Hi everyone,
I'm a GDL student at the University of Law. I started applying for vacation schemes and training while living abroad last year, got onto a vacation scheme and assessment centre then but in both failed at the interview stage.
Sending out applications again this year, managed to arrange two vacation schemes so far, one Spring and one Summer. Just did another assessment centre today and got a Watson Glaser to do this week.
Main concern is still interviews, had two firms this cycle where I've been able to get to the final interview and still haven't quite got the hang of them I think. Hoping to pick up some advice here and happy to pass on what I've found out so far.
Anyway, good to meet you all.
