    PFO from Irwin Mitchell
    Absolutely gutted and heartbroken 😔
    I spent such a long time on that application + preparing for video interview 😔
    Well it was not meant to be, for the second time again!

    I know what you mean - although I have a number of deadlines this week and 2 in March - this process seems to never end! Congrats on your offers though - they are very good firms!
    Sadly they don't take that many trainees so it's not too secure but I do really love the firms so will just have to see - and to be far, the small number of trainees is a big reason why I like them so much!

    You have still done really well to get a VS with them - gives you more of an opportunity to build rapport with those that work at the firm I'm sure you'll do well - I, on the hand, have had a flurry of rejections! rather disheartening

    I completed my video interview on the 8th of Feb.

    This is what they said in my PFO email:

    Unfortunately, due to the large amount of interviews undertaken, we are unable to give individual feedback at this stage. However, we have found that many applicants are unsuccessful due to some of the following reasons:

    - Not fully prepared for the interview;
    - Unable to answer the questions;
    - Not enough detail provided in their responses.

    Therefore, we would recommend that you self-reflect on the interview and undertake some practice interviews that may assist you in future interviews.

    Which office/stream did you apply to? Sorry for the many questions

    I probably seemed very unprepared because I panicked - I did see a few posts about people not thinking it went as well as they'd liked

    I haven't heard from Charles Russell Speechlys either. A friend of mine was invited to do some online tests last week though.

    Got a PFO from Irwin Mitchell as well, which I was definitely expecting. More pleased the wait is over than sad I didn't get it to be honest ... I knew I hadn't done myself justice.

    Haven't heard from Withers yet. I think someone earlier in the thread might have had an interview invite.

    Also PFO'd by IM. Strange as I thought the interview went better than a lot of the first round interviews I've previously had success with.

    Just reaffirms that 'how did your interview go' is such a pointless question!

    Slightly odd question, but does TC recruitment/interviews typically run through to September?

    I'm done with vac schemes by the end of July, but just wondering when would be safe to do a bit of travelling/holidaying before starting final year.
