The first thing is you have to check with your vac scheme firm that you can miss a day. Some firms will say no, while others are accommodating.Hi any help here would be appreciated. I have been offered a place on the direct TC assessment day for my favourite firm, however it overlaps with another VAC scheme which I have accepted. Obviously attending both would be my preference - but how fatal would missing a day of a VAC scheme to attend another firm's assessment day be for the firm at which I have a VAC scheme? The scheme is a week long and there are no other dates available for the AC.
However, if it is a week long, I personally don’t think it is a good idea to miss one day. It’s slightly different if it was 3-4 weeks, but because it is so short, I think it could have a big impact on your scheme.
I would instead ask again whether the TC firm can provide alternative interview dates. This is by far the better option here and if you explain you are on a vacation scheme they may just have more flexibility than they are currently suggesting.
