    Did the interview lastnight, was bloody shocking. Here are some of the question I remember:

    1. What are the advantages and disadvantages of SQE
    2. Tell us about a time when you had to change the mode of communication
    3. Something about the challenges for lawyers, but more nuanced than that
    4. When did you work in a team to get a more effective result

    You get 90 seconds, and as you're encouraged to look at the camera and not the screen you don't realise time slipping away from you.

    Hi everyone! I had my video interview with Baker McKenzie today and I thought I would post the questions I encountered in this thread for anyone who has it in this cycle. I don't remember them word for word, but this is basically the essence of it-

    1) Tell us about a setback you've had and how you came out of it
    2) Tell us about a time when your team member was not doing their task and how you addressed this
    3) What do you think keeps CEOs up at night?
    4) How do you prioritize different tasks and schedule them?
    5) Tell us an interesting fact about yourself (a hobby, an interest etc.)


    You have 45 seconds to prepare and 90 seconds to answer, except for the last question in the interview, for which you get 60 seconds.


    You also get to practice a question as many times as you want before you begin the interview, which I think is incredibly useful.

    There is a break between your answer and the next question. Pretty sure that you need to click 'next' or 'continue' to move to the next question :)
