    Hi Jessica

    I just checked it says the following;

    Job Status: Active (Accepting Job Submissions) - it’s under the completed submissions section.

    It’s been on this status for couple weeks now?

    Hey, they started open days this week which may be why it's taking a while to review applications. They were encouraging applicants to still apply at the open day on Tuesday and I know someone who applied on the deadline who is now a trainee, so I wouldn't panic that they've already filled all the places!!

    That’s fairly normal, but if you are worried give them a call next week.

    To whom have you guys addressed the cover letter? Or would you just start the cover letter with "dear graduate recruitment team"? Thanks for any help :)

    You don’t need to submit a cover letter (spoke to GR they said it’s not needed). Just the CV and business topic answer.

    Thanks for your response!! I just thought it would increase my chances, hence, I wrote one.

    If it helps I completed a firm’s Watson glazer (not DLA) in early October and was only offered a video interview in mid November

    Sometimes no news can be good news

    Their website says:
    If your initial application is successful, you will be invited to complete the Watson Glaser critical thinking test

    So I assume this means the application is screened beforehand.

    Hi,

    I’ve just done my WG and I was wondering if any of you have heard straight away with an answer as to whether you’ve passed it or not?

    thanks

    I applied and did the Watson Glaser and heard nothing until I was invited to an AC two months after my Watson Glaser so I wouldn't worry! And I didn't submit a cover letter :)

    Do you need to complete the Watson Glaser before the deadline? I have submitted my application but haven’t received an email to complete the Watson Glaser test.

    Hi, I asked graduate recruitment and it seems you can still complete the wg test after the deadline, as long as you submitted your application before the deadline.

    Hope that helps :)

    Hi Flora,

    do you know whether I have to stick to the characters or the word limit?
    I had to reduce my word count of 250 as it exceeded the character limit of 1500 stated. However, when I tried to save it an alert stated the maximum character was 1600. I managed to cut it down to 1538 characters. Do you have any insight on whether I need to stick to the 1500 or 1600 character reference?

    Judy :)

    Sorry Judy only just seen this. I was slightly confused about this too but mine allowed me to save it all so I hope it hasn't cut any off! Think mine was about 244 words.
