    No not yet- they say you'll hear around mid-March after they've done all interviews. Interview is all competency based and is with an associate and a member of HR

    Has anyone had a 'strengths based' interview (as opposed to competency) - if so, how did you find it?

    I hope the interview went well! Was this for the London or Birmingham office?
    Thanks! I've actually got mine next Monday, it was the earliest date available when booking. I've applied for the London office, what about you?

    Yeah I did - the assessment centre was pretty straightforward (though it was my first one so nothing to compare it to). We did a 30min group exercise and a 30min individual exercise. Then a tour of their offices and a quick chat with a couple of trainees. Which office have you applied to?
    Well done on getting through! If you don't mind me asking, have you received an offer? Also was the group exercise a case study or was that the individual exercise? I've applied for the London office, how about you? I really like the firm from what I've researched, just hoping that I get through to an assessment centre.

    Yeah I've been offered a vac scheme in the summer, really pleased! I applied to birmigham - they were really friendly and the offices are brilliant. I'm not sure how the assessment centre might differ in london but I imagine it must be pretty similar. The group exercise was prioritising the factors firms need to consider in the future while the individual one was interviewing a client about a problem then recommending some solutions. Good luck for your interview - let me know if there's anything else!

    Re Baker & McKenzie, does anyone know what the 'contacted' status on CVmail means? I emailed them to ask if an email got lost on the way, but they just gave me a generic reply along the lines of we're still looking at applications blablabla leave us alone blablabla

    Interviewed with Travers on Thursday and waiting to hear back - Interviewer mentioned that he was away on holiday this week.

    Really hoping that I don't have to wait till next week to find out, considering I can potentially do one of their dates..

    That's weird, I interviewed yesterday and already received my email telling me to get lost just now (24 hours post-interview!), really disappointing :/ so I would say be pleased that they haven't given you a quick rejection and are considering you seriously! I thought my debates with the interviewer had gone fairly well so this is quite disheartening
