Hello everyone, I have been trying to draft an answer to the following question, which is one of the questions for Paul Hastings training contract application. The question is "Please give details of any extracurricular activities and responsibilities. Describe any personal achievements and your level of involvement." I am struggling to write an answer to this question because since university, I didn't do any extracurricular activities or take on any responsibilities. If I am not at university, I am mainly working and that meant I don't have anything to say. Now, I have considered talking about my part-time work but I didn't think there is anything impressive. So, the next thing that I do is to consider activities that I have done after university, i.e. while working. I attended law firms networking events, volunteered for Pride in London, but there is nothing substantial in that. It's mainly just me being an attendee with nothing much to contribute. I did joined the Aspiring Solicitors Commercial Awareness competition. While I did manage to get through to semi-finals, I don't feel that it is an achievement. I am doubting myself a lot and would be great if anyone could share how they would approach this question. There is one thing that I do two years ago that I learn a lot from. It's not a personal achievement but it is a valuable learning point and that is when I tried to set up a company but failed miserably because my business partner "socially engineered" me into transferring the money from the business to him, leading me in quite a financial trouble. There is no way to talk about this without me sounding stupid. What do you think? Any ideas, advice, comments or feedback will be appreciated. Another unrelated question, how do you deal with jealousy? I stopped checking in LinkedIn because I keep on seeing people getting a training contract. While I am happy for them, it makes me feel like a loser.
