I really am at a loss after three cycles, I used all the resources I could get from my university careers service to TCLA, but really feels like I'm never actually going to secure anything.
I was very much thinking about my USPs and how I could sell myself to firms. I decided my ability to speak a few foreign languages was probably my best asset so Polyglot seemed like an obvious choice.
I emailed a local firm in Sixth Form to enquire about getting some work experience/shadowing. They emailed back "I'm very sorry to say that the only solicitor in our team who can accommodate you during that week is David. You're very welcome to join him but he's a bit of a dull arsehole. Yours respectfully, David". He was the most lovely human being I've ever met and a truly incredible lawyer.Email from Fieldfisher that includes the words 'I am sorry..' but then goes on to apologize for the wait in hearing back... defo thought that was a PFO for a full minute
