firm? Or should I leave it out? Thanks! :)
No - you leave it out unfortunately.

People don’t highlight what they chose not to do in applications.

I’d wait to see if you are successful at getting an interview, and if you are, at that stage then inform them of the discrepancy.

It does matter, but there’s little point informing them until you know you have been shortlisted.

Apply to Shearman & Sterling's vacation schemes by 16 January 2022!
Want to work for a global elite law firm? Shearman & Sterling's vacation schemes will see you experience two diverse practice groups (one each week), with your personal preferences catered to.

The scheme aims to mirror the Training Contract in that everyone will experience at least one of the firm's core transactional groups (M&A, Finance and Project Development & Finance) as well as being allocated a mentor and supervisor to provide advice and support, answer any questions and most importantly – provide you with some work!

Apply by 16 January 2022!
