    Sure it's not as bad as you thought! Dreading doing mine! Guessing you get about 2 mins to answer, will have to speak quickly
    Good luck i finished my answers with about 10 seconds to spare - I'm pretty sure mine was terrible but oh well onwards and upwards!

    Hi everyone,

    I have been invited to complete a video interview with Hill Dickinson. Any advice and/or tips as whether this is wholly competency, or mixed with commercial awareness etc?

    Thanks for any guidance!

    I have 2 questions about an application form I am filling in:

    1. The application asks for a high point as in a job, task or project I did well with regard to ECs- is it appropriate to use representative experience where I solved a really big issue the students had?

    2. The application form asks for a cover letter as in a formal letter of introduction - does that include addresses etc? Or can I just write Dear X, graduate recruitment manager etc

    Thank you (:

    Hi to all, I can see that some people have been wondering what is happening with Mishcon de Reya so thought I would let you know about my app process. I applied end of November, heard back middle of Jan with invite for video interview, received an assessment day invite on tuesday this week and had the A/C on Weds, and then received the vac scheme offer on Weds itself. --- for those who applied later (in Jan) there is a chance you may not make it to the A/C if you haven't heard now as they do recruit on a rolling basis and don't have many spaces on the vac scheme.

    This is the only app I made and so I cannot comment on other firms processes.

    Good luck to all still waiting to hear!

    Thanks for this - v informative if disappointing! I work full time so didn't have a chance to do my app earlier than Jan as was flooded with work before Christmas. Such a pain that might be what lets me down.

    Do you know how many assessment days they're holding? They didn't give you much notice!

    Congrats on the offer.

    Hey, do you mind telling me your deadline to complete the video interview by please? My deadline to do it was the 4th so just wondering if they will be responding on a rolling basis too.

    I had very generic questions but I did it a while ago and have done another since and so I cannot remember the exact questions. I'm also not sure if each candidate has the same questions or if they are randomly picked from a bank. Sorry to be of very little help! I do remember that you get 30 seconds before the camera starts recording (more forgiving than my other one which gave you 15!).

    Hi there!

    My deadline is 11th Feb.

    That's great advice, thanks! Can you recall how long you have to reply? I had one which was 2 minutes and another which was only 1 minute - makes all the difference in terms of pressure.

    I doubt it, I haven't heard of anyone getting offers from them yet, so I wouldn't panic!

    I haven't heard yet. Not expecting much though as their application form was a pain in the arse.
