    Hello everyone! I have just been invited to Eversheds Sutherland's video interview and I was wondering if anyone has any advice or can relay any experience with the process? I am quite anxious, as the the application consisted solely of competency-based questions, I wonder if it is the same for the video interview.

    Hi

    Happy to help.

    There will be 5 questions. You will have 1 min prep time and 2 mins to answer each question.

    2 questions are future focussed. Explain what would you do in the described scenarios.

    3 questions are past on your past experiences.

    They will be strengths-based questions, and you will be expected to explain what you would/would not enjoy.

    Hope this helps.

    Best regards

    Fez

    Yes! I completed it today. It was mostly situational judgment questions. Practising the practice question they provided in the briefing document is really helpful.

    VI Tip - practice for general questions like - why law, why commercial law, why firm

    And know examples of competency skills :)

    I practice using the mirror or record myself on camera a couple of times then review my answers.

    You can memorise most of it - but try to not sound too robotic during the actual VI

    Take pauses when you speak
