    Question guys. I have an interview on Wednesday with a law firm for a Graduate support analyst role. Don't really want it 100% but it's a job. I also have an Ernst and Young interview this week which is a lot more appealing in terms of prestige... lets say I get an offer from the law firm first, if I accept it would I have to stay there for a minimum period or would it be fine to just leave and go to the Ernst and Young graduate scheme if/when i get the offer?
    well you would resign with notice to be as professional as possible, usually 2 weeks.

    although, I presume they would give you a standing offer with time to accept and weigh your options.

    in any case, they may 'hire' you, without the signing of an employment contract. a company must present you with this within 21 days of work iirc. it need not be straightaway.

    best choice, is to take it (if you have to i.e. no standing offer), and move on to E&Y if it presents itself. it will not take long in the grand scheme of things.

    what law firm btw?

    Just sent off my UCAS (again). Nervous as **** now. Last year I had predicted grades to guide me but cause I'm retaking privately this year I don't have any. Means there's a chance that uni's will see my grades and flat out reject me before even looking at my application or seeing that I'm retaking


    All I want is one offer to calm things down haha

    Yes, I am anticipating a standing offer and how it will buy me some time to 'think' about how to move forward.

    No not yet with that. Legal work experience to boost CV when it comes to the time to look for a Training contract etc.

    do you have contacts?

    a lot of firms will be unwilling to accommodate you when they cant get anything from you.

    those that do provide, its generally very low level work, that you would do for example in year 10 work experience.

    best to get involved with your Law Society, mooting and pro bono opportunities tbh (in lieu of such low level work)

    Just realise tbh that I feel absolutely no interest at all in the law job but it's a job (a ****ty business support analyst job at that). I really hope (and pray) that I get the Ernst and Young grad scheme role.
