    has anyone heard from withers or boodle hatfield re vacation scheme application? also ADVISEE- if I've been rejected from foresters open day/interview- do you think its worth emailing/phoning for feedback or not? thanks so much
    Someone in this thread has an interview with Withers. The worst thing they can say if you ask for feedback is no, I always do, feedback can be super helpful and it also shows you are actually interested in improving yourself for the future.

    i applied on 30th jan- what about you? will we just receive an email?
    I applied at the very end of December (like 31st).... People have been rejected though so I don't know what to make of the fact that people who applied after me had interviews. As to whether we receive an email - someone on here said that they didn't but when they logged in to the firm's page they had an invite

    I haven't heard from Boodle yet, when did you apply? A couple of people on here had interviews though
    I haven't heard yet either, do they take applications on a rolling basis, because I applied like a month ago.

    Do you always ask for feedback if you've had an interview? I was rejected after a telephone interview this week - the email didn't say anything about feedback but as I felt the interview went well it would be interesting to hear where I tripped up

    Yeah I usually email and ask if I'm rejected at any stage. Sometimes they say they have too many applications to give any feedback, but they're generally really good about it.

    I just logged in, I applied on the 12th of January. I have only got the confirmation email from them. The waiting game is not fun! Good luck though

    I've only had a confirmation too - I guess if we haven't been rejected maybe we are still in the running? I know they hold a open day if they still like you but don't offer you a Vac Scheme (or at least I think they do?) Good luck

    Yup even after application! I usually preface it by saying I know it may not be possible due to the volume of applications, but any feedback on where they felt my application was weakest would be very helpful.

    Thank you, that's very helpful. Although it's bizzare that they would tell us that they would get back to us by the 20th of february.

    Good luck

    Good luck I hope we hear from them soon with an invite to a

    DWF interview. However, they wrote:

    "However, as you have noted that you are available to start a training contract in 2015/ 2016 we would like to fast-track your application and progress you to an interview for a Training Contract instead of the Vacation Scheme."

    Is that quite a common procedure to allow them to get an understanding of more candidates?
    Hey can I ask which office this is for?

    Thank you that's really useful to know - I've always just assumed that they would be like "NO"
