    Hi,

    I am through to the next round of Clifford Chance open day interviews and for this stage I have a video interview which I take from my home on webcam.

    I will be getting two questions in the interview. My question here is, has anyone taken this interview? If so, what questions came up?

    Many thanks in advance

    Hey! I was at the same stage as you but unfortunately I think it went horrendously. I just took it this evening. Did you take yours yet?

    Who knows.

    I imagine you might not get anyone telling you on here - I would totally imagine that you can get some hints at what they might ask from reading the material on their site as to what they are looking for - check out what it is that CC tend to think differentiates them from other law firms - they might ask you something that allows you to demonstrate how you are that person.

    google 'Clifford Chance + 'what we look for' or 'our values' or 'what makes us different' -

    Just prepare some basic stuff - tell us about a law thing that interested you lately, tell us about when you worked in a team, tell us you know, what sort of animal you would be and why, describe yourself in three words and why

    You will do yourself a lot of favours by doing this - sort out your video background - do not have something inappropriate in the background; do not let your cat or flat mate wander in when you are doing it. Look at the CAMERA and not at the MONITOR. if you do this, I can pretty much guarantee that you will stand out as most candidates will watch themselves. Dress smart and smile before you answer. You can even say hello! The video will be watched by a person. last tip; time the answer so you are not cut off - look like someone and sound like someone basically, with something about them - someone who might be someone useful in the future - someone you might want to meet.

    It hardly seems likely they will ask you anything difficult;

    Also, just to let you know - the response frame is really short, so you need to be really concise!

    Has anyone who applied heard a yes or a no either way after the video interview? Just wondering when we'll find out - hate waiting for news and I'm sure everyone else is the same haha

    Hi there, I have taken the video interview.

    As I have commented in another thread relating to this, just be yourself and stay calm. As others have already noted, keep your response short and stay professional like what you would encounter at a face-to-face interview.

    Other people have asked me about the questions that showed up on the interview, so feel free to PM me if you would like to know what it is related to.
