    Given that lawyers supposedly pride themselves on clarity, you'd have thought they'd have realised by now how problematic midnight deadlines are. Just do everyone a favour and use 23:59.


    Tell me about it! Would certainly ease my stress levels :eek:

    I disagree - it's pretty clear it's the date in question up until 23.59.

    I ran out of things to say and began waffling, uming and aring, and then repeating myself and generally just looked like an outright buffoon. Safe to say I've not been shortlisted.

    Not necessarily - my deadline of 2nd February (GMT 00.00) has friends, family and a fair few people on this board offering different answers on whether that means today before midnight or tomorrow before midnight.

    If it's a online application it's 23.59. If it's a manual system then it's all down to discretion.

    But I've never known it to actually be the day before the deadline in question.

    Don't be disheartened. From my experience video interviews tend to go better than people think; be confident and enthusiastic, that's the key thing!

    Invite to IM video interview (applied Saturday). Has anyone been asked any commercial questions or is it just competency?

    Also does everyone receive a video interview invite? I'm just wondering because I only submitted my application 2 days ago so seems pretty quick (:

    good of luck to everyone with interviews

    Hey I did mine yesterday, it was all competency questions. From my experiences they dont invite everyone to the video interviews, but they recruit on a rolling basis so that might explain their quick response!

    I just got a video interview for KWM too! Still hoping to get some examples of the questions they ask, since this seems to be a completely new stage of their application process. *=)

    Thanks (: were there many that threw you off? I did the telephone interview last year and remember it being all competency based but this is my first video interview. Any tips on video interviews?

    I can't comment on IM interview specifically, but general tips for video interview:

    - make sure you're well lit
    - look straight at the camera not at yourself - might be helpful to put your laptop (if thats what you're using) on a large book or box to make sure the camera is at eye level.
    - have a glass of water handy (I had a coughing fit half way through mine!)
    - keep an eye on the clock so you know how much time you have left - don't want to risk being cut off mid-way through an amazing answer.

    Good luck!
