    Hey guys,

    Just wondering if anyone had any examples of competency questions they had been asked at interview, outside of the obvious (innovative solution, teamwork, pressurised situation, communication, leadership)?

    I interviewed, unsuccesfully, for Mayer Brown on the 22nd January. A friend had his interview the week after too.
    Ah, thank you. I can look forward to that delayed PFO with joy so. Hard luck on yours too.

    No sweat, the forty minutes I endured in that office were enough to take any sting off the PFO! The Nabarro partner interview was super relaxed- just a chat about you, the things they found interesting on your form and why you felt the law and Nabarro suited you going forward.

    Hey, in relation to the White & Case video interview can I ask what questions/ type of questions were asked? Any information would be much appreciated!

    Also, has anyone heard back from Wragge or Mayer Brown?
    What stage are you at for Wragge? Post telephone interview?

    Good luck for case study! I'm sure you'll do great I have a number of firms that I am applying to this month that I feel I am probably more suited to so fingers crossed for us!

    I feel like SUCH an idiot!

    I felt my CMS application was VERY strong, but got rejected.

    Today, when I was going through my application emails, it turns out that I didn't complete the CMS WG test because I took their email to be a simple acknowledgement email, ergo rejection. FML

    SOMEBODY SHOOT ME!
    if it makes you feel better you just made me find out the reason for my CMS rejection.

    Try not to be disheartened, you've been shortlisted for a number of interviews which is great!

    As someone else on this thread said, I do believe the hunt for a TC can be a numbers game and everyone needs a bit of luck.....
