    So has anyone had an interview with Clyde & Co?? Mine is on Tuesday, hope I ace it because I am really keen on Clyde!
    Hope you don't mind me asking, but what sort of questions did they ask you in the interview?

    Is this after video interview? As far as I know they are still inviting people to interviews they will probably wait until the video interviews are completed before offering places?

    No idea regarding the level of difficulty. I have been invited to take the test too.
    I took the test this morning, it was pretty standard, just waiting to hear the outcome now..

    Anybody else surprised by how much interest some firms seem to take in in where else you've applied/have offers from during interviews?

    Yeah everywhere I've been has asked me that! Not sure if they want to see how 'good' you are or maybe just seeing if you're consistent in factors that you've thought of when applying… didn't expect them to care so much, bit nosy

    Yeah, I applied for a range of firms, so always need to tread carefully when asked the question haha. They tend to ask in a roundabout way in a typically lawyerly fashion!

    I'm beginning to wonder whether offers elsewhere can be used to make some other firm get a move on, similar thing is done in finance.

    Hey, I have an interview with them next Tuesday, would it be possible to tell me more about what happened? Questions asked? Tips? Etc. Thanks!
    Hey sure! Not sure how much of a help I'll be because the interview process was different to the one they did in Edinburgh - so I don't know if it's different for each office.

    The competency test is the most challenging part but I just found that keeping in mind they're asking you to absorb and process a lot of work in a very short time frame so don't stress to much.

    The interview was VERY competency based - like extremely so - I was surprised!

    Thank you - that is very helpful! I didnt know there was a competency test? What is that about? Also, were there any news/current affair questions?

    It seems like it's really important to them to know where you're at with other firms and also to see if you are serious about the kind of firm you're interested in.

    At the travers smith interview, he asked what other firms I applied to and why for each one that I named - at that point I couldn't even remember why myself 😁

    Seems to be about consistency and whether you've got a solid rationale for picking the firms that you have. Made a mistake with this in my first interview.

    This is a pretty standard interview question. Very good way of trying to get details of why they are applying to you, what factors they are considering and the candidate's selection process. I probably asked a question that would test this (even if indirectly) in every interview.
