This is my first time posting on here!
I am a Law Graduate, and recently made it to a final stage TC interview following a Vac Scheme, but I was unsuccessful. The feedback I received was that I performed well in all my tasks and I came across very well in all my meetings and discussions. However, for two tasks and the negotiation exercise, there were concerns about my analysis and my ability to orally communicate this (both task-wise and with commercial awareness). This is why, following quite a difficult TC interview, I was not offered the TC.
I was just wondering if anybody had any advice about improving these areas (deep analysis and communicating this, particularly when it comes to Commercial Awareness).
Also, if anybody has any tips on overcoming this rejection. This firm's policy means you can't reapply following rejection, but I'd hate to make the same mistakes with another firm! Unfortunately I had an overrunning medical appointment so I missed yesterday's...
